Malloy and his pals have banned all teens from indoor tanning salons, thus repealing their previous rule that permitted such use with parental consent. How can a parent possibly know as much about child safety as a pack of professional Democrat politicians? That’s why these same politicians have excluded parents from any decision involving the health and safety of their children and have taken that power unto themselves.
So if you’re 12 (or any age, so long as you’re pregnant, you have an absolute right to have an abortion, even a late-term abortion, without the consent of or even notice to your parents, but can no longer use a tanning salon until 17.
Which do you suppose is riskier, exposure to UV rays indoors (as opposed to walking outdoors or engaging in jet travel), or an abortion performed on an 8-month-pregnant 12-year old? The Democrats say it’s that tanning booth. These great thinkers are responsible for spending $20.5 billion of our earnings this year.
