Well, in many states in the US, children don't even have to notify their parents to get an abortion. California is the most populous state, and has no such requirement for abortions to be performed.

If we allow children to abort pregnancies without notifying parents, we can allow IUDs without parental notification.

But teens, despite most have no shame feeling to make sex or use drug or get drunk, can have shame feeling about to the doctor or gynecologist.

Next day pill should be selled easier. The pill to take in the following days after relation, in case of suspect there was risk of pregnancy. Not sure if I correct translated the name of the pill.
The good way to avoid abortion of fetus with brains: The period didn't came and she had relation without safe precaution? Take the pill.

Perhaps long term there will be some savings to be had by moving towards renewables, but that isn't evident yet. There will likely be no way to quantify the health impacts of going to renewables, other than the clear cases of technicians who fall to their deaths while installing solar roofs, or while working on wind turbines.
So, innovations for renewable energy will help the economy; and not hurt it.

There are plenty of ways to quantify the health effects of fossil fuels. Fossil fuels use / pollute a lot of water, as well.

As I said, it's not clear that renewable energy will be a long term cost saving. If it were so now, then we'd just have renewables powering everything.

The health effects of fossil fuel use is not easy to quantify at all. In fact, most every economic and health metric is positively correlated with fossil fuel consumption. In other words, life expectancy has skyrocketed since the age of fossil fuels, and poverty has plummeted.

It's cut and dry that someone falling to their death from a wind turbine has been killed in service of renewable energy, or it's clear cut that a coal mine collapsing and killing a person is directly related to fossil fuels, but someone simply dying of cancer cannot be directly attributed to pollution. It may be easy to quantify fossil fuel related health problems if every other variable remained as it was, but instead every variable has changed.

Fossil fuels have without question resulted in a great good for human well-being. That isn't to deny the negative externalities, but there isn't even a debate about whether measurable things such as poverty and health have improved due to their use.

But it's from 2008, so if it was trully affordable and also effective, it would already had been implemented.

Humanity it's like 2 kids fighting in a living room in someone elses's house. If a adult don' interfeer and punish or menace, the kdis will destroy the room just to keep fighting. If the house have not a present owner, the kids will destroy the house. Well, the kids are the nations competing in a globalized world, and the living room it's planet Earth.

The more nuclear energy options the world has the less rewarding a "war for oil" becomes.

Renewable energy is growing more quickly than any other energy source. It already is less expensive than any other source.

That's a very "glass 2% full" type of view. Keep in mind when you see green for renewables that this includes wood for heat and biomass energy which even in green Germany is 2/3 of the renewable total.

Just for electric energy in China, Solar and wind cannot even keep up with projected growth over the next 30 years. Primary energy consumption will be 3 times more than this and none of the additional energy in that category would be from solar or wind.
