In Calif., no more tanning beds for under-18 crowd

California girls who dream about the sun-kissed skin glorified in song by Katy Perry will have to wait until they turn 18 before they can get the effect from tanning beds under a new first-in-the-nation law.

Gov. Jerry Brown announced Sunday that he had signed into law a bill that prevents children under 18 from using the popular tanning method. The law takes effect Jan. 1.

Although Texas has banned the use of tanning beds for children under 16, the bill makes California the first state to set a higher age limit. Thirty other states also have some age restrictions on the use, said the bill’s author, state Sen. Ted Lieu.

Under current law, children 14 and under in California already cannot use the beds, but those ages 15 to 17 can do so with permission from their parents. Illinois, New York, Ohio and Rhode Island have considered an age limit similar to California’s, but have yet to enact them, said the Democrat from Torrance, California.

The California Democrat dominated legislature and the Democrat Governor Jerry Brown, pro-choicers all, don’t think a teenager can make a responsible decision about getting a tan… but in California any under-age child can get an abortion without parental notification (often with the connivance of public school staff).  Even in other states that do have parental notification laws, there is an entire industry devoted to helping kids evade it.

But in California, there is no legal impediment to any pregnant child getting an abortion without ANY input from parents.   So not only do parents have no opportunity to inform the “doctor” who is killing their grandchild about any possible medical complications, but they have no ability to counsel a scared child about an act that will be undoable, and will have lifelong repercussions, both medically, psychologically, and spiritually.

California, the pure pro-choice state!  Except you can’t get a tan in a booth until you’re 18.
