State Rep. Mark Tisdel and the Michigan House of Representatives today approved a plan to reinforce the state’s parental consent protections related to medical decisions for Michigan children.
House Bill 5880 would generally require any licensed or registered medical professional to obtain the consent of a minor’s parent, guardian, or person acting in loco parentis before providing nonemergency health care to the child.
“In Greater Rochester and throughout Michigan, parents lovingly raise their children,” said Tisdel, R-Rochester Hills. “As they help their growing kids get the health care they need, moms and dads in our community want to be informed and engaged. Our simple plan will support Michigan families by ensuring parents are involved in their kids’ medical decisions.”
The House approved the plan with bipartisan support.
State Rep. Mark Tisdel this week introduced a plan to establish reasonable and common-sense practices for post-viability abortions, which voters authorized in the Michigan Constitution when approving Proposal 3 last year.
“Numerous thriving small businesses call Greater Rochester home, supporting jobs for local workers,” said Tisdel, R-Rochester Hills. “As state representative and vice chair of the small business committee, I’m looking out for our small businesses and workers, and I’m excited to listen to workers and business owners as I visit local establishments this fall.”
