Mother Upset Ballard High School Helped Her Daughter Get an Abortion

One of these women would probably be just as pissed as "Jill."
I would expect most moms who've just found out that their daughter had an abortion without telling them first would be upset. But even still, I'm a little confused about this report from KOMO.

"Jill" is the mother of a 15-year-old at Ballard High School who got in touch with the TV station after her daughter got an abortion. She's upset because she signed a confidentiality form thinking her daughter (whom she oddly describes as a "pro-life advocate") just needed something minor from the clinic, when in fact what she needed was a private place to take a pregnancy test and a note excusing her from class so she could take care of it.

"Makes me feel like my rights were completely stripped away," said "Jill" to KOMO.

Which makes me think she never knew what her, or her daughter's, rights were in the first place.
