Abortion Clinic Won't Tell Parents If Their Child is There

I was poking around on the Internet when I came upon the website for the Women's Care Clinic in Toronto. The domain name is

How a propos.

From the FAQ:

I’m only 14 can I still have an abortion at your clinic? Will you tell my parents?

Yes, we do not discriminate by age and we do NOT require consent for our clients who are under the age of 18. Furthermore, we do not tell your parents any information even if they call our facility inquiring about your whereabouts. We respect your confidentiality and we ensure your privacy.

Just lovely. Your kid is skipping school, you don't know why, you're mad out of your mind wondering where your kid is, you phone up the clinic thinking she might be there but they won't tell you.

That should be illegal. It should be the law that your kid's whereabouts is your business 24/7.
