This article shall not be construed to apply to a parental action or decision that would end life.
SUMMARY: The amendment will not apply in cases where a parent's action or decision would end life.
Section Five stipulates that the Amendment will not apply to life-ending decisions. Current law will continue to control in that rare instance. This exclusion was a necessity to avoid the appearance that the PRA would affect the abortion issue either way, which would make its passage a political impossibility.
