California Bans Tanning Bed Use By Minors… But Abortions Are OK


California Governor Jerry Brown signed a bill today that bans tanning bed use by minors.
Reuters reported, via Free Republic:

Minors in the state of California will no longer be allowed to use tanning beds after Governor Jerry Brown signed a bill on Sunday prohibiting anyone under the age of 18 from using ultraviolet tanning devices.

California is the first state in the nation to ban minors from using tanning beds, legislators said.

Previously, California had banned minors under the age of 14 from using tanning beds, but allowed those between 14 and 18 years of age to use tanning beds with parental consent.

The bill was part of a cluster of legislation signed on Sunday designed to “improve the health and well-being of Calfornians,” according to a statement from the Governor’s office.

In 1997 a California court overturned a state law that required girls get the approval of a parent or judge before having an abortion.

    What about medical tanning? Sometimes a psyche will be irreparably damaged without a tan.

    ++++
    That is because getting an abortion is a Constitutional right for kids of all ages,
    and tanning is something rich white kids do for fun

  • srhoades

    All this is going to do is force kids into going to back alley tanning salons.

  • jainphx

    Priorities, priorities, got to get those priorities in order. One takes a life and the other takes the white away, which do we go with?

    The mind set of the refugees from California is astounding. You ask them why they moved here to Arizona, and they are rather very knowing of the reasons. They say taxes to high, business’s have to many restrictions, spending all their money on illegals, silly laws shoved down their throats. All well and good, now you ask them who they are voting for in next election they say Demoncraps, to which I say, aren’t they the ones that did all you ran from? go fgigure.

    ALL elections in California are directed by the public sector labor union money. That money goes exclusively to Democrats as they are mindless stooges that will promote, and vote for anything as a pay off their labor union masters.

    The largest public sector union is the teachers union. Teachers ALL have the desire to inflict their values and beliefs, including their marxist labor union tendencies, onto all of their students. To them, telling students what their lives should consist of when the teacher is not present is exactly what their fascist instincts tell them is proper. This is not about saving lives, it is about extending teacher union power to control the lives of the students.

  • savethenation

    What can I say, it’s California. What could they possibly be thinking of next?

    What about illegal immigrant children? Will the state taxpayers pick up the tab for them to go to a tanning booth?

  • Beef

    This law should be struck down as racist on the doctrine of disparate impact. It is only concerned with the welfare of white minors.

    I guess that “not every human problem deserves a law” spiel by Jerry Brown was all BS then.

    Uhhhhh, there is a Nuclear Fusion tanning device overhead, so kids can’t play outside or go to the beach?

  • Mike in VA

    Can they not just lay in the sun?

    @MrGoodWench only white kids need tans…

  • Redwine

    Please remember that the first tax levied by the regime was on tanning salons. This was a racist test case against the white population (those who mainly frequent tanning salons) to see what kind of reaction there would be. No one challenged the tax, so the regime knew it could proceed with its racist, anti-white agenda. Now this ban in CA will put another regulation on a predominantly white business.

  • Sam Stone

    Now they will lose the 10% racist tanning tax Obama put into place in year one.

  • Henry

    Good ole California. That’s right!

    Smoke a joint and go abort a child but do it without a tan! Dumb F’s

    This will probably kill the tanning industry. Suspect that indestructable teens who have no fear of skin cancers are a big part of the repeat business. Just another attack on small business, regardless about how you feel about the tanning industry, this is an atack on our freedom.

    Governor Retread is just doing what he has done in California since the 70’s. I remember when he would not spray the med flies and had to quarantine a big part of the citrus crop.
    Loser.

    the only way to improve CA is to give it back to mexico then we don’t have to deal with all the demo-turds in the state…brain dead state

  • tadcf

    This is because tanning beds have the capability of injuring people without their knowledge, while abortions don’t–except in the minds of religious fanatics.

  • Uncle Monkey

    But what you can do to your toddler/child/live-in little person vertically and age-challenged person is give him/her/it piercings and tats.

    Because that celebrates the individuality of the toddler/child/live-in vertically and age-challenged person you know.

    the deeply demented Democrats that have ruined the state of California continue to prove themselves unworthy of political position – or of any authority of any sort whatsoever … they also keep providing reasons for the people who actually do things and earn money here to leave en-mass as soon as they can, just as I am … the military vote is the only thing that keeps the state from simply divesting itself from the rest of the US – and the real world
