Virginia's parental notification law went into effect earlier this month, but already a judge has issued a waiver to it.
The Richmond Times Dispatch says a 17 year old girl told a judge in Charlottesville she did not want to tell her parents she wanted an abortion quote "because they would kill her if they found out."
The judge ruled yesterday the girl would not have to notify her parents.
Officials said the teenager has not yet had the procedure.
Locally David Nova of Planned Parenthood of the Blue Ridge says his group has discussed the judicial waiver provision of the law with several clients.
But Nova says so far, none of his clients has applied for it.
