But privately, Nagle could no longer fend off feelings that she was dirty, inadequate and deserving of the shame that followed years of childhood sexual abuse by a family member. She tried twice to take her own life. She was among a half-dozen women who gathered at the Utah Capitol to condemn a recent Utah Supreme Court decision that threw out a state law providing a path for victims to sue an abuser decades later.

In Utah, there are a handful of statutes that provide minors with authority to consent to their own care for specific types of medical treatment, as follows:.
Another consideration for Utah providers arises if they are the recipients of state funds. In many states, specific statutes allow minors to consent to their own care if they have sufficient maturity and understanding to appreciate the consequences of their healthcare decisions. The United States Supreme Court has recognized that, at some point, the constitutional right of privacy allows minors with sufficient maturity to make their own healthcare decisions, especially in matters involving reproductive rights.

However, it is worth Utah physicians considering this doctrine as a helpful tool when considering the risks associated with treatment of a minor patient for contraception without parental involvement. For example, under HIPAA, if a practitioner determines that the minor may consent to their own healthcare, the parents or guardians are no longer the personal representatives for purposes of HIPAA.
