14     Sec. 3.  Section 141.22, subsection 6, Code 1995,

16     6.  A person may apply for voluntary treatment,
17   contraceptive services, or screening or treatment for
18   AIDS and other sexually transmitted diseases, directly
19   to a licensed physician and surgeon, an osteopathic
20   physician and surgeon, or a family planning clinic.

22   person seeking the treatment is a minor who has
23   personally made a parent, legal guardian, or
24   shall make the application for services, screening, or
25   treatment, the fact that the minor sought services or
26   is receiving services, screening, or treatment shall
27   not be reported or disclosed, except for statistical

33   custodian is required to be informed by the testing
34   facility.  Testing facilities where minors are tested

41   statute, regulation, or center for disease control
42   guidelines, from informing the legal guardian is
43   exempt from the notification requirement, but not from
44   the requirement for an assistance program.  The minor
45   shall give written consent to these procedures and to
46   receive the services, screening, or treatment.  Such
47   consent is not subject to later disaffirmance by
48   reason of minority.
