No on California’s Prop. 4 mandating parental notification

Post to Twitter Post to Facebook

… Californians will soon be voting on a ballot measure that would endanger teens by mandating parental notification 48 hours in advance of a minor terminating a pregnancy, this is Prop. 4.

By now, you’ve probably read all about the measure: how it will put teenagers in real danger, how the alternative family member notification and judicial bypass are unreasonable, and how medical experts, research, and the experiences of states with similar laws all discredit this measure. Now, you can watch our new videos about Prop. 4’s failures here.

Our new ad, “Room,” highlights the reality that Prop. 4 puts teens in real danger, while Jane’s Journey shows the complexity of the judicial maze that teens would be forced to navigate if they can’t talk to their parents. I wanted you to be one of the first to see the video and share it with your readers.

After you’ve read and watched what we have to say, you can read what others have been saying. Our press section contains all of the editorials written against this ill-conceived measure. By raising your voice in opposition to Prop. 4, you’ll be joining newspapers like The Santa Barbara Independent, Santa Cruz Sentinel, San Francisco Chronicle, Sacramento Bee and The New York Times.
