Parental Notification Back on California Ballot
The Sacramento Bee provides an overview of Proposition 4, which would require parental notification and a 48-hour waiting period for minors seeking an abortion. An opinion piece by Catherine Short, an attorney and co-author of Prop. 4, urges voters to approve the parental-notification measure, while an opinion piece by Cheryl Rollings -- president and CEO of Planned Parenthood of Santa Barbara, Ventura and San Luis Obispo counties -- recommends that voters reject it.
