Survey Finds 48% of Respondents Oppose Parental Notification Measure
Forty-eight percent of likely California voters oppose Proposition 73, a measure on the Nov. 8 special election ballot that would amend the state constitution to require health care providers to notify parents or guardians 48 hours before they perform an abortion on an unmarried minor, according to a Public Policy Institute of California survey released on Wednesday, the Los Angeles Times reports. According to the survey, 44% of respondents support the measure.
The survey, which was conducted from Aug. 8 to Aug. 15, included responses from 2,004 adults living in California, including 988 likely voters. The margin of error of the survey was plus or minus two percentage points for all respondents and plus or minus three percentage points for likely voters (Salladay, Los Angeles Times, 8/25).
The survey is available online.
