Voters Mull Parental Notification Once Again
California voters are considering a measure that would require parental notification and a 48-hour waiting period for minors seeking an abortion. Similar measures failed in 2005 and 2006. Grace Delaney, spokesperson for the "Yes on 4" campaign, Vince Hall, a spokesperson for Planned Parenthood and "The Campaign for Teen Safety," and Peter Hecht, a Sacramento Bee reporter who has coveredÂ parental notification measures, discuss the fate of Proposition 4.
