As the Election Nears: Proposition 4

Hosted by

Parental notification for abortion has been defeated in two prior elections, but a poll by the Public Policy Institute shows likely voters closely divided this time around: 46% say yes, 44% no, with 10% undecided. Proposition 4 would prohibit abortion for a minor until 48 hours after a doctor notifies her parents or legal guardian. Doctors could be held liable for damages if they failed to comply. There would be exceptions for medical emergencies and fear of child abuse.
