As an addendum to yesterday’s post about California ballot initiative Prop 4, which would instate a parental notification requirement for all abortions had by minors in CA, check out this chart which shows the steps a pregnant teen would have to undergo in order to obtain an abortion if Prop 4 became law (pdf; jpg version here).
The process is mind-boggling and highly intimidating to me as an adult woman; consider what it would look like to a pregnant teen girl, and then pass it along to anyone you know who is voting “Yes” or still undecided. And don’t forget to show No on Prop 4 financial support.
