No, no, no, NO on Prop 85

California Proposition 85: Waiting Period and Parental Notification before Termination of Minor's Pregnancy. (Initiative Constitutional Amendment)

Proponents would have you believe that passing a ballot measure will magically make families communicate and make teenagers behave responsibly. Public policy shouldn't be guided by idyllic fantasies. "The California Supreme Court found overwhelming evidence that similar laws in other states cause real harm to teenagers and families." That's a quote out of the voter information guide, but I couldn't put it better.

The authoritarian religious right is trying to impose by force its narrow theocratic agenda. Don't be a part of it. Vote no on 85.
