This potential California ballot measure would require a medical professional who is performing an abortion to notify a minor’s parents at least 48 hours before the procedure (in writing). Three similar initiatives appeared on the ballot in the past and failed. The last measure in 2008 failed by 52-48. Learn more or See recent abortion news

Under 14 or so there should be some sort of inquiry to figure out who she became pregnant by. Good chance it was a relative, so the parents may not be the best people to notify. 5 years ago from a Green in Brisbane, CA
If the patient states that she does not want her parents/guardians notified, then a public guardian should review the case and approve the procedure, as quickly as possible. 5 years ago from a Democrat in Diamond Bar, CA
Yes, with the caveat of social services also being informed. Parents are responsible for their minor children--legally & socially. They should not be cut out of this enormously important decision. But there is a percentage of bad situations for these... 5 years ago from a Democrat in Glendale, CA
No. Doctor-Patient Confidentiality exists for a reason. You make an exception here, and you're opening a can of worms for exceptions in other cases, too. 5 years ago from a Green in Toluca Lake, CA
Yes, but only for minors under 16 AND with required family counseling for parental and child relations. 5 years ago from a Democrat in Piedmont, CA
Yes, but only with the young lady's consent and otherwise, the parents' need only know that the minor is undergoing a private procedure if there are complications. 5 years ago from a Democrat in Marina Del Rey, CA
No. But in-depth counseling should be made available to the minor both before and after the procedure and alternative living arrangements should be available should the minor choose not to live with parents post-procedure. 5 years ago from a Democrat in Modesto, CA
Generally yes, but allow minors another option if it is dangerous to inform parents. 5 years ago from a Democrat in Walnut Creek, CA
Yes but only if the minor is under 16. 5 years ago from a Democrat in Sacramento, CA
Yes, unless notification will create danger for the minor. 5 years ago from a Green in La Jolla, CA
