California Proposition 73 Divides Voters over Abortion

In the California November 8 special election, abortion opponents have their best chance in three decades of changing California’s designation as arguably the most pro-choice" state in the nation. Proposition 73 has sparked a highly charged battle that has evenly divided voters.  The measure requires a physician to notify a parent or guardian 48 hours before performing an abortion on a girl under 18 years old. It exempts girls who obtain a judicial waiver or face a medical emergency. Source:  Bill Ainsworth, San Diego Union Tribune, signonsandiego.com.
