Welcome to the Campaign for Teen Safety. Please join us in opposing Proposition 4. Prop 4 threatens teen safety by mandating parental notification prior to a minor terminating a pregnancy. Parents rightfully want to be involved in their teenagers' lives and we want our daughters to come to us if they become pregnant, and most do. But in the real world, laws like this donít work. Prop 4 can't force teens to talk to their parents, but it may force them to do something desperate and dangerous.

California voters smartly opposed similar parental notification initiatives in both 2005 and 2006. Please help us keep teens safe by voting NO and sign up now to for more information and to get involved.

Just this month, the Bixby Center for Global Reproductive Health at the University of San Francisco updated their brief on the effects laws like Prop. 4 are having (or not having) in other states. The report verifies what the Los Angeles Times already said in its editorial urging a NO vote..."Proposition 4 attempts to solve something that isn't much of a problem."
