The Parental Notification initiative will require that a physician notify a parent at least 48 hours before performing an abortion on a minor girl under the age of 18 (with a judicial bypass for cases of parental abuse).
Thirty-nine states now have parental involvement laws in effect. California will be the 40th. These laws have proven effective in deterring sexual exploitation of minor girls as shown by reductions in pregnancies and sexually transmitted diseases among minor children.
Qualifying and passing a Parental Notification Amendment is of crucial importance in California because approximately 20,000 abortions per year are performed on minor girls in California, which is about 20% of all abortions performed on minor girls in the USA.
Because of the lack of a Parental Notification law in California, minor girls, especially poor, minority, and immigrant girls, are vulnerable to sexual abuse and exploitation by older male predators who can cover up their crimes with secret abortions and then continue the sexual exploitation.
Minors in California also suffer from very high rates of sexually transmitted diseases.
California state government provides state taxpayer funding to perform secret abortions on minor children without parental notification.
We will continue the fight to protect young girls from the dangers of secret abortions. As we plan for the future, Californians for Parental Rights will continue to be accessible at this website.

My grandchild was killed (Petitioner Testimonial) One of our correspondents sent the following email to us on Oct. 21 in response to a request for help with the parental notification initiative. “Yeah I know this. My grandchild was killed by Planned Parenthood in [the 1980's]. My daughter's school “decided to provide her with counseling & transportation for this. I feel even worse for the father's family, a warm Catholic family. Either family would have helped raise this child.”
St. Anne’s Church in San Diego 500 signatures, 400 packets handed out Turned in 500 signatures in a parish only with 350 registered families. Also handed out over 400 petition packets for churchgoers to get signatures from family, friends, and neighbors. St. Anne's was the first of the state’s 1,100 Catholic churches to turn in petitions. About 50 Catholic churches already have petitions. The California bishops seem close to issuing a statement of support, which will increase parish participation.
