Oregon: Oppose Measure 43!
October 3, 2006
Oregon voters will also be asked to consider a parental notification ballot initiative this November. The Oregon proposal would require 48-hour written notice to a parent before a teen between the ages of 15-17 has an abortion. Oregon law already requires teens who are 14 or under to obtain parental consent for any medical treatment. This new provision could endanger our most vulnerable teens – those from abusive families, or victims of incest.
