Day of Action to Defeat Prop 73!
Saturday, August 6, 2005
Join The Campaign for Teen Safety, the San Francisco Democratic Party, and the Young Democrats of America for a day of walking precincts and getting out the vote to defeat Prop 73!
The San Francisco voter base is critical to the Democratic turnout in the special election and Prop 73 is the ONLY proposition on the ballot that directly affects the lives of young people. Walk with us on August 6th to protect the health of California’s teens!
WHEN: Saturday, August 6, 2005 at 10 a.m.
WHERE: Holiday Inn Golden Gateway
WHY: Protect California’s teens by turning out San Francisco Voters to vote NO on Prop 73 this November 8th.
We will have a brief training on tips for precinct walking, hit the pavement in target San Francisco districts and turn out democratic voters for the upcoming election.
What is Prop 73?
Proposition 73 would amend the state constitution to require health care providers to notify the parents of young women under the age of 18 before providing abortion services. Once a parent has been notified, a mandatory waiting period of 48 hours is required before the doctor can provide an abortion. Only those teens faced with a medical emergency or those who obtain a “judicial bypass” are exempt from the parental notification requirement.
Proposition 73 would serve as a blatant intrusion by the government into private, personal family matters. It places our most vulnerable teens in jeopardy of severe health consequences such as delaying medical attention or finding their own solutions on the internet or elsewhere. It is a one-size fits all constitutional amendment that brings government into our families’ most personal and sensitive decisions.
