Hey All - My name is Justin. I'm a volunteer with NO on 85, a coalition that includes Planned Parenthood, The League of Women Voters, NARAL, ACLU and others.
In case you haven't been following it, Prop 85 is an initiative that would prohibit abortions for minors in California until 48 hours after their parents have been notified. This initiative is dangerous because it would force teens from violent or otherwise abusive homes to involve their parents. And the backers of 85, like Jim Holman and Life on the Ballot, The Traditional Values Coalition and Right to Life of central CA are the same people who want to overturn Roe v. Wade and ban abortion altogether.
Prop 85 is a dangerous and misleading initiative that threatens the health and safety of California’s most vulnerable teens and a woman’s right to choose. Please, help us convince other voters to think outside their bubble and vote NO on Prop. 85!
I'm sure that you all have heard how some certain pharmacies are allowing their pharmacists to deny women birth control pills, even if they have a valid prescription for it, simply because of their religious beliefs.
Well, I just thought that since you are for choice and for birth control and the like, you might want to sign a petition protesting this. This website and their petitions have so far helped several major corporations change their policies on this, and have made it so pharmacies are more birth-control friendly, so women can actually get the prescriptions that they need filled.
The petition can be found here, for those who wish to sign.
