Senators hope you have forgotten AB405. They hope that you believe the latest rounds of AP reports that declare it dead. They hope you won’t tell your friends, or call them, or visit them, or – by golly – tell them what to do!

Monday morning, the Senate introduced AB405, parental notification for underage girls seeking an abortion.
In a surprise move, the bill was referred to the Finance Committee. The reporting portion of the bill, the only portion that was found to have fiscal consequences, had been removed on the Assembly side. Again, the phantom $2 million fiscal note is cited as the concern.
The speed with which it was introduced and referred makes me worry. It is not too early to start calling the Senators.
Here is the contact info for the Finance Committee:

Please contact these people and ask them nicely to protect teens, preteens & parents – not predators, politicians and profiteers.
Friday, April 17, 2015, AB405 – parental notification for underage girls seeking an abortion – cleared the first house by a vote of 24-15. This was an amazing victory given that a week before the Associated Press had declared the bill dead.
Please take a moment to thank each of the members of the Assembly who supported parents and teens:

AB405 now goes to the Senate, where it will have a hearing before the HHS committee. To become law, it must pass out of committee then go before the full Senate. Once it passes there, the Governor must sign the bill. At that point, pre-teen and teen girls and their families will finally be protected.
