PARENTAL NOTIFICATION PRIOR TO TERMINATION OF MINOR'S PREGNANCY. INITIATIVE CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT AND STATUTE. Amends Constitution to provide that, except for medical emergency or when waiver of notification has been obtained pursuant to state law, no abortion shall be performed upon an unemancipated minor until the physician notifies minor's parent or legal guardian. Statute provides definitions and authorizes monetary penalty and damages for violation. Statute permits minor to confidentially petition juvenile court for notification waiver based upon clear and convincing evidence of sufficient maturity, physical or sexual abuse by parent or guardian, or that notification is not in minor's best interests. Summary of estimate by Legislative Analyst and Director of Finance of fiscal impact on state and local governments: The net costs of this measure to Medi-Cal and other programs are unknown, but are probably not significant in the context of the total expenditures for these programs.
