PARENTAL NOTIFICATION PRIOR TO TERMINATION OF MINOR'S PREGNANCY. INITIATIVE CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT AND STATUTE. Amends Constitution to provide that, except for medical emergency, 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 damage claim for violation. Statute would also permit unemancipated 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; otherwise, the judge shall order notification by physician. Summary of estimate by Legislative Analyst and Director of Finance of fiscal impact on state and local government: The net fiscal impact of this measure on expenditures for the Medi-Cal Program and the court is unknown, but probably not significant in the context of the total expenditures for these programs.
