.- Catholic organizations have less than 80 days to gather one million signatures in support a ballot measure to change the law and give parents the right of notice before abortion providers can perform abortions on their daughters under the age of 18.

Your Catholic Voice, a California-based organization, has joined the California Catholic Conference of Bishops and many other organizations in support of the Parental Notification Initiative.

Ballot supporters are seeking to gather one million signatures by April 15 through churches, schools and Catholic lay and religious organizations.

“We can meet that challenge, but only with your help,” said Your Catholic Voice.

The organization is asking each Catholic to circulate at least one petition and have a team of volunteers running the petition at every parish in California.

“Public opinion polls show 71% of Californians support this initiative,” said Your Catholic Voice. “However, we also know that the abortion industry, which argues that minor children have rights to privacy from their parents, will fight these fundamental parental rights with every penny they can muster. We will have to fight them with our dedication and personal involvement.”
