Prop 4

((I know I've been a bit political lately but this stuff matters alot to me so bear with me))

For the third time in four years, Proposition 4 is a ballot measure which would endanger teens by mandating parental notification 48 hours in advance of a minor terminating a pregnancy. Parents rightfully want to be involved in their teenagers' lives, and the good news is that most teens do go to their parents when faced with an unintended pregnancy. However not all teens are in a situation where it’s safe for them to go to their parent. Not everyone has the loving parent that they deserve. Please understand that while it’d be wonderful if all teens could go to their parents in their time of need, not all are in a position where it’s safe for them to be able to. Please vote NO on prop 4. Don't put these girls at risk.

A few things I've learned from my nanny/mothers helper job.
1. Ponytails are key unless you want your hair pulled
2. Try to get your baby used to a baby sling before its too late or you'll have tired arms
3. Growing in teeth sucks
4. The smell of baby powder lingers on ones hands- according to Corey
5. The sounds baby swings make to help the baby sleep make me tired too

Its good to know the facts

I've seen some interesting and slightly confusing ads about Prop 8. lately so I did some research. Personally I'm for gay marriage, but I'm against forcing churches to marry people if they dont want to. It's wrong to force people to do something they're opposed to. I'm not sure how you all feel about gay marriage... but however you feel personally about this topic, I think it's important to not be misled. Know the facts about Prop. 8 before voting. :]

Fiction: Teaching children about same-sex marriage will happen here unless we pass Prop 8.

Fact: No child can be forced, against the will of their parents, to be taught anything about health and family issues at school. California law prohibits it. Sacramento Superior Court Judge Timothy Frawley has already ruled that this claim by Prop 8 proponents is “false and misleading.”

Fiction: Churches could lose their tax-exemption status.

Fact: Nothing in gay marriage would force churches to do anything. In fact, the court decision regarding marriage specifically says “no religion will be required to change its religious policies or practices with regard to same-sex couples, and no religious officiant will be required to solemnize a marriage in contravention of his or her religious beliefs.”

Fiction: A Massachusetts case about a parent’s objection to the school curriculum will happen here.

Fact: Unlike Massachusetts, California gives parents an absolute right to remove their kids and opt-out of teaching on health and family instruction they don’t agree with. The opponents know that California law already covers this and Prop 8 won’t affect it, so they bring up an irrelevant case in Massachusetts.

Fiction: People can be sued over personal beliefs.

Fact: California’s laws already prohibit discrimination against anyone based on race, religion, gender, or sexual orientation. This has nothing to do with marriage.

Fiction: Unless Prop 8 passes, CA parents won’t have the right to object to what their children are taught in school.

Fact: California law clearly gives parents and guardians broad authority to remove their children from any health instruction if it conflicts with their religious beliefs or moral convictions.
