As a counselor and the mother of two wonderful daughters, I’m voting no on Measure 43. I’m lucky. I have a close family, but I know that not all families are the same. Some teens can’t talk to their parents about unplanned pregnancies because there is abuse, violence or even incest. I’m worried that Measure 43 would put teens in troubled homes in even more danger. That's why I’m voting no.

As a mother, I’ve always planned to be there for my daughters, but when I was diagnosed with breast cancer, I realized that I might be not be there when they are teenagers. Measure 43 sets up a rigid, bureaucratic process that pushes away other supportive family members and trained professionals like doctors and nurses. It doesn’t make sense, and that's why I’m voting no on Measure 43.
