THE PROBLEM WITH PROPOSITION 1.
ON JANUARY 1, 2023, CALIFORNIA ENACTED PROPOSITION 1:
“The state shall not deny or interfere with an individual’s reproductive freedom in their most intimate decisions, which includes their fundamental right to choose to have an abortion and their fundamental right to choose or refuse contraceptives. . .”
WHAT DOES PROP 1'S LANGUAGE MEAN?
Its broad grant of "reproductive freedom" - regardless of age or maturity - may be an existential threat to public health and protection of women and children.
PROP 1 THREATENS PUBLIC HEALTH.
PROP 1 ERODES PARENTAL RIGHTS TO PROTECT CHILDREN.
PROP 1 ENCOURAGES HUMAN TRAFFICKING AND EXPLOITATION.
HERE'S WHY: "Reproductive freedom" as a fundamental constitutional right may override existing laws that protect children and public health. Existing protections could be deemed "state interference." Read ADF's legal brief here.
Minors may be able to consent to sex at any age and with anyone.
Girls and women may sell eggs and rent their wombs to anyone - including private firms for profit - without state oversight or restrictions.
Minors may consent to mutilating gender reassignment surgeries and permanent hormone blockers without parental consent or even knowledge.
And Prop 1 could override existing public health bans on incest and polygamy because they also interfere with sexual freedom.
Even state regulation of abortion clinics and abortionists could be deemed unconstitutional interference with someone's right to choose a type of reproductive care.
We do not know how expansive this undefined "reproductive freedom" could get.
