Parents need to know

As the father of two pre-teen daughters, I find that Proposition 85 needs to be considered very soulfully by proponents of either side of the right-to-life debate.

For those identifying themselves as pro-life, passage of Proposition 85 speaks to their lifetime involvement in their daughters' decision regarding their lives and the lives of their unborn children.

For those identifying themselves as pro-choice, no less should they desire to be involved in their daughters' decision impacting their immediate and future physical, mental and spiritual health.

To either side: Your daughters will need you, your love, your compassion and support more at this time than ever in their young lives. You need to know what is happening in their lives, and you need to be there for them no matter what your pro-life or pro-choice position.

Vote "yes" on Proposition 85.
