Ban on Gay Marriage, Abortion Parental Notification Both Winning in California

For indispensable reporting on the coronavirus crisis, the election, and more, subscribe to the Mother Jones Daily newsletter.


With 14% of precincts reporting, Prop 8, which would amend California’s constitution to eliminate equal marriage rights is leading 55% to 45%. Still too soon to call, but it’s not looking good.

On a similar note, California’s initiative that would mandate parental notification for minors who want an abortion is also leading with 13% reporting, 51% to 49%.

Dear Reader,

This feels like the most important fundraising drive since I've been CEO of Mother Jones, with staggeringly high stakes and so much uncertainty. In "News Is Just Like Waste Management," I try to unpack the reality we all face and how we can rise to the challenge. If you're able to, this is a critical moment to support Mother Jones’ nonprofit journalism: We need to raise $400,000 to help cover the vital reporting projects we have planned, and right now is no time to pull back.
