The fight over the ballot initiatives, as you know if you've turned on the TV for even half a second in the past few weeks, is heating up fast. Last week, the Los Angeles Times' Dust Up blog featured Miriam Gerace, Spokesperson for the No on 4 Campaign for Teen Safety and director of communications for Planned Parenthood Los Angeles, and Katie Short, coauthor of Proposition 4 and legal director of the Life Legal Defense Foundation duking it out over Proposition 4, which would require the parents to be notified of a minor's abortion. The opinion pieces are truly worth the read, containing zingers from both sides, such as: "Who are you trying to kid?" and "[We're] living in the real world...we do hope you'll join us."
