California
Abortion
This measure would amend the state constitution to require physicians to notify the parents or legal guardian of a pregnant minor at least 48 hours before performing an abortion involving that minor. The measure does not require that parent or guardian’s actual consent in order to perform the abortion. Exceptions are provided in the cases of medical emergencies. Also, an adult family may be notified instead if the minor fears abuse from the parent or guardian. Parents may also waive the notification requirement.

PROJECTED WINNER: NO

Colorado
Human being
This measure would amend the state constitution to define the term “person” to include “any human being from the moment of fertilization.” This definition would be applied to all aspects of the state constitution, including the provisions that ensure that no person has his or her life, liberty, or property taken away without due process of law. Thus, the measure would essentially have the effect of banning abortion.

PROJECTED WINNER: NO

Michigan
Allow medical marijuana
This measure would allow the medical use of marijuana. Use would be limited to registered patients with certain debilitating medical conditions including cancer, glaucoma, HIV, hepatitis C, epilepsy and multiple sclerosis. However, the measure would also allow unregistered patients and primary caregivers to assert medical reasons for using marijuana as a defense to any prosecution involving marijuana.

PROJECTED WINNER: YES

South Dakota
Abortion
This measure would prohibit all abortions in the state except in cases where mother’s life or health is at risk or in cases of rape or incest for pregnancies of less than 20 weeks. A similar measure that did not include exceptions for rape or the health of the mother was on the ballot in 2006, but was rejected by voters 44 to 56 percent.

PROJECTED WINNER: NO

Washington
Assisted suicide
This measure would allow terminally ill, competent, adult residents of the state to request and self-administer lethal medication prescribed by a physician. The person requesting to end his or her life must be medically predicted to have six months or less to live.
PROJECTED WINNER: YES
