I have to make a confession regarding yesterday's election. I voted absentee (as usual), but made a mistake on my ballot. I accidentally voted for the ballot measure to require minors to have parental permission and a waiting period before terminating a pregnancy. In my opinion, this was the worst mistake I could have made on the ballot. I wouldn't have minded so much voting no to the cigarette tax initiative, though that was passed by a narrow margin (86). But now that the election is over, I can proudly say that my mistake vote did not matter. The good people of California have voted (85), and they want minors to get the abortions they so desperately need.
