On the next Hometown, Alaska, we will be discussing the contentious ballot measure two, a bill that would make it mandatory for minors seeking an abortion to have notification or consent of a parent or guardian or through a judicial bypass. Proponents say they want the basic right to oversee their daughters’ medical decisions, and opponents state this bill would put government and the courts in the middle of Alaska’s families. Join host Teeka Ballas and her guests from as they take a closer look at this bill and your phone calls. Listen and participate in the live call-in Thursday at 2:00 pm.
