California Proposition 73 was on the November 8, 2005 special statewide ballot in California as an initiated constitutional amendment, where it was defeated.

Proposition 73 would have established a mandatory waiting period and parental notification before a minor could obtain an abortion. Similar propositions (Proposition 85 on the 2006 ballot and Proposition 4 on the 2008 ballot) were tried in later years, and also lost.
