SACRAMENTO – California legislators have passed a bill allowing nurses and other ‘non-physicians’ to perform abortions on babies up to twelve weeks in gestation.
AB 154, which was sponsored by Democratic Assembly Member Toni Atkins of San Diego, aims to make abortion more accessible in the state, especially in rural areas where abortionists are more difficult to find.
“This bill would state that it is the intent of the legislature to enact legislation that would expand access to reproductive health care in California by allowing qualified health care professionals to perform early abortions,” it reads.
