Despite passing twelve bills and a constitutional amendment to increase the number of children killed by abortion last year, California legislators still think the state isn’t abortion friendly enough. According to an updated report from the California Future of Abortion Council released this month, pro-abortion legislators and activists have a list of 36 pro-abortion policies they hope to implement this year.
The list includes numerous proposals to increase funding for abortion so finances don’t get in the way of ending the life of a child. But the recommendations also include the following proposals:
- Removing barriers to women wanting a third-trimester abortion after the baby can survive outside the womb.
- Making sure Medi-Cal policies permanently give women access to chemical abortion drugs, mifepristone, and misoprostol, without having to see a doctor in person. This increases the chance the abortion will fail and the woman will give birth to a live baby.
- Requiring school districts to participate in the California Health Kids Survey which asks minors personal questions about who they are sexually attracted to.
- Funding a statewide campaign to address “harmful misinformation and services” provided by Pro-Life Pregnancy Care Centers.
- Removing from the books a 1987 law requiring parental consent for abortion. The law never went into effect because of legal challenges and was eventually struck down by the California Supreme Court for allegedly violating the state constitution’s “right to privacy.”
