CitizenLink on California Considering Allowing Non-Physicians to Perform Abortions
CitizenLink quoted Daniel McConchie of AUL in a story this past Friday:
On Monday, a California Senate committee will vote on a bill seeking to allow midwives, physician assistants and nurse practitioners to perform abortions — and life advocates say this weekend is the best window of opportunity to stifle the effort.
SB 1338, sponsored by Sen. Christine Kehoe of San Diego, will be coming up for a vote at 1:30 p.m. PDT in the Business, Professions and Economic Development Committee.
California is “the first state that we know of that’s ever looking at rescinding and actually decreasing the standard of care that women would be getting if they go into an abortion clinic,” said Daniel McConchie, vice president of government affairs at Americans United for Life.
