A little over a week ago, Moveon.org produced an ad that claimed the GOP would be sending women to the 'back alley' because of their staunch pro-life platform. Now the California legislature has rammed a bill through the Senate taht would allow abortionists (aka murderers of the unborn) to practice without a doctor's license.
The legislation is now awaiting Governor Jerry Brown's signature for it to become state law.
Senate Bill 623, introduced by Christine Kehoe, D-San Diego, extends a program run by the University of California at San Francisco, in which nurse practitioners, midwives, and doctors’ assistants are trained to perform abortions without any further training in medicine. Kehoe argues the bill is necessary because there aren’t enough doctors performing abortions in California.
The Life Legal Defense Foundation, a Napa-based group that has been calling on the UCSF program to expose its records, notes the revolutionary take on abortion was crammed into an unrelated bill at the end of the legislative session after previous attempts at passage failed.
“This bill was originally created to regulate boat paint,” said LLDF Executive Director Dana Cody. “Now it’s regulating and destroying human lives.”
Earlier this year Sen. Kehoe tried to pass an even broader measure. It was killed in committee.
The program was the subject of pro-life lawyers’ Writ of Mandate demanding disclosure with a public records request for complete information. Lawyers say the public is not being told which abortionists are conductin the training, and whether women are being put at risk by non-doctors performing the invasive surgery.
“There have been numerous attempts to resist records requests, leaving us wondering what they have to hide,” said Katie Short, Legal Director of the Life Legal Defense Foundation.
LLDF has put out a fact sheet that addresses the lower standards that are being pushed for an abortion license.
This move by the California legislature should let women know everywhere that the Democrats do not have your best interest in mind. In the words of California Catholic bishops, “With SB 623, the sponsors and managers of that project will be ‘rewarded’ with more time and more money so they can not only ‘do their homework,’ but also continue training yet more mid-level medical practitioners, who have already performed more than 8,000 abortions."
Just remember, when the unborn's life is not considered precious, it's just a step away from anyone's life being considered precious and in this instance, it's the mother's.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook, Google Plus, & Twitter.
