The California Senate’s Economic Development Committee intends to vote Tuesday on SB 1338 which, if passed, would allow midwives, nurses, and physician assistants to perform “suction” abortions.
If this bill were to pass, it would lead to a mass expansion of abortion in the state of California. Areas where abortions are not currently performed because they lack an abortionist would be able to perform abortions. Many of the Planned Parenthood clinics that do not perform abortions could begin providing abortions on demand without a doctor on site.
Before being allowed to perform abortions, non-doctors would receive training from the Health Workforce Pilot project. Dana Cody, of the Life Legal Defense Foundation has filed a motion concerning this training which, she shares, is already being done.
“We want to see who’s involved in the training. We want to see the accounting,” she says. “Is this just more money going to clinics? Because they’re certainly not doing the training at U.C.; they’re giving it to clinics to do the training. Do these clinics have good records? Are they clean? Are they complying with health codes?”
|Midwives to go from delivering
to taking baby’s lives?
Not only would this be a mass expansion of abortion, SB 1338 will open the doors for further malpractice suits because of inadequate health standards surrounding abortion practices. Are women being considered first and foremost in this decision? I would beg to differ.
Please call the Senators on the committee today, it only takes a few minutes, and send them the following message:
“Please vote no on SB 1338. Women deserve better than relegating their medical care to subordinate health care workers.”
