43 States Ban Nurses From Doing Abortions, California Wants OutSteven Ertelt | Washington, DC | LifeNews.com | 4/19/12 1:48 PM
A bill actively opposoing by pro-life groups in California that would allow non-physicians to do abortions has been put off until next Monday. That means California residents have more time to ask their state legislators to vote against it.
A California Senate committee is expected to vote within the next week on a measure that Americans United for Life president Charmine Yoest says would downgrade standards of care for women undergoing abortions by overturning a California requirement that only qualified doctors perform surgical abortions.
Yoest says the proposed, watered-down legislation would allow midwives, physician assistants and nurse practitioners to perform surgical abortions, a move advocated by the abortion lobby.
