SB 1501




LOCAL LEGISLATORS CLASH ON ABORTION ACCESS BILL

February 27, 2012 (San Diego) – Over half of California counties currently have no abortion provider.  To remedy the situation, Senator Christine Kehoe (D-San Diego) has introduced SB 1501, a bill which would allow trained nurse practitioners, certified nurse midwives and physician assistants to provide early-term abortions.

“SB 1501 will ensure that all women have access to providers they know and trust in the communities where they live,” Senator Kehoe said.

But the measure has drawn criticism from Brian Jones (R-Santee), who denounced the measure as a "moral failing."
