California Advances Perinatal Abortion Bill

Objectivity 3.5 | Credibility 3.8 | Relevance 4.8

California lawmakers advanced AB2223 bill that would not hold people liable for civil or criminal penalties based on their actions or omissions with respect to a perinatal death. Perinatal is not defined in the bill, but according to legislative analysis, it usually includes up to seven days after birth. Anti-abortion advocates claim the bill would let people kill children in the first seven days after birth and face no consequences.
