California has introduced a bill that would allow nurse practitioners to provide abortion care without the supervision of a physician.

The San Diego senator Toni Atkins, who introduced the bill, said the expansion of nurse practitioners’ roles would address both a looming shortage of healthcare professionals in the state, and help California prepare for a potential influx of patients driven by increasingly stringent abortion laws elsewhere.

The bill SB 1375 was announced on Wednesday, and would ease restrictions that were set in place by a 2013 law, which allowed nurse practitioners, certified midwives and physician assistants to carry out abortions as long as they were under the supervision of a physician and completed a certain set of requirements in their training. Under the new bill, nurse practitioners’ who obtain a minimum number of hours and clinical experience could perform the procedure unsupervised.

Atkins said the goal is to increase the number of healthcare workers in California who can perform abortions ahead of a potential supreme court ruling this summer that could overturn Roe v Wade, allowing states to ban or severely restrict the procedure.

Ha! This does not surprise me in the least! California officials seem to be walking around with their heads firmly entrenched in their behinds! They have no clue as to the TIDAL WAVE OF IDIOCY they are showing the world.
For example: it says a nurse practitioner or even a nurse can perform abortions as long as they are under the supervision of a doctor. So what happens if a doctor is in one room doing an abortion and a nurse is in another room doing an abortion? The doctor will not be watching or supervising the nurse’s actions —and here is where MANY INNOCENT FEMALES CAN BECOME STERILE OR HURT FOR THE REST OF THEIR LIVES, INCLUDING “BLEEDING 🩸🩸OUT AND DYING”!

Any intelligent female would know quickly that California HAS BECOME A KILLING FIELD NOT ONLY FOR INNOCENT BABY SOULS, BUT ALSO FOR UNKNOWING NAIVE FEMALES SEEKING ABORTIONS! If you go to Calif for an abortion, YOU MAY END UP DEAD OR PERMANENTLY DISABLED — their abortion fields now have huge holes in them where any female can disappear or get trapped! BE SMARTER THAN THEM LADIES!

ACTUALLY, CALIFORNIA HAS NOW BECOME THE “POSTER STATE” FOR NEVER GETTING AN ABORTION BECAUSE THAT MIGHT BE THE VERY LAST THING YOU DO IN YOUR LIFE!!!!

HOW CAN ANYONE STAND UP FOR PEOPLE WHO MURDER UNBORN BABIES? How can any nurse or dr stand to watch unborn babies have their little arms/ legs yanked from their bodies? How can they call themselves drs/nurses? They take an oath to SAVE LIVES – NOT DISMEMBER THEM!!!
