The California Assembly plans to consider an extreme pro-abortion bill Tuesday that pro-life leaders say could legalize infanticide as well as expand abortions.
In an alert Monday, the California Family Council described state Assembly Bill 2223 as the “most extreme anti-life bill California has ever seen,” and warned that the state legislature is advancing it quickly. The state Assembly Judiciary Committee plans to hold a hearing on the legislation Tuesday.
Sponsored by Assemblywoman Buffy Wicks, D-Oakland, the bill would eliminate all civil and criminal penalties for “people’s actual, potential or alleged pregnancy outcomes.”
The bill would not allow authorities to charge a mother for “actions or omissions” related to her pregnancy, “including miscarriage, stillbirth, or abortion, or perinatal death.” Anyone who “aids or assists a pregnant person” also would be exempt from prosecution. Additionally, the bill would allow the woman to sue police and other authorities who arrest or charge her in such cases.
