If this bill were to pass, it would lead to a mass expansion of abortion in the state of California. Areas where abortions are not currently performed because they lack an abortionist would be able to perform abortions. Many of the Planned Parenthood clinics that do not perform abortions could begin providing abortions on demand without a doctor on site.

Before being allowed to perform abortions, non-doctors would receive training from the Health Workforce Pilot project. Dana Cody, of the Life Legal Defense Foundation has filed a motion concerning this training which, she shares, is already being done.
"We want to see who's involved in the training. We want to see the accounting," she says. "Is this just more money going to clinics? Because they're certainly not doing the training at U.C.; they're giving it to clinics to do the training. Do these clinics have good records? Are they clean? Are they complying with health codes?"

Not only would this be a mass expansion of abortion, SB 1338 will open the doors for further malpractice suits because of inadequate health standards surrounding abortion practices. Are women being considered first and foremost in this decision? I would beg to differ.

We are morally responsible for opposing such deadly and life threatening legislation

      Because SB1338 is bad for women. This isn’t about pro-choice vs. pro-life, this is about common sense and public safety. Those in favor of this bill say that it is necessary to create access to abortion for women in rural counties. However, according to the Alan Guttmacher Institute, 99% of women in California live in a county that has an abortion provider. If a woman lives so far out in the countryside that there is no abortion clinic, how likely is it that she is close enough to get to an ER if she is bleeding to death? Forget back alley abortions, if SB1338 passes, California will have back woods abortions. California women deserve better than to be “guinea pigged” by Planned Parenthood.
