The following comes from an August 26 story on Capitol Alert.
Assembly Bill 154 expands the types of medical providers that can offer abortions by allowing nurse practitioners, certified nurse-midwives and physician assistants to perform the procedure during the first trimester of pregnancy.
The bill by Assemblywoman Toni Atkins, D-San Diego, cleared the Senate on a vote of 25-11. Supporters, all Democrats, argued that the policy is necessary because remote parts of California do not have many doctors, requiring women who seek an abortion to travel for hours.
“The growing shortage of abortion providers creates a significant barrier for women,” said Sen. Hannah-Beth Jackson, D-Santa Barbara.
Opponents, mostly Republicans, said the proposal puts women at risk.
“It is a leveling down of health care for women,” said Sen. Jim Nielsen, R-Gerber. “The individuals here do not have the training, do not have the experience…. that doctors do.”
AB 154 now heads back to the Assembly for a vote on Senate amendments before heading to Gov. Jerry Brown.

PLEASE CALL THE GOVERNOR’S OFFICE AND URGE HIM TO ‘VETO’
(916) 445 – 2841
PLEASE SPEAK UP FOR THE BABIES. LET HIS PHONES RING OFF THE HOOK!!!!!!!
Our “bishops” in backing demonstrations at pro-life, pro-family Republican Elected Officials Offices are clearly showing where they really stand on the issue of the murdered unborn by mostly Demoncrats and some Republicrats.
How can they expect anyone to believe that they are really oppose to the murders of the unborn when they indirectly are working for the elections and re-elections of those who support the killing of these innocents.
The real Church teaches us that God will not be fooled, pray for these errant shepherds, and that the way to Hell is paved with the skulls of bad bishops!!
God bless, yours in Their Hearts,

As the song says, “Smiling faces tell lies.”
I was there and you are so right. All we can do is work as if all depends on us and pray, as all does depend on God.
“Smiling faces sometimes pretend to be your friend. Smiling faces show no traces of the evil that lurks within.”
This bill makes eminent sense. Anyone can kill. You certainly don’t need a medical degree to butcher a baby in the womb. Taxi drivers, bartenders, teachers, gardeners, anyone can do it.
Wait a minute! I thought that one of the justifications for legalizing abortion was to “move it out of the back alley” and to make the procedure “safe” by having LICENSED PHYSICIANS perform it.
So now, the state is permitting non-physicians to perform surgery on patients. How “safe” is this going to be?
Obviously the strategy of dragging these baby-killing “doctors” into the light of day is working. These cowards, who have no problem killing a defenseless baby, just hate it when they are attacked for their despicable profession. They are on the run.
It is now time to do the same thing to these new “practitioners”. Sunlight is the best disinfectant. Drag their names and the locations of their factories into the public square. Perhaps they too will decide that killing children isn’t worth it.
Another bill was passed in July by the CA Senate that reduces the building and health codes required by most medical clinics so that Planned Parenthood can open more clinics under less regulation. The government is gearing up for Jan 1, 2014 when obamacare goes into action. All low income and minorities will be “cared for” at Planned Parenthood clinics…..can you say Population Control?
With all the possible complications, this is insanity. California state government is
irresponsible in every way possible.
You are correct, and who are amongst the most irresponsible, our “bishops” that’s who!
They are indirectly, in the name of illegal immigration, working for the defeat of pro-life, pro-family politicians such as Ed Royce.
The only One who can defeat this EVIL in spite of our so called Shepherds is Our Lady of Guadalupe, and that this why I designed and am having manufactured the banner you see second down from the right on this page. It is my hope and prayer to see that banner at every pro-life event. I don’t expect to see it at many if any Diocesan events, because they have shown THEIR TRUE COLORS, AND THEY ARE RED FOR THE BLOOD OF THE BABIES THEY ARE WILLING TO SEE SACRIFICED ON THE ALTARS OF ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION!
VIVA CRISTO REY!

Party line vote….. all in favor were Democrats…..largest faith group among Democrat Legislators? Catholics. It goes to a Catholic governor for signing. With all those Catholics in place we don’t have anything to worry about, do we? Unfortunately the more Catholics in the Legislature the more pro abort it becomes.
Any way you measure Catholics in polling they come out pro life in their views,,,,but they vote Democrat – the Death Party. Go figure.
“Any way you measure Catholics in polling they come out pro life in their views…”
The polls I have seen have shown that self-described Catholics are either the same or only marginally better than the general public when it comes to their attitudes about abortion. I agree that Catholics who attend Mass at least once a week are in a different category, but they are far from being a majority.
tom, any “Catholic” who cooperates in an abortion is a HERETIC and SCHSIMATIC.
They automatically excommunicate themselves from the Catholic Church.
CCC: ” 2272 Formal cooperation in an abortion constitutes a grave offense. The Church attaches the canonical penalty of excommunication to this crime against human life.
A person who procures a completed abortion incurs excommunication latae sententiae, by the very commission of the offense, and subject to the conditions provided by Canon Law.
The Church does not thereby intend to restrict the scope of mercy. Rather, she makes clear the gravity of the crime committed, the irreparable harm done to the innocent who is put to death, as well as to the parents and the whole of society. ”
CCC: ” 2089 INCREDULITY is the neglect of revealed truth or the willful refusal to assent to it.
HERESY is the obstinate post-baptismal denial of some truth which must be believed with divine and catholic faith, or it is likewise an obstinate doubt concerning the same.
APOSTACY is the total repudiation of the Christian faith;
SCHISM is the refusal of submission to the Roman Pontiff or of communion with the members of the Church subject to him.”
It was obvious that the Democrat legislators had been bought off by the abortion industry. Now we understand why many of the Planned Parenthood abortion shops have been closing. They are planning to move into cheaper quarters, pretending to be just one small part of primary care services, a boutique drop-in center.
This truly exposes the real feelings of abortion providers towards women. Women in distressful situations are merely the means to a larger paycheck for the nursing industry and shame on the doctors who did not work to prevent this.
I say pass it with one caviat: make the legislators and the governor personally and financially liable and responsible for any and all physical and emotional complications resulting from the use of non doctors in the abortion process. Insist that all non doctors carry the maximum liability insurance funded by the abortion industry themselves. After two incidents of harm, shut down any abortion clinic employing these non doctors for five full years. Nothing like putting a little teeth into a bad law is what I say. Since the abortion industry and the legislators who voted for this law are so certain that it is good for women, surely they will agree to be held criminally responsible for the results of this law. Protecting women is my priority and it should be theirs as well.
This is totally insane, we better all pray that it is stopped as soon as possible.
