The following came on June 15 in an email from a California Catholic reader.

Dear Friends,

Please see attached 1-page PDF document which shows the five paragraphs of California Abortion Service regulations that must ALL be REPEALED “not later than July 1, 2014” by AB 980 which was passed by the California Legislature and was signed on October 9, 2013 by Governor Jerry Brown.

AB 154, which was signed by Governor Jerry Brown on the same day, makes it legal for non-physician midwives, physician assistants, and nurse practitioners to perform abortion in such “primary care clinics” with all the five paragraphs of regulations REPEALED.
