Posted on 09/04/2012 6:55:09 PM PDT by Clintonfatigued
The California Senate voted last week to pass a bill allowing non-physicians to perform aspiration abortions. Senate Bill 623, introduced by Christine Kehoe (D-San Diego), extends a program run by the University of California, San Francisco, in which nurse practitioners, midwives and physicians assistants are trained to perform abortions.
"This bill was originally created to regulate boat paint," said Dana Cody, Executive Director of the Life Legal Defense Foundation. "Now it's regulating and destroying human lives."
Ms. Kehoe claimed that the bill was necessary to fill gaps in the availability of abortion caused by the shortage of doctors in parts of the state.

Of course, these are all for the seldom act of rape and or incest (sarc).
Wow, first the state drives doctors out of state with their horrible tort system, then they give non-doctors the right to do abortions by amending a bill to regulate boat paint. Truth really is stranger than fiction.
California lawyers are making down payments on private islands and recreational jet aircraft.
i smell lawsuits in the air!
Coat hangers soon to be approved as tools of the trade.
Gotta do what ya gotta do so they can keep killin’ those babies.
When they say NO limits on abortion, they are now legalizing the back alley abortion.
Soon doctors will be required to perform abortions.
They are already required to learn them in medical school I think
You beat me too it. Soon they will be sold as home abortion kits.
I have a coat hanger and a vacuum cleaner. Maybe I should go to California and go in business.
Plug and Play, Do it yourself- it’s legal!
We wouldn’t want anyone to be punished with a baby.
Veterinarian schools have been more selective than Medical Schools, largely because of specious malpractice suits. Doctors who specialize in abortions are probably the dregs of the profession anyway. Nurse practitioners, and physicians assistants might be an improvement.
Why, if abortion is all about a womans right to choose what she does with her body, is it not all right for a woman to choose to allow a man access to her body for money ?
If she can kill her baby shouldn’t she also have “the right” to be able to charge a man (or woman for that matter) an “access fee” to have sex with her ?
Somebody who is heard should ask some of the pro-choice people this question.
I wonder if Californian legislators know how many of those babies would have grown up to be Democrats ?
Only the first step. The SEIU will lobby to expand this to include unionized child care professionals, high school science teachers, pharmacy clerks, CNAs, etc. As long as they are unionized, dues paid up, and take the two hour Coat Hanger and Vacuum Cleaner abortion-is-easy course, I’m sure that they will be practicing soon....hey, that’s why there are publicly financed hospital emergency rooms in the first place.
Fine with me, I think the Physician does not need to be involved in unethical behavior. If the Medical Profession had not been taken over by liberals and PC mentality we would still have a hippocratic oath that forbid abortion. But, also the leaders in the AMA changed our oath and now they are hypocrites. They state it is unethical for a physician to be present at a murderers execution but perfectly ethical to perform abortions with the same hands that deliver babies. Had Physicians stood up an said NO we would not be in the situation we are today. As a physician my profession is shameful.
They left out mechanics and carpenters? What about the SEIU? All those people are good at snuffing out hope!
I can see the signs - “Have Coat Hanger - Will Travel”.
California kooks out, again.
Yeah, this will go well.
Not surprising, since so many doctors refuse to do them.
