Governor Davis Signs Women's Health, Reproductive Rights Legislation (What would Arnold Do?)
Governor Davis Press Release | 10/02/2003

OFFICE OF THE GOVERNOR

L03: 169
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

GOVERNOR DAVIS SIGNS WOMEN'S HEALTH, REPRODUCTIVE RIGHTS LEGISLATION 10/02/2003

SACRAMENTO

Governor Gray Davis signed a package of women's health care bills that continues California's role as a champion of women's rights.

"I have signed legislation that increases a woman's protection against hate crimes, allows them the right of free choice and provides them with more rights in domestic violence cases," Gov. Davis said. "I am proud that the legislation I am announcing today keeps California on the forefront of women's rights issue."

SB 490 by Senator Dede Alpert (D-San Diego) authorizes a licensed pharmacist to furnish emergency contraception to women in accordance with standardized procedures and protocols developed by the Board of Pharmacy and the Medical Board of California, in consultation with specified entities. Under current law, physicians are citing liability concerns when declining to establish a protocol with individual pharmacists. SB 490 provides a second process which allows pharmacists to furnish emergency contraception under a statewide protocol developed by the two relevant state boards.

"Emergency contraception should be available to any woman who needs it, whenever she needs it," said Sen. Alpert. "That's why I authored SB 490-to ensure that emergency contraception would be available to women across California, including those who live in rural areas, and that any pharmacist on duty could dispense it."

SB 545 by Senator Jackie Speier (D-Hillsborough) prohibits licensed pharmacists from charging patients a separate administrative fee of more than $10 for initiating emergency contraception (EC) therapy. Pharmacists are still free to negotiate reimbursements from insurers.

In addition, this bill:

  • Replaces the existing EC training requirements for pharmacists with a requirement for at least one hour of approved continuing education;
  • Requires a pharmacist to disclose the total retail price for EC therapy;
  • Prohibits a pharmacist from requiring a patient to provide individually identifiable medical information that is isn't necessary to initiate EC therapy.

AB 663 by Assemblymember Sally Lieber (D-Mountain View) prohibits a physician, surgeon or a student undertaking a course of professional instruction at a clinical training program from performing a pelvic examination on an anesthetized or unconscious female patient unless the patient has consented to the examination. This bill would allow for a pelvic examination when it is within the scope of care for a surgery or a diagnostic examination to be performed or when necessary for diagnostic purposes on an unconscious patient.

"This is an important measure to give women confidence and protection in our healthcare," said Assem. Lieber.

AB 996 by Assemblymember Patricia Wiggins (D-Santa Rosa) extends to reproductive health services facilities an existing prohibition on insurers from canceling or refusing to renew a property insurance policy due to claims arising from specified hate crimes. The bill also prohibits an insurer from imposing an excessive or unfairly discriminatory property insurance premium because a facility has been the victim of a hate crime.

SB 71 by Senator Sheila Kuehl (D-Santa Monica) provide school districts with clearer definitions, requirements and guidelines ensures that California students receive accurate and factual information about abstinence, human sexuality, contraception, pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases. SB 71 establishes the California Comprehensive Sexual Health and HIV/AIDS Prevention Education Act. It would repeal, amend, expand, consolidate and renumber various code sections of existing law governing instruction in public schools on HIV/AIDS prevention and sexual health education.

"School districts, parents, teachers and students will now have a greater opportunity to understand and follow the law regarding HIV/AIDS and sex education instruction," Sen. Kuehl said. "Parents will continue to have the right to decide to teach their children about sexuality or disease prevention, but they'll also have the right to know that their school districts are teaching scientifically accurate and comprehensive information about these topics."

AB 561 by Assemblymember Sally Lieber (D-Mountain View) codifies within the Office of Family Planning in the Department of Health Services the Male Involvement Program, the Community Challenge Grant Program, the TeenSMART Program and the Information and Education Program as part of the existing teen pregnancy programs.

Chant the mantra everyone. This election is not about social issues, there's nothing the governor can do about abortion. Look the other way.

But seriously folks, ask your self how Arnold is going to deal with these bills because they aren't going to stop. In fact this is all the Democrats are going to send him for the first year or so.

The fact that Davis is hurrying to sign these bills indicates the author's aren't comfortable letting them wait until next week.

He's not hurrying. He signs them all the time. I post these press releases every two or three months during legislative session.

Likewise, Arnold will get a steady stream of them. I'm just wondering how he's going to handle them

You ask what Arnold would do?

It is obvious to Davis that Arnold will succeed him.

So if you assume Arnold would do the same thing as Davis, then why did Davis sign it now?

So the same day the LA Times drops it's "Arnold the Groper" story, Davis signs legislation showing that he is a "champion of women's rights." Give me a friggin' break. I crawl across broken glass to get rid Davis once and for all--and I live on the East Coast.

On the same day that Arnold is attacked as a women's worst nightmare, Davis signs a bill where he's trying to act like thier champion.

Amazing coincidental timing... NOT!

I'm sure Davis wants to gin up support among the femi-nazis and remind them how fond he is of baby-killing and the rest of their grisly agenda. Davis probably doesn't actually care either way except as far as it helps him.

My question is valid. The femi-nazis, like all good liberals are going to continue pushing the envelope and creep their agenda forward an inch at a time. Arnold can be complicit in this or he can stop it. Based on what he has said, what's he going to do? It's something to think about. I already know what Tom McClintock would do.

Asking WWAD is a fair question, and I look forward to an answer.

My guess is that Schwarzenegger won't like the price control on the "morning after pill," but who knows?

Of course you do, you're a close personal friend of his.

Does everyone here know that, BTW? In the interest of full disclosure?

The femi-nazis

The feminazis despise him, have since Day One, because he is a REPUBLICAN... he is not going to be catering to them because they have never supported him to begin with. Code Pink has been protesting him quite visibly, as I'm sure you know.

So much for the myth that the governor has no influence on the abortion issue! Ahh-nold would sign it - he's for killing babies too! Ahh-nold would also sign all the gay marriage bills signed by Davis. There isn't a dime's worth of difference between Ahh-nold and Davis. But that big bold "R" after his name makes it all okay!!! (spit)

My point was exactly what I said it was.... full disclosure. You are not an unbiased Freeper when it comes to Tom McClintock... therefore, also Arnold Schwarzenegger.

I didn't say I was his brother. I said I was his friend. Why am I his friend? Because I met him as a grassroots activist when he was an Assemblyman representing the West Valley. I realized then that he is the ideal conservative and I knew he had a bright future. Our paths have crossed professionally many times over the years and we agree on public policy issues.

Also for the record, when this race began it wasn't a Tom or nothing position for me. I was torn between two fine conservative men.

As for Arnold I would oppose him if my worst enemies were running against him. Not because of any personal allegiances, but because he is an offensive LIBERAL. I have supported conservative jerks over liberal nice people many times. I even have some liberal friends who I would oppose if they ever ran for political office.

Your argument that the arguments of friends of a candidate should be discounted doesn't hold water outside of a gradeschool playground. Grow up.

I either read it on an on-line newssite - or I heard it on conservative talk radio. What's the difference anyway? 4 months or 9 months? Same thing to me. Arnie is a LIBERAL! Period. End of story.

I don't have to prove it. Make me. I heard it in a public news forum. And one thing is certain: There IS NO MORAL difference between favoring abortions at 4 months or at 9 months. So regardless, Arnold is for baby killing.

I don't have to prove it - I heard it on the radio or read it on-line. I don't have to prove squat. I am reporting what I heard. I don't remember the source and that's the truth - I don't give a flip what you think about me - who are you? Some arniebot on-line. Take a flying leap off short one. Your indignation is laughable. Why don't you ask him if you doubt???? Why don't you ask one of those PROSTITUTE conservatives who sell their moral values for a dubious victory!

Hey pinhead, there IS NO MORAL DIFFERENCE between 9 month abortion and a 4 month abortion. So, regardless of whether it's true, Arnie is still an advocate for baby killing. Deal with it - your candidate is a liberal. Let me say it again louder: AHH-NOLD IS A LIBERAL.
