Bonilla Calls Brown’s Veto of Egg Donation Bill ‘Regressive’
Last week, Assembly member Susan Bonilla (D-Concord) criticized Gov. Jerry Brown (D) for vetoing her bill (AB 926) that would have lifted a ban on allowing women across the state to be paid for donating their eggs to research. Bonilla said Brown's reasoning -- that "not everything in life is for sale nor should it be" -- was "regressive" and took "an extremely conservative stance around issues of disclosure and whether women can adequately assess their own risks and sign disclosures for themselves."
