Early-Term Abortion Bill Stalls in Senate Committee
On Thursday, a scaled-back version of Sen. Christine Kehoe's (D-San Diego) bill (SB 1338) to allow a limited number of non-physicians to perform an early-term abortion procedure stalled in the Senate Business, Professions and Economic Development Committee on a 4-4 vote. The bill is set to be reconsidered on May 7.
