Legislators in California passed a group of over a dozen bills last week as part of a "Reproductive Justice Policy Package" aiming to make the state an abortion sanctuary.

Among other things, the legislation:

  • prevents California law enforcement from cooperating with abortion investigations from other states
  • blocks abortion-related medical information from being shared with other states
  • prohibits a coroner's statements from being used to convict a mother of infanticide
  • allows non-doctors to commit abortions without oversight
  • creates a $20 million fund to pay the abortion costs of women who come to California from other states
Pro-abortion California Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) has until Sept. 30 to sign the bills.
