California Gov. Jerry Brown signed into law last weekend a bill extending a program that allows non-physicians perform first-trimester abortions.
Proponents of the law claim it helps provide abortions to women in rural areas who couldn’t otherwise obtain an abortion, while pro-life advocates are upset the state is continuing a program that endangers the lives of both unborn babies and their mothers.
