Below is important information by California Together – NOPROP1 – that there is a World of Difference between what the author of Prop 1 claims and the California law.
“The author of Prop 1 claims “It is consistent with current California law.” – But that’s not true.
Current California law says: “The state may not deny or interfere with a woman’s right to choose or obtain an abortion prior to viability of the fetus, or when the abortion is necessary to protect the life or health of the woman.”
And that’s the difference.
California law limits late-term abortions after “viability” (when the baby can survive outside the womb) unless medically necessary to protect the mother.
Prop 1 has no limits on abortion. It allows abortion for any reason, at any time up to the moment of birth, even if the baby is healthy and the mother is in no danger.
And VOTE NO on Proposition 1!
