On Abortion: Keep law requiring coroners to investigate stillbirths

Summary by Cal Matters (9/27/22): Gov. Gavin Newsom signed a package of 12 bills, establishing some of the strongest abortion protections in the nation. Collectively, the new laws aim at improving access, ensuring providers and patients cannot be sued or prosecuted, and funding procedures and travel costs for low-income individuals. The most contentious measure abolishes the requirement that coroners investigate stillbirths & prohibits the prosecution of anyone who ends their pregnancy even if the abortion is self-induced or happens outside of the medical system. Protesters & conservative lawmakers claimed the legislation would legalize infanticide, which the sponsor has characterized as "disinformation," adding that Californians will no longer have to fear having their "pregnancy policed by state systems."

Legislative Outcome: Passed Senate 30-9-1 on Aug/29/22; passed Assembly 54-19-7 on Aug/30/22; State Rep. Kevin Kiley voted NO; Signed by Gov. Newsom on Sep/27/22.
