The official report of the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee issued in 1983 confirmed this: “‘As a result of the Roe decision, a right to abortion was effectively established for the entire term of pregnancy for virtually any reason, whether for the sake of personal finances, social convenience, or individual lifestyle … Thus, the Committee observes that no significant legal barriers of any kind whatsoever exist today in the United States for a woman to obtain an abortion for any reason during any stage of her pregnancy.’” (Report, Committee on the Judiciary, U.S. Senate, on Senate Joint Resolution 3, 98th Congress, 98-149, June 7, 1983, p. 6)
CALIFORNIA ABORTION LAW — GOVERNMENT FUNDED ABORTION ON DEMAND THROUGHOUT ALL NINE MONTHS OF PREGNANCY
The language of California’s Abortion Statute CA Health and Safety Code Sec. 123468 follows the ruling of Casey in including the life and health exception to authorize abortions on viable babies. This means abortion on demand throughout all nine months, whenever the paid abortionist chooses to do it, as he can apply psychological, emotional and ‘age ‘ considerations in any way he wishes.
The Medi-Cal Provider Manual published by the CA Department of Health Care Services states on page one that abortion is a covered benefit regardless of the gestational age of the fetus, and that medical justification and authorization for abortion are not required.
True to the real meaning of Roe/Doe/Casey, California allows state-funded abortion on demand throughout all nine months of pregnancy.
