(Anti-abortionists march on Assemblyman’s El Centro office)…..They are not happy with a bill backed by Assemblyman Manuel Perez.
The Bill, AB 154, was authored by Assemblywoman Toni Adkins of San Diego. The bill would allow nurse practitioners, certified midwives and physician assistants to perform first trimester abortions. The 25 protesters carried signs in front of Perez’s local office Tuesday. They said they are against the possibility medical providers could perform abortions in the Imperial Valley. There are currently no abortion clinics in the Valley. The bill has been approved by the senate. It now goes back to the Assembly, before moving on to the Governor for his signature.
