Bans law enforcement from arresting those involved with illegal abortion

Another bill, AB 2223, removes the requirement for a state coroner to investigate deaths related to self-induced or criminal abortions. The bill prevents charges or civil action from being brought against those involved in the abortion based on statements made by the coroner in a fetal death certificate. 

"AB-2223 erases the idea of an illegal abortion," Short told CP. 

"It means that if the mother consents or desires her baby to be dead, she should be completely, illegally immune. And anyone who assists her in reaching that outcome of a dead baby, There's no legal repercussion there."

The outreach director said that the bill's language grants legal immunity regardless of the child's age or the type of abortion method used.
