Here are some key points to know:California has no abortion ban, but there are a few restrictions that are related to abortion:Women who are pregnant must be allowed to have the procedure in private and can only have the abortion if they are accompanied by an experienced doctor, and they must be able to travel to and from the hospital within the same day.
If a woman does not meet these requirements, they will be prosecuted for a misdemeanor.
If a woman has been given an abortion and the fetus has a severe fetal abnormality or a brain abnormality, the fetus will be considered to be a living human being and be treated the same as other living human beings.
A physician must perform an ultrasound and a complete medical history.
The state has no restriction on the use of drugs or surgical techniques in abortion procedures.
However, doctors may still administer anesthesia if it is necessary for the procedure to be performed.
The doctor may also use other means to help the procedure, including intravenous fluids, or a defibrillator.
Doctors can also provide counseling to women who are considering abortion, but they must do so in a confidential setting.
If counseling is conducted, it must be done in the privacy of a private clinic.
Abortion is not allowed if a woman becomes pregnant while under a physician’s care, unless the pregnancy is the result of rape or incest.
Abortions can be performed at any time, and women must have an attorney present during the procedure.
Aborting a fetus in the state is a crime, but not all abortion providers will violate the law, and it is still possible to obtain an abortion in the county where the procedure is performed.
Aborted fetuses can be disposed of at the nearest hospital, but if the abortion is done at a clinic or facility, the fetal remains must be buried in the local cemetery.
Aborts are not covered by Medicare or Medicaid, but some women may be eligible for government assistance to cover the cost of cremation services.
In order to qualify for government financial assistance, women must meet certain requirements, including paying for an abortion, completing the required medical exams, and paying for funeral expenses.
In some cases, the financial assistance may be available if the woman obtains insurance coverage.
The Department of Finance will not issue loans or grants for abortions, and the Department of Public Health and Environment will not offer abortions on private property.
The department will also not provide abortion referrals to the general public.
