New Law Will Make Birth Control Easier to Access in California

Robin Marty

The governor signs a bill into law that lets more medical professionals dispense birth control.

The state of California is expanding access birth control. Governor Jerry Brown signed Assembly Bill 2348 into law on September 22nd, granting registered nurses, certified nurse-midwives and physicians’ assistants the power to dispense birth control, easing access for those who want to obtain the pill.

Via The L.A. Times:

Brown signed the bill Saturday morning at Planned Parenthood’s Los Angeles headquarters in South Los Angeles and cast the event as a reaffirmation of “every woman’s basic constitutional rights.”

Planned Parenthood Federation of America President Cecile Richards applauded the new law and in a news release said that “by enacting this bill, California is, once again, setting an example of national leadership at a critical time when access to health care is under attack.”
