CWN Editor's Note: If signed by the governor, the legislation would end “requirements such as ambulatory surgical center standards for abortion facilities, a 24-hour waiting period, delivery of informed consent materials, and a transabdominal ultrasound before an abortion. The bill would also [permit] non-physicians such as physician’s assistants, nurse practitioners, and certified-nurse midwives, to commit abortions.”
