David Chiu and Autumn Burke, Attorney General Kamala Harris, and Religious Leaders and Healthcare Providers Urge Passage of Reproductive FACT Act
(Sacramento, CA) – Alongside women’s healthcare providers and religious leaders, Assemblymembers David Chiu (D – San Francisco) and Autumn R. Burke (D – Inglewood) today urged lawmakers to support AB 775, the Reproductive Freedom, Accountability, Comprehensive Care and Transparency (FACT) Act.
The Reproductive FACT Act requires licensed facilities that provide family planning and pregnancy-related services to inform patients about available assistance for affordable contraception, abortion, and prenatal care, including how to obtain that assistance. Facilities that offer similar services but do not have a medical license must disclose that they are not licensed facilities and do not have a licensed provider on staff. This bill is co-sponsored by Attorney General Kamala Harris, NARAL Pro-Choice California, and Black Women for Wellness.
