A.B. 2223

LEGALIZING INFANTICIDE

CALIFORNIA STATE BILL

STANCE: OPPOSE

AUTHORS: Wicks (A)

SUMMARY: A.B. 2223 will make infanticide (the killing of born babies) legal in California. This unprecedented bill states that a person will not be “subject to civil or criminal liability or penalty” based on their actions “with respect to their pregnancy or actual, potential, or alleged pregnancy outcome, including miscarriage, stillbirth, or abortion, or perinatal death.” “Perinatal” can be defined as a number of weeks after birth. A.B. 2223 goes beyond any other pro-abortion bill to completely undermine the value of life and legalize murder. Killing born babies is an incomprehensible heinous crime that has no place in California legislation.
