AB 1666 (Bauer-Kahan) Would Increase Protections for Abortion Patients & Providers in California

SACRAMENTO—Planned Parenthood Affiliates of California (PPAC) released the following statement from Legislative Director Molly Robson regarding the California Assembly overwhelmingly passing AB 1666 (Bauer-Kahan):

“AB 1666 will allow California providers to continue to provide essential and timely health care, like abortion, with decreased risks of potential liability when helping people forced to seek care here in California rather than in their home state due to hostile, extreme, and dangerous restrictions or outright bans. These precautions and protections are necessary given the increased hostility and frequency of abortion bans in other states seeking to target patients and providers. Taking this action now is crucial as we prepare for the U.S. Supreme Court to overturn Roe v Wade and unleash a flood of hostile bans in more than half the states.”

AB 1666 (Bauer-Kahan) protects patients and providers in California from civil liability judgments for providing reproductive health care to patients when the claims are based on laws in other states that are hostile to abortion rights and are contrary to the public policy of California.

AB 1666 builds on a recommendation put forth by the California Future of Abortion Council recommendations released in a December report, in which Planned Parenthood Affiliates of California is a member of its “Steering Committee.”
