Abortion by Inexperienced Clinicians Now Legal in California

'We can't expect a non-physician to learn a procedure in a week or two that takes 4 years for a doctor to learn.'

Abortions are becoming easier for women to receive and places like Planned Parenthood to administer, as California becomes the fifth state to allow clinicians - physicians assistants, nurse practitioners, and nurse midwives - to perform first trimester abortions. Doctors are worried, warning that this allows an abortion to be performed after only one to two weeks of training.
