The first law, which was signed by Gov. Gavin Newsom (D-Calif) in September, is SB 107, which makes California a “sanctuary state” for transgender kids.
It will protect the use of drugs or surgery to provide “gender-affirming care” to kids who travel to California from states that have restricted allowing minors to receive the life-alternating surgery.
Sen. Scott Weiner (D-Calif) said that the bill offers “refuge” to trans minors and their families “if they’re being criminalized in their home states.”
SB 1375 will allow nurses to perform abortions without the help of a medical license doctor, which was passed alongside a referendum guaranteeing the right to abortion and contraception.
Under the new law, nurses will be able to perform the procedure without a doctor supervising in the first trimester of pregnancy.
The third law that goes into effect on the first, is a Covid misinformation law. Signed in September, the law will require medical licensing boards in the state of California to take disciplinary action against doctors who are involved with the “dissemination of misinformation or disinformation related to the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus, or ‘COVID-19’.
