Abstract

This article challenges the constitutionality of California’s physician-only abortion restriction under the state constitution and argues that the state has no compelling interest that justifies prohibiting qualified, licensed clinicians from providing first trimester aspiration abortions, by drawing on examples and studies from other states and the results of a major study from UCSF.
