Governor Signs Bill To Hide Minor Abortions, Transgender Drugs

(California Family) Governor Newsom is celebrating the signing of two abortion rights bills today, one that requires insurance companies to hide from parents certain medical services their children are receiving. The other prohibits the videotaping of clients and employees of abortion clinics, but fails to protect pro-life sidewalk counselors who videotape their work for their own protection.

AB 1184, sponsored by Planned Parenthood Affiliates of California, prohibits insurance companies from revealing to the policyholder the “sensitive” services of anyone on their policy, including minor children, even though the policy owner is financially responsible for the services. These “sensitive” services include abortions, sexual assault treatment, drug abuse and mental health treatment, cross-sex hormones, puberty blockers, and sex-change operations. In California, minors can consent to all of these sensitive treatments after the age of 12 under certain conditions, and consent to abortions at any age.
