Representative Dr. Linda Halderman Blasts California Proposal to Allow Non-Doctors to Perform Surgical Abortions

California Representative Dr. Linda Halderman

This week California state representative Dr. Linda Halderman blasted Senate Bill 1501 which was introduced by Sen. Christine Kehoe, (D-San Diego). The bill will permit non-doctors such as midwives and physicians assistants to perform surgical termination procedures.  Pro-life representative Dr. Halderman shared her concerns about the bill in an almost 30 minute radio appearance on the Ray Appleton radio program. You can hear the audio here. The Ray Appleton show is one of the most listened to talk programs in central California.

    So much to be said for safe, rare, and legal.  Talk about tossing women under the bus letting other than Dr.s do this is stupid.  Of course non-pros cost less, don’t think they will charge less.=more profits.

    Then again there might be a shortage of real Drs. who are willing to kill for cash.

    What’s next? Are janitors, plumbers and mechanics going to perform abortions?

    I would add (as you did for Sen. Kehoe) that Dr. Halderman is a Republican representing Fresno. Good to know.

    Hello linda nice your laughing face nice to meet you………….

  • A study from UCSF showed that physicians, physicians assistants, nurse practicioners, and certified nurse midwives can perform aspiration techniques safely, and with extremely low complication rates. They can perform colonoscopies, vasectomies, and insemination without being authorized to perform these in statute. Why shouldn’t they also be able to perform abortions?
