Blog: I Will Not Be Voting for Bob Blumenfield

Abortion, while not on Nov ballot, exists in proposed or existing laws: to the extent of funding with taxpayer money, deregulation of those allowed to perform this risky procedure, & parental rights.

1. There exists an interesting law within the California Civil Code: Section 43... 

Besides the personal rights mentioned or recognized in the 
Government Code, every person has, subject to the qualifications and 
restrictions provided by law, the right of protection from bodily 
restraint or harm, from personal insult, from defamation, and from 
injury to his personal relations. 

43.1. A child conceived, but not yet born, is deemed an existing 
person, so far as necessary for the child's interests in the event of 
the child's subsequent birth.

2. The Governor signed a continuation of a "trial" program which allows Nurse Practitioner's to perform Abortions in the first tri-mester 
"The scaled-back version that became law extends until January 1, 2014, a controversial pilot project that allows “medical providers” who’ve been trained at Planned Parenthood and Kaiser Permanente clinics under a special program run by the University of California at San Francisco’s Bixby Center to perform these first-trimester abortions"

The ability for a Nurse Practitioner to perform abortions opens the access to 
communities and age groups previously restricted by doctors who would voluntarily choose not to perform an abortion at all or on a minor.

3. No parent has the right to know if their minor daughter is going to have an abortion.

The issue of abortion, while not on the ballot in Nov '12, exists in the laws which are being proposed, voted upon, and enacted; to the extent of extending the long reaching arm of power, control, funding with taxpayer money, and deregulation of the medical community allowed to perform this risky procedure.

There is a SFV State Assembly candidate, running for State Assembly & City Council with a 100% rating by Naral/Planned Parenthood.

I will not be voting for him either time.  As chairman of the California Budget Committee he has too much power to be allowed access to funds to promote abortion at taxpayer cost.

Promoting abortion at taxpayer cost is WAY cheaper than the alternative of taking care of that child for 18 years nobody wanted in the first place. Wake up.

Yikes - tell that to all the men....to all the women....to all the couples willing to adopt.
