LOS ANGELES (AP) — During a visit to a Los Angeles Planned Parenthood clinic, Gov. Jerry Brown signed a bill that allows nurses to dispense birth control, making it easier for women to get contraceptives.
The Democratic governor was joined Saturday by women’s health advocates who cheered the signing of AB2348.
“At a time when some seek to turn back the clock and restrict women’s health choices, California is expanding access to birth control and reaffirming every woman’s basic Constitutional rights,” Brown said.
