Attorneys warn amended California abortion bill could still legalize infanticide – LifeSite

A previous version ended at “perinatal death,” which could be interpreted to protect infanticide, since perinatal could mean any time between one week to two full years of age.

“In my view, this revision lessens, but does not eliminate, the concerns regarding infanticide,” Thomas More Society Special Counsel Charles LiMandri, a partner at LiMandri and Jonna LLP, told LifeSiteNews on Tuesday. “This is because the broad phrase ‘perinatal death’ is still in the Bill, and the new modifying phrase ‘due to a pregnancy-related cause,’ is sufficiently ambiguous.”

“This leaves it open to interpretation and exploitation by abortionists or others intent on ending a newborn infant’s life,” LiMandri said.
