AB 2223: Newsom’s Abortion Council Opens the Door to Infanticide

Under AB 2223, Californians would be able to KILL their babies—up to a year old!  In the civilized world that is called murder.  The Democrats consider it the start of a new industry for California—we have the entertainment and technology industry, why not the baby killing industry.

No wonder Judge Jackson  asking to be on the Supreme Court, does not know what a women is—I bet she uses the term “birthing person”.

“New language added to AB 2223 last week revealed the disturbing intent. The proposed legislation would shield a mother from civil and criminal charges for any “actions or omissions” related to her pregnancy, “including miscarriage, stillbirth, or abortion, or perinatal death.” Although definitions of “perinatal death” vary, all of them include the demise of newborns seven days or more after birth.

The bill from Assemblywoman Buffy Wicks additionally protects anyone who “aids or assists a pregnant person in exercising” these rights. It also allows a woman to sue any police department or legal authority which arrests or charges her for hurting or killing her child under provisions of the bill.

California legislative Democrats are mentally ill.  Wanting to use the law to kill a six month old—they sue a cop for arresting her for murder.  California is not safe for children or other living things.

AB 2223: Newsom’s Abortion Council Opens the Door to Infanticide

GREG BURT, California Family Council,   3/21/22 

California policymakers who make up the “Future of Abortion Council” just dropped a bombshell. They intend to not only codify the killing of unborn children throughout all nine months of pregnancy but to decriminalize killing newborns days or even weeks after birth. 

New language added to AB 2223 last week revealed the disturbing intent. The proposed legislation would shield a mother from civil and criminal charges for any “actions or omissions” related to her pregnancy, “including miscarriage, stillbirth, or abortion, or perinatal death.” Although definitions of “perinatal death” vary, all of them include the demise of newborns seven days or more after birth.

The bill from Assemblywoman Buffy Wicks additionally protects anyone who “aids or assists a pregnant person in exercising” these rights. It also allows a woman to sue any police department or legal authority which arrests or charges her for hurting or killing her child under provisions of the bill.

“For years, pro-life advocates have argued there is no moral difference between ending a child’s life days before birth or days after birth. California’s pro-abortion legislators now seemingly agree,” said Jonathan Keller, President of California Family Council. “A political culture that justifies killing millions of children in the womb is now declaring open season on unwanted newborns. Every Californian must oppose this heinous bill.”

Governor Newsom formed the “Future of Abortion Council” last year in an effort to turn California into a “sanctuary state” for the procedure. Organizers listed AB 2223 as part of their legislation package implementing a 45-point plan to “expand and protect access” to abortion in California. 

A few weeks ago, Maryland introduced a bill that “decriminalizes neglecting newborns to death” using the same “perinatal death” language, though the bill hearing was canceled. In 2019, Virginia Governor Ralph Northam was widely condemned for a radio interview asserting doctors could decide to allow children to die after birth “if that’s what the mother and the family desired.”

The first stop for AB 2223 is the Assembly Judiciary Committee, though legislators have yet to announce a hearing date.

The following legal experts, all based in California, asserted that AB 2223 would essentially legalize infanticide:

AB 2223 is not only a pro-abortion bill – it removes all civil and criminal penalties for killing babies born alive under any circumstances. The bill expressly authorizes any person to facilitate late-term abortions and infanticide without legal repercussions. Life Legal condemns the use of euphemisms like “personal reproductive decisions” and ‘reproductive justice’ to justify and encourage the killing of babies in and outside the womb.

Attorney and Chief Executive Officer Alexandra Snyder of the Life Legal Defense Foundation

California lawmakers have crossed a red line by seeking to legitimize the killing of hours-old and even week-old infants. This is not about expanding abortion rights; this is a degree of evil that the overwhelming majority of Americans, regardless of how they identify politically, cannot stomach. We will be working to defeat this insane and diabolical bill.

Attorney Matthew McReynolds with the Pacific Justice Institute

AB 2223 seeks to legalize the killing of babies in California after birth. Depending on how the term “perinatal” is interpreted by the courts, this bill legalizes the infanticide of children several weeks after their birth and possibly as late as their first birthday. If this barbaric bill is enacted, there will be no criminal or civil liability for the mother or those who assist her with killing her baby post-birth.

Attorney and President of the National Center for Law and Policy Dean Broyles

Under the guise of “reproductive health,” this bill seeks to decriminalize killing babies not only in the womb, but also even after the baby is born. This is the most extreme, anti-life bill in California’s history. It legalizes infanticide, plain and simple.

Attorney Nada Higuera with Tyler & Bursch, LLP

In California under AB 2223, former Philadelphia abortionist Kermit Gosnell, who murdered three infants born alive after botched abortions, could not be prosecuted. And incredibly, someone like Gosnell who helped a California mother kill her newborn after birth will actually have a cause of action to sue police for investigating the matter if AB 2223 becomes law.

    Good God almighty!! Talk about evil incarnate…just seccede from from the civilized world, California.







  3. Pure Evil. It never ends well for the nations involved in this practice of horrific “Child Sacrifice” – and it’s not a sacrifice to G-d. The opposite. Course we have a lot of folks in the “GOP” that want it – when I went on to the SF GOP, their “gatekeeper” somehow knew I had a faith, then asked out of the blue “Do you approve of abortion?” Clearly very bad people were involved in destroying good people with any faith or standards of any kind to run the GOP here. The long slide down into oblivion continues – and they STILL won’t turn back – a “stiff necked people”. Nothing good will come of this – in fact, much worse is around the corner..

    Why in the world would anyone want to go visit an unsafe place where “anything goes???” Much less live and work in it?! It does not work, and it surely shows who these people worship. Whether they believe there is a G-d or not.

    • I’ve been thinking it’s time for a Flood. Anyone got the plans for building an Ark? Reminds me of Bill Cosby’s Noah sketch – “Right. What’s a cubit?” Humans are in deep trouble.

  4. Karl Machschefes says

    Perinatal’s definition is up to 28 days AFTER birth! Think of that and think of the time the Greeks, thousands of years ago would leave new horns to die on the steps on temples, usually girls.

    INFANTICIDE is how you spell it!

  5. John Cunningham says

    For comparison – killing newborn animals – puppies, kittens, and the like, is considered Felony Animal Abuse that can land a person in prison for up to 3 years.

  6. This is so sad. And Newsome will sign anything the Legislature puts in front of him. Evil.

  7. I think Gosnell would still be prosecuted because he did it on his own, not helping the mom do it. But that still lets moms kill newborns for a week. The use of perinatal in addition to stillbirth means it’s intended to mean neonatal specifically. Otherwise it adds nothing to the statute. Whoever inserted that word is a demon in human form. And I’m Jewish (we’re not so into demons).

    I think they should wait for a more expansive bill that allows killing children up until five when they’re old enough to secretly become trans without their parents knowing.

  8. Not at all surprising. democrats are the hands of evil. Its who they are.

  10. a chirino says

    This is beyond disgusting Elaine……it´s pure evil.

  11. One day soon they will have to stand before God and give account for what they’ve done in this life. Killing babies is the most evil thing, of course Evil California would go along with this evil on the most valuable. Back in Babylon they killed their children and God destroyed them. It doesn’t matter if you believe in God or not. He is real and he’s truth and your unbelieve doesn’t change that. This is satanic evil.

  12. The radical left has destroyed the cities they run by making life easier for criminals and promoting drug use, among other things. They see the burning, rioting, looting and murder of the last two years as some sort of social justice protest but see the January 6th incident as “insurrection,” ignoring the dictionary definition of the term. They have injected sexual materials and other sexual content into childrens’ classrooms as well as promulgated efforts to keep such horrors from parents. They seek to label parents who object as “domestic terrorists.” They refer to legislation seeking to prevent these horrors and provide open school access to parents as “Don’t Say Gay,” an obvious lie to anyone who reads the legislation. They want open borders and many other things mainstream Americans don’t believe in. Many people are fleeing blue areas and turning away from the radical left. All that has certainly cost the left a lot of support, tax revenue and Congressional seats. But a bill to allow the MURDER of live children after birth? My god. How could anyone in their right mind support such a thing? The question answers itself. This kind of extreme radical madness should close the door on the radical left to any person of conscience. I am waiting to see some rational, common sense explanations that support such a measure. HINT: There aren’t any.

  13. I forgot to mention one thing. The U.S. Constitution guarantees “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.” The Due Process Clause of the 14th Amendment prohibits the taking of a human life without Due Process. The bill seeks to remove this prohibition from the murder of infants. That makes it unconstitutional on its face. It denies the right to life just as any murder under “normal” circumstances would. Murder is always murder.

  14. pansy walker says

    The citizens of our country are closely watching the actions of your committee on the house bill to allow infanticide up to 4 weeks post birth, “perinatal”. This bill also negates investigation of all parties involved in the murder of a human being. This is called infanticide, the actions of a barbaric nation rather than a civilized one.

    I pray that God will touch the depths of your heart, and those of your compatriots, to understand that this a battle is for soul of this nation. Taxpayer funded infanticide is moral and spiritual suicide.

  15. The “culture of death” is upon us in a multitude of forms. Here are a few of them:

    Around the world the impact of COVID-19 has been felt most among the elderly. Indeed, Americans witnessed a total disregard in California, New York and elsewhere for the safety of nursing home residents. Governors imposed policies that favored outbreaks, resulting in untold numbers of “excess deaths”. (Anyone who works in a nursing home will tell you communal settings make infectious disease control difficult.) It was not a case of “misguided” nursing home COVID-19 policies but murderous ones.

    Bringing to market a novel vaccine technology while simultaneously jettisoning a 10+ year process of developing time-tested conventional vaccines also qualifies as intentionally reckless. The public was assured that vaccines would be opt-in only to be forced to lose their jobs for failure to comply with mandates, which have been imposed all over the world despite the fact that mRNA use in previous vaccine development efforts resulted in delayed impacts such as increasing the risk of serious subsequent re-infection and death among laboratory animals. Surprise, surprise: Now we hear out of the UK that those who have suffered COVID-19 in the past are at an INCREASED risk of contracting Omicron. This flies in the face of immunology as we once knew it. Sure we are prone to colds or flu on a seasonal basis — but not the same virus over and over again in the same year! Why is COVID-19 unique in this regard? Could it be because it is the product of laboratory research vs. nature? The fact that there are level 4 research labs all over the world engaged in gain-of-function and not one government has had a serious discussion about reigning in the risks associated with accidents, which are all but inevitable, speaks volumes about the value of life in the 21st Century!

    How many people died in massive California wildfires over the past 10 years despite ample time to clear dead trees out of the forests as they have been under attack by bark beetles for years thanks to drought? How many warnings did the utility companies get about poorly maintained infrastructure before and after the town of Paradise burned up? The lack of attention to public safety is itself yet another manifestation of the culture of death.

    Most of us grew up hearing that the FDA was among the most conservative agencies in the world. When other countries brought new medical products and drugs to market, FDA took their time. Now, however, we are living in a world in which our regulatory agencies are captured by wealthy corporations to the point where the FDA/CDC shamelessly recommended COVID-19 vaccines to children and young adults with a statistically higher risk of myocarditis tied to vaccination than serious illness tied to COVID-19!

    The culture of death also fronts as criminal justice reform. George Soros has poured vast sums of money into district attorney campaigns all over the country to further reforms in which violent criminals — not just low-level drug offenders — are given reduced sentencing and/or sweetheart deals to the point where crime victims’ families are not notified and therefore have no advocate when incarcerated individuals come up for parole. What is this if not colluding with criminals to make our streets less safe. Does anyone doubt, for example, that we will learn that the shooter in Sacramento had a long rap sheet but because of COVID-19 and now “equity” we have to let everyone out of jail based on the nature of their skin vs. the nature of their crimes? What is this if not an intentional effort by State and federal leadership to create fear, animosity and most perversely of all more, not less, racism? And now for the cherry on the top: In a State that has long recognized abortion rights, somehow we have to “solve” the problem of too few abortions (apparently!) by expanding the definition of abortion to include infanticide?

    In total, these trends can be summed up as a complete disrespect for human life. So the question becomes “Why are our leaders, especially on the left, playing fast and loose with human life?” They aren’t even working particularly hard to hide their anti-infant, anti-child (Disney corporation, anyone?) and ageist (little effort to focus on early treatments for COVID-19) policies anymore!

    The missing element in this picture is CLIMATE CHANGE. We were wrong to understand climate change chiefly as an environmental problem. It is every bit as much a psychological ailment, which for all its legitimacy in “science” holds a particular appeal to sociopaths. Antisocial personalities, thanks to global warming, have license to play fast and loose with human life because they are “saving the planet” . Saving the planet comes with any number of cover stories from criminal justice reform to post-birth abortion, all of which hold in common the simple fact that MORE PEOPLE WILL DIE.

    Do not be surprised as we continue to wage war on climate change any number of inexplicable “leadership” proposals. For example, why not take red lights away from traffic stops in rural areas because less pollution will be emitted into the atmosphere if fewer drivers have to waste their time sitting at stoplights. Never mind that more people will be in traffic collisions and die or that automobile insurance rates might climb so high that such idiocy effectively takes more cars off the road. All of this would be considered a “win” in the asymmetrical battle against climate emergency! Trust me when I say: Do not put ANYTHING past climate activists in government. Many federal and local leaders are deadly serious about cutting emissions. Ultimately that translates to culling not just cows on account of their excess C02 emissions — lest we forget the World Economic Forum “predicts” we will be on a plant-based diet by 2030. What’s more, President Biden, in a recent “gaffe”, recently blurted out “We will allow farmers to decide when to get rid of their cows”. Make no mistake: Culling the human herd through a combination of bass-ackwards public health policies and disastrous federal and State leadership decisions on crime and any number of other fronts — like prohibiting California farmers from watering their crops even as California’s golf courses remain green — is the new norm adopted by the Death Cultists.

    The common denominator between these seemingly unrelated trends are higher rates of death. Indeed, the life insurance industry has already begun to record unprecedented rates of non-COVID-19 death claims attributed to excess “all cause mortality”. Good people have one shortcoming and that is our inability to wrap our minds around the existence of evil. But that evil is all too apparent if we take a good look around. There are no accidents — only people naive enough to disbelieve their own eyes and ears.

  16. Larry Robinson says

    will you PLEASE CALL THESE cold-blooded killers in Sacramento it seems nobody will really do anything to try to prevent this just talk and complaining in blogs does nothing, call your rep TODAY

  17. Everyone commenting on this article is insane.

    This isn’t legalizing child murder wtf

    It’s decriminalizing choice. Quit with the insane conspiracy theory stuff. Infanticide is very much still a felony in California.

  18. This is child sacrifice. Our country and world has been run by Satan worshippers. No joke. Do your research.

  19. Sally Aversa says

    Father God I pray that you will not allow this bill to be passed in the name above all names, Jesus Christ our Lord.
    He said whatever we bind on earth is bound in heaven and whatever we lose on earth is loosed in heaven. Therefore I bind this law from being passed and I loose laws protecting babies in and outside of the womb to be formatted and passed in California, in Jesus name. Amen

  20. Betty Pratt says

    Everyone on here please call Assemblywoman Buffy Wicks offices and ask them to withdraw AB2223
    because you are firmly against it.
    Capitol office 916-319-2015
    District office 510-286-1400

    This is what we CAN do…please!
