SACRAMENTO, California (LifeSiteNews) — A proposed amendment to California’s state constitution would enshrine the abortion up to the moment of birth as a “fundamental right” in the Golden State.

Senate Constitutional Amendment (SCA) 10 was passed by the State Assembly in a 58-16 vote in late June, just days after the U.S. Supreme Court returned the right to regulate abortion back to the states by overturning Roe v. Wade.

The proposed amendment would exceed existing California law under the Reproductive Privacy Act, which protects “a person’s right to choose or obtain an abortion before viability of the fetus.”

The new proposal would enshrine unlimited abortion access in the state constitution by declaring that “[t]he state shall not deny or interfere with an individual’s reproductive freedom in their most intimate decisions, which includes their fundamental right to choose to have an abortion and their fundamental right to choose or refuse contraceptives,” regardless of an unborn child’s stage of development.

Jonathan Keller, president of the California Family Council, said in a press statement that “SCA 10 is extreme, even for a state like California.”

“Many people who identify as pro-choice still reject the idea of abortions ending the lives of viable children late in pregnancy,” Keller pointed out.

The Daily Wire noted that the proposal isn’t contingent on a signature from California’s Democrat Gov. Gavin Newsom, though the radically pro-abortion governor is in favor of it.

California voters will decide whether or not to approve the amendment when it lands on the ballot in November.

Meanwhile, SCA 10 isn’t the only radical pro-abortion measure proposed in the Golden State in the months and weeks before and after the U.S. Supreme Court reversed Roe v. Wade.

Shortly after the landmark Supreme Court decision, Gov. Newsom signed onto a multi-state pact with the Democrat governors of Oregon and Washington to ensure women can still kill their unborn babies on the West Coast of the United States even as pro-life states throughout the country enact legislative protections for the unborn.

Ahead of the Supreme Court ruling, Newsom had also introduced a $125 million package and signed a legislative package to bolster abortion access in the Golden State. The pro-abortion governor additionally made it free to kill unborn babies in California by eliminating copays for abortion.

Earlier this year, Democrat lawmakers advanced a bill to legalize abortion throughout all nine months of pregnancy. Critics worried the legislation, AB 2223, would even legalize killing a child after birth, since an earlier draft of the bill stated that no woman could be prosecuted “based on their actions or omissions with respect to their pregnancy or actual, potential, or alleged pregnancy outcome, including miscarriage, stillbirth, or abortion, or perinatal death.”

Opponents of the measure pointed out that “perinatal death” could be interpreted to protect infanticide, since perinatal could mean any time between one week to two full years of age.

Following backlash, the proposal was amended to add “perinatal death due to a pregnancy-related cause,” and then modified again in May to read, “perinatal death due to causes that occurred in utero.”
