What They’re Watching: Asm. Mia Bonta


Eli Kirshbaum


Asm. Mia Bonta (D – Alameda) is primarily focused on abortion policy, aiming to make California a “sanctuary” for those seeking abortions in light of restrictions on abortion access throughout the country and a potential overturn of Roe v. Wade.

She has a bill in the 13-bill reproductive rights package being forwarded by the Legislative Women’s Caucus. Her legislation protects the medical privacy of out-of-state patients who come to California for abortions by preventing information about their care in California from being used against them in another state.
