The California Women’s Law Center (CWLC) supports California Senate Bill 464 authored by Senator Hernandez.
SB 464 will allow the use of self-screening tools to identify certain risk factors, including patient blood pressure and weight, so that health care practitioners can safely prescribe or dispense hormonal contraceptives via telehealth services.
Currently, women in rural and underserved communities face fewer choices over their reproductive health because of geographic or monetary barriers that prevent travel to a health care provider. Moreover, about half of all pregnancies in California are unintended, which can lead to poor health outcomes for the mother and her baby and cost the state more than $1.75 billion annually.
