HUMAN LIFE. INITIATIVE CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT. This measure provides that the people of the state would recognize and affirm that the right to life is vested in each human being from the moment of fertilization regardless of age, health, or condition of dependency. Summary of estimate by Legislative Analyst and Director of Finance of fiscal impact on state and local governments: This measure would, assuming key social characteristics do not change, increase state and local government costs by at least $70 million annually for cash grants and medical assistance costs. While the measure would eliminate the approximately $38 million spent annually on therapeutic abortions, the net effect of this measure, once it is implemented, would be to increase state and local government costs by at least $30 million annually. Further, net costs would increase substantially as a result of caseload increases under health and welfare programs and programs for disabled children.
