PROHIBITION OF PUBLIC FUNDING FOR TERMINATION OF HUMAN LIFE AFTER FERTILIZATION. INITIATIVE CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT. Adds the following underlined words to the California Constitution: "Notwithstanding any other provision of the California Constitution or any state court decision, money may be drawn from the Treasury only through an appropriation made by law and upon a Controller's duly drawn warrant. No public money shall be spent directly or indirectly for the killing of innocent human individuals from fertilization until natural death." Summary of estimate by Legislative Analyst and Director of Finance of fiscal impact on state and local governments: Assuming that key social characteristics do not change, the net effect of this measure would be to increase state and local government costs as the estimated cost of increased welfare and disabled children programs will exceed the estimated savings from not spending public funds for therapeutic abortions funded through Medi-Cal or county health programs or funded through public employees health benefit programs. The increased costs would be a minimum of $1 million annually, once the effect of the measure is fully realized. In subsequent years, net costs would increase substantially.
