Pro-Choice Kern County planning to protest at this week's Bakersfield City Council Meeting

Will protest a proposed abortion law

Members of Pro-Choice Kern County are planning to protest a proposed abortion law at this week's Bakersfield City Council Meeting.

Group organizer Jennifer Smith tells 23 ABC they want the council to know they are against the human life ordinance.

Smith says Councilman Willie Rivera told her a revised version could be put up for a vote towards the end of the summer.

The revision was drafted by local pro-life supporter Tim Palmquist.

He says it doesn't ban abortions, but does allow someone to sue a person who has one.

Bakersfield's city attorney says the ordinance is unconstitutional.
