Pesticides & pregnancy don’t mix

Right now, Governor Jerry Brown has a bill on his desk to ensure that pregnant women in California receive information about how exposure to pesticides and other chemicals in the womb can impact a child later in life. Help make sure he signs this very smart bill into law!

California Senate Bill 460 (Pavley) also encourages doctors and midwives to provide advice on steps pregnant women can take to avoid exposure to pesticides and other chemicals that scientists say may harm a developing fetus.

This policy is a simple move that would have powerful impacts. Urge the governor to sign SB 460, today.
