California Assemblywoman Sponsors The 'Donda West Law'

Kanye West’s moving tribute to his late mother Dr. Donda West during the 50th annual Grammy Awards has inspired a California Assemblywoman to sponsor the “Donda West Law.”

Wilmer Amina Carter (D-Rialto) has been working on a new bill that will require patients to receive clearance from a licensed doctor, before undergoing plastic surgery.

Carter, who has been working with the California Medical Association to craft the bill, made the announcement about the proposed legislation on Friday (February 22).

The proposed bill comes on the heels of the high profile death of Dr. West, which received intense media coverage.

West, 58, died from complications of plastic surgery after receiving a breast reduction, liposuction and a tummy tuck.

While the actual cause of Dr. West’s death is not known, coroners have concluded that she died from a combination of heart disease and complications from the anesthesia.

Carter, who represents San Bernardino, Fontana, Rialto, Colton, Bloomington and Muscoy counties, hopes the legislation will pass statewide.

Other states being targeted to pass similar laws include New York, Illinois, Oklahoma.
