California Assemblywoman Sponsors “Donda West Law”
California assemblywoman Wilmer Amina Carter on Friday (February 22) proposed the “Donda West Law,” a measure that would require prospective plastic surgery patients to receive medical clearance before undergoing any elective cosmetic procedures. According to the Associated Press, Carter says she was asked to push the law by the niece of Kanye West’s late mother, Dr. Donda West. The rapper and producer lost his mother to a heart attack on November 10 after she underwent tummy tuck, breast reduction and liposuction procedures in Beverly Hills. The coroner pointed to an existing heart condition and complications following the surgery as contributing factors in Dr. West’s death, but was unable to determine a definitive cause. According to Anderson, Kanye is enthusiastic about the proposed law.
