Last month I blogged about California’s so-called Reproductive Freedom, Accountability, Comprehensive Care and Transparency Act. The bill would require medically licensed pregnancy centers, including faith-based ones, to remind pregnant women that they can have their unborn children killed at government facilities.
If they don’t mention death, they face fines.
Breitbart reported that the state assembly passed the bill this week. An excerpt:
The California Family Alliance attacked the bill in April, writing:
“They are now pushing new discriminatory regulations that would force local Pregnancy Care Centers and Clinics (or PCCs, which provide free and confidential support services to pregnant mothers) to advertise and promote chemical and surgical abortions. Under the provisions of AB 775 (Chiu, D-San Francisco), PCC’s that provide medical services such as ultrasounds would be required to refer all clients to Medi-Cal programs that provide free abortions. In addition, any non-medical centers that offer free counseling, pregnancy support, and parenting classes would be required to post signage stating they are ‘not licensed facilities.’ Both types of PCCs would also be coerced to include such statements in all advertising.”
Next stop: the state senate. If it reaches Jerry Brown’s desk, he will sign it into law.
It is the rare woman who doesn’t know she can legally kill her baby in the United States. So why would the government force facilities committed to saving babies to mention the option of dead babies? As I alluded in the previous post, it’s more in-your-face, leftist tactics to offend and impinge on the religious freedom of Christians.
