Pro-abortion liberals like to use the word “choice” when defending their support for murdering the unborn, but in reality their position has nothing to do with a woman’s right to choose. Instead, it has everything to do with the “death culture” so common with the liberal left. And if you’re a part of the abortion mill known as Planned Parenthood, you also favor the millions of dollars to be made–usually at taxpayer’s expense–with each murdered child.
A new bill passed by the California Assembly proves my point.
Across America, thousands of pregnancy centers have served as an alternative to abortion by providing women with tangible help and real alternatives. But pregnancy centers in California may soon find themselves forced to endorse and support abortions under legislation pending in the California legislature.
The state Assembly has passed AB 775, the Reproductive Freedom, Accountability, Comprehensive Care and Transparency (FACT) Act, which would require all pregnancy centers to promote abortions to their clients. There is no “conscience clause” or “opt out” for centers that provide pregnant women a non-abortion alternative. Failure to comply carries heavy fines.
As stated by Assemblyman Jim Patterson (R-Fresno), the bill is clearly unconstitutional while ignoring science:
“This bill strikes at the heart of free association, free political and religious speech and practice, and the self-evident truth of biology. Privately funded Pregnancy Resource Centers, and the compassionate women who volunteer at them, have a First Amendment right to Freedom of Speech. And it is our duty as officer of the state of California to protect that right, not to assault it.”
California’s “no-holds-barred” abortion industry is in the midst of a government-sponsored boon. In 2013, the state waived safety regulations for abortion clinics (AB 980) and reduced the medical standards required to perform abortions by allowing nurses to do the surgeries (AB 154). And while the California Department of Health cut all medical reimbursements by 10%, it increased taxpayer funding to abortion providers by 40%.
As Lori Arnold of the California Family Alliance says, this isn’t enough for the pro-death abortion providers:
“Abortion profiteers like Planned Parenthood and NARAL are still not content with state taxpayers as their sugar daddy. They are now pushing new discriminatory regulations that would force local Pregnancy Care Centers and Clinics (PCCs providing free and confidential support services to pregnant women) to advertise and promote chemical and surgical abortions,” said Arnold.
“Under the provisions of AB 75, 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.”
Recent polling indicates that a majority favors increased restrictions on the abortion industry, but for the pro-death, radical left-wing of the Democrat party–along with the Planned Parenthood types–that doesn’t matter. If they can make a few bucks, preferably from the taxpayers, what’s another dead baby or two?
