This morning, our friends at Alliance Defending Freedom will present arguments at the United States District Court for the Southern District of California for National Institute of Family and Life Advocates v. Harris, a crucial case about religious liberty and freedom of speech.
Please join us in prayer today for this critical lawsuit regarding AB 775, which just took effect this month. This repressive law, signed by Governor Jerry Brown last year, forces pro-life pregnancy centers to advertise and refer for the government-sponsored abortion industry!
It is truly unconscionable that non-profit pregnancy help organizations would be compelled to advocate a pro-abortion message. The state of California has imposed crushing fines on any of the more than 160 centers that dare to disagree, and this lawsuit from our friends at Alliance Defending Freedom is our best hope to stop the madness.Last week, I interviewed pro-life attorney Matt Bowman from Alliance Defending Freedom.

As Matt goes before the United States District Court for the Southern District of California today (Thursday, January 28) to present this case, please join us in prayer. Specifically, please ask God that:
- Attorney Matt Bowman would make his case skillfully and persuasively,
- The Honorable Judge John Houston would uphold the constitutional freedoms of the pregnancy care organizations,
- Politicians in both Sacramento and Washington would stop trying to force people of faith to violate their deeply held religious beliefs,
- The cause of religious liberty and freedom of speech would be vindicated across the country and around the world.
This is a developing story, so we will keep you posted as we find out more. Thank you for standing with us for Life, Family, and Religious Liberty!
