On our most recent podcast “Ep: 11 CA Senator Fear Mongers Florida Legislation” we share exciting news regarding two bills that were attacking pro-life pregnancy centers. Last week during the Assembly Appropriations Committee both A.B. 315 & A.B. 710 were held in the committee, meaning they are officially dead!
A.B. 315, introduced by Assemblywoman Rebecca Bauer-Kahan (D-Livermore), would have enabled pro-abortion activists to sue pro-life pregnancy centers for speech they considered “false or misleading.” But the bill language is so expansive that any pro-life ministry or church that offered women “health counseling service related to pregnancy” would have been affected.
A.B. 710, introduced by Assemblywoman Pilar Schiavo (D-Santa Clarita Valley), would have created a public relations campaign to slander California pro-life pregnancy centers that Schiavo called “fake clinics.” Asm. Schiavo stated in her AB 710 Fact Sheet that pro-life pregnancy care centers, “shame and intentionally mislead women about their reproductive options, then to dissuade them from the decision that is most appropriate for them and their families.” Ultimately, Asm. Schiavo lied and slandered pregnancy care centers across California.
While we rejoice in the death of these two bills, our battle for LIFE is far from over. The California Future of Abortion Council will persist in sponsoring legislation to undermine the life-supporting work and influence of these pregnancy care centers. We must be committed to defending them and support them.
