Abortion Legislation

And you thought we were making progress?

California's Governor Jerry Brown signed legislation that requires crisis pregnancy centers, including those run by Christians aimed at offering alternatives to killing babies, to provide information on "the full range of low-cost or free reproductive services available under state law, including contraception and abortion." The law goes into effect in January. "Oh," California says, "you can offer alternatives to killing babies, but you'll have to advertise low-cost or free ways to murder them, too. We don't much care about that whole Planned Parenthood fiasco or the rights of the unborn. Nor do we care about your religious freedoms when it runs counter to our sexual proclivities." Apologies to the many Californians I know who sharply disagree. We'll see how this plays out in the courts.

I wouldn't put too much faith in the courts of California. They've already demonstrated a total disregard for the will of the people. They definitely won't be standing up for religious companies or organizations.

Yeah, that "We'll see how this plays out in the courts" was only 1) a nod to the fact that before it was signed it was being sued and 2) we all know how it will play out. Good thing I don't have my trust in the courts.
