California Democrat Governor forces crisis pregnancy clinics to promote abortion

Gov. Jerry Brown (D.-Calif.) signed a law on Friday mandating that all licensed pregnancy centers in the state “disseminate to clients” a message promoting public programs with “free or low-cost access” to abortion and contraceptive services.

The new law makes no exception for pro-life and faith-based crisis pregnancy centers.

Critics of the law say that it violates the right to freedom of speech, which is guaranteed by the First Amendment.

AB 775, known in the state legislature as The Reproductive FACT Act, requires all pregnancy centers that are licensed as clinics to post the following notice:

“California has public programs that provide immediate free or low-cost access to comprehensive family planning services (including all FDA-approved methods of contraception), prenatal care, and abortion for eligible women. To determine whether you qualify, contact the county social services office at [insert the telephone number].”

According to the legislation, pregnancy centers that fail to disseminate this message “are liable for a civil penalty of five hundred dollars ($500) for a first offense and one thousand dollars ($1,000) for each subsequent offense.”

There’s a lesson here for the many Christians who see big government as a solution to real problems like rising health care costs and imaginary problems like man-made global warming.  The bigger you grow government, the more power they have to control you. I know that Roman Catholics in particular have seen big government as an ally on issues like health care, amnesty and wealth redistribution. You might remember that it was Catholic bishops who supported Obama when passing his nationalization of health care.

Well, a funny thing about secular governments. If your religion gets in their way, they’ll squash you like a bug. If you morality gets in their way, they’ll squash you like a bug. That’s why we have this thing called the Constitution which restricts the governments exercise of power to specific areas that are supposed to be far, far, FAR away from your church, your family, your school, and your conscience. But what happens when we keep voting for more and more goodies? Government starts to leave their designated area, and starts to intrude into religious liberty and conscience.

Don’t try to solve poverty with government. It ends badly for you.

  1. Well said, WK. And these are the opening shots of a religious war, indeed, Dark Brightness.

    Just curious how much more American Christians will stand and refuse to act. I think that churches, both large and small, are scared to do anything out of fear of losing their tax-free status, a status which, as far as I understand, is only applicable if they keep their noses OUT of politics (political issues and candidates). If we only understood the power we have when we come together to face the Enemy and his minions in this world…

    1. I would not use the word “war”, however I certainly agree that churches need to do a better job of talking about issues like abortion, religious liberty, socialism, marriage, basic economics, foreign policy, and so on. Doesn’t have to be political, just has to be pure knowledge.
