Christian values and views are once again overridden in California.
A new law, the Reproductive FACT Act, requires all licensed pregnancy centers to inform everyone who visits their centers that they can get low-cost or free abortions!
Even religious-based crisis pregnancy centers must comply. If they don’t, they must pay $500 for the first offense and $1,000 for each subsequent offense, even if the organization is a nonprofit and does not receive any money from the government.
Assemblywoman Shannon Grove (R-Bakersfield), who opposed the bill, stated, “Does the government have a right to tell a newspaper what to write, a preacher what to preach, a private school what to teach? Of course not. So why is it okay for the government to force pro-life pregnancy centers against their will to advertise and promote government abortion services?”
The law will certainly be challenged on First Amendment grounds, but the California judiciary has fairly consistently ruled in favor of a liberal agenda.
This is another salvo fired in the war against Christians. The liberal left is trying to legislate and litigate Christians out of business. If Christians want to stay in business and run their business by Christian principles, they are forced to violate their faith.
Christians, we must be awake, aware, and vigilant. Won’t you stand with the National Center for Life and Liberty as we stand for Christian rights in America?
