'This unbelievable government mandate is an example of the evolution of political correctness'
By Bob Unruh
Christian pro-life counseling centers are fighting a mandate from the government in California, based on instructions from NARAL Pro-Choice America to lawmakers there, that they promote abortion even if the procedure violates their faith.
The state has adopted a requirement, in a plan sponsored by the abortionists, that crisis pregnancy centers must promote the state’s offerings for abortion, whether they believe in it, support it, or even whether it offends their deeply held religious beliefs.
The same plan had been adopted in New York, but was dropped after a legal challenge there.
The result is that pregnancy care centers in New York City can continue to “serve women without being forced to speak or post messages that are contrary to their pro-life beliefs or that direct women away from the services the centers offer,” according to officials with the the Alliance Defending Freedom, which fought the state government over the issue there.Read the tested and proven strategies to defeat the abortion cartel, in “Abortion Free: Your Manual for Building a Pro-Life America One Community at a Time.”
In California, the issue is the same, that government officials are ordering pro-life centers – which offer counseling, pregnancy testing kits, housing, baby supplies and other services – to post notices in prominent places declaring they don’t offer abortions. And they must make available information about the state’s abortion programs.
The also has arisen in Montgomery County, Maryland, where WND reported two years ago that officials decided not to appeal an adverse court ruling that halted their plan.
And it’s come up in Illinois, where it currently is the subject of litigation.
In California, there have been several legal challenges launched, involving a long list of pro-life centers.
In one case, Liberty Counsel is representing His Nesting of Long Beach, Pregnancy and Family Resource Center of San Bernardino and Birth Choice of the Desert of La Quinta, all of which offer women experiencing crisis pregnancies resources, counseling, advice and alternatives to abortion.
