California Governor Signs Bill Ordering Pregnancy Centers to Promote Gov’t Abortion Programs

By Heather Clark - Posted at Christian News Network:

SACRAMENTO, Calif. — The governor of California has signed a bill into law that requires pro-life pregnancy centers to inform all clients that they can obtain an abortion at state-funded facilities.

As previously reported, the bill is known in the legislature as the Reproductive FACT Act, but to pro-lifers, it is dubbed the “bully bill.” The text of the act states that its author, Democratic Assemblyman David Chiu, takes issue with pregnancy centers that don’t provide abortion referrals to women.

“The author contends that, unfortunately, there are nearly 200 licensed and unlicensed clinics known as crisis pregnancy centers (CPCs) in California whose goal is to interfere with women’s ability to be fully informed and exercise their reproductive rights, and that CPCs pose as full-service women’s health clinics, but aim to discourage and prevent women from seeking abortions,” it reads.
