The non-profit law firm Advocates for Faith and Freedom just scored a pro-life ruling challenging California’s AB775, the Reproductive FACT Act.
The statute requires pro-life pregnancy centers that are Christian-based to provide women with contact information for where they can get free or low-cost abortions.
The group filed a lawsuit in state court on behalf of the Christian-based Scharpen Foundation.
Superior Court in Riverside County ruled against the California State Attorney General’s motion to dismiss AFF’s case.
According to Judge Gloria Trask, the law “forces the clinic to point the way to the abortion clinic.”
She said the required notification is compelled speech, which on its face violates freedom of speech protected by the California Constitution.
What the FACT Act does is force a Christian pro-life center to speak words with which it profoundly disagrees.
While the ruling is not the final judgement, it foreshadows a decision the law is an unconstitutional violation of free speech.
Jeremiah 1:5 says “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you.”
Babies are precious in God’s eye. Pray such abortion laws are struck down.
