AB 2943, one of the worst bills pushed by Democrat legislators in 2018, was a blatant attack on your free speech, your religious freedom, and your basic rights.

On August 31, 2018, the final day of the 2017-2018 legislative session, AB 2943's main bill author, Democrat Evan Low of San Jose, pulled his bill, killing it for the year.

If you're glad that AB 2943, the worst bill of the year, is "dead," will you share with your friends this special SaveCalifornia.com report naming the 75 Democrats and 2 Republicans who voted "yes" to impose this upon Californians? Just copy and paste the link to this page on your social media, and into an email message to your personal email list. (It's that EASY!)

We've all got to ask ourselves -- is a vote for them also a vote against religious freedom, against free speech, and against basic constitutional liberties?

Why Democrat bill AB 2943 was outrageous

AB 2943 would have prohibited California adults from seeking their own self-improvement and paying their own money for professional, expert counseling to help them overcome their unwanted homosexual desires or gender confusion.

It would have also threatened with penalties any pastor, church, or para-church ministry that sold tickets to a conference or event, or sold a book or CD or download, about overcoming homosexual or transsexual addictions.

AB 2943 would have denied your constitutional rights of free speech and freedom of religion, and your pre-constitutional right to both make and be responsible for your own choices. Ask yourself -- how could a bill like this even be introduced in the United States of America?

Yet these 77 California legislators (who all raised their right hands and publicly promised to "support and defend" the Constitution and the First Amendment) still voted "yes" on AB 2943.

"Freedom of speech is a principal pillar of a free government; when this support is taken away, the constitution of a free society is dissolved, and tyranny is erected on its ruins." -- U.S. Founding Father Benjamin Franklin in 1737
