Mandating an abortionist’s phone number on student ID cards?

Wednesday, March 6, 2019, 3:39 pm | Randy Thomasson

There’s a very bad bill — ridiculous, unconstitutional, anti-parent, anti-religion, and deathly — introduced by a very pro-abortion California state legislator who’s received lots of money from Planned Parenthood abortionists.

Democrat Jesse Gabriel of Assembly District 45 in Los Angeles’ San Fernando Valley has authored AB 624 to require an abortionist’s phone number on student ID cards at every junior high, high school, and college campus in California, including Christian- and Catholic-format schools and universities.

The bill states that “a public school, including a charter school, or a private school, that serves pupils in any of grades 7 to 12” and “a public or private institution of higher education”…”shall have printed on either side of the student identification cards”…”a sexual or reproductive health hotline.” NOTE: “A sexual or reproductive health hotline” is obvious code for Planned Parenthood abortionists.

Religious schools are in the Democrat politicians’ crosshairs again. Yet AB 624’s blatant violation of religious freedom and free speech (which even liberal politicians remember as “separation of church and state”) isn’t allowed in the USA. Because the 2018 U.S. Supreme Court ruling NIFLA v. Becerra prohibited government from compelling private organizations (pro-life crisis pregnancy centers) to support pro-abortion messages.

But neither the U.S. Constitution nor the decisions of the U.S. Supreme Court matter to Planned Parenthood abortionists or their bought-and-owned politicians (all the Democrats in the California Legislature are pro-abortion and pro-Planned-Parenthood). They want free advertising for new abortion customers as young as 12 years old.

So, AB 624 and its Democrat author have no problem forcing Christian- and Catholic-format junior highs, high schools, and universities to put an abortionist’s phone number on their student ID cards. This way, no parent and no school administrator will know about the killing of pre-born babies and the emotional scarring of teenage girls.

TAKE ACTION

1. Leave this message with the 5 Democrats and 1 Republican on the Assembly Education Committee: “Oppose AB 624 which mandates an abortion provider’s phone number on student ID cards, including at faith-based schools and universities. This bill blatantly violates the U.S. Supreme Court ruling in NIFLA v. Becerra, which said California can’t force private institutions to support abortion messages that they disagree with.”

2. Pray to God in Jesus Christ’s Name that He would send angels to California’s pro-abortion Democrat state legislators (3/4ths of the State Legislature) to bother them to NOT support AB 624.

3. Tell all your friends that Democrat politicians are unfortunately pro-abortion and this tyrannical bill is more evidence of this. Planned Parenthood only endorses pro-abortion Democrats, as shown here and here.

The California Legislature included in its official history the congratulatory statement that the Act was part of California’s legacy of “forward thinking.” App. 38–39. But it is not forward thinking to force individuals to “be an instrument for fostering public adherence to an ideological point of view [they] fin[d] unacceptable.” Wooley v. Maynard, 430 U. S. 705, 715 (1977). It is forward thinking to begin by reading the First Amendment as ratified in 1791; to understand the history of authoritarian government as the Founders then knew it; to confirm that history since then shows how relentless authoritarian regimes are in their attempts to stifle free speech; and to carry those lessons onward as we seek to preserve and teach the necessity of freedom of speech for the generations to come. Governments must not be allowed to force persons to express a message contrary to their deepest convictions. Freedom of speech secures freedom of thought and belief. This law imperils those liberties.

Why every female should oppose transsexuality

Thursday, February 28, 2019, 9:30 am | Randy Thomasson


“Transgender” athletes in school sports are making the news again. And it’s your opportunity to easily explain to people the harm of allowing boys to masquerade as girls.

In the above photograph of the runners, two biological boys (the two black boys on the left) won first and second place in the 55-meter dash earlier this month. These boys, who say they’re transgender and call themselves “girls,” beat all the girls running, turning the biological girls into losers.

It is so unfair to allow boys to compete in athletics against girls. Here’s why“Male athletes have a higher ratio of muscle mass to body weight, which allows for greater speed and acceleration. This explains why female speed records in running and swimming are consistently 10 percent slower than men’s, and why, on average, they have two thirds of the strength of men.”

The transgender lie is so obvious, that tennis star Martina Navratilova, a self-proclaimed “lesbian,” says permitting biological males (both adolescents and adults) to compete in women’s sports is “cheating” and “insane.

“To put the argument at its most basic,” she wrote this weekend in an op-ed for the Sunday Times of London, “a man can decide to be female, take hormones if required by whatever sporting organisation is concerned, win everything in sight and perhaps earn a small fortune, and then reverse his decision and go back to making babies if he so desires.” Source

“It is surely unfair on women who have to compete against people who, biologically, are still men. I am happy to address a transgender woman in whatever form she prefers, but I would not be happy to compete against her.” Navratilova, who became a target for abuse after coming out as gay in 1981, said she deplored the “tyranny” of transgender activists who “denounce anyone who argues against them.” Source

For speaking this biological truth, Navratilova has been kicked off an advisory board for “LGBT” athletes.

Every woman and girl who supports equal opportunity for women or women’s sports should oppose the unnatural transsexual agenda. For when adolescent boys and men pretend to be women, the real women always lose.

Who voted to impose this unfair policy upon all California K-12 public schools?

Signed by Governor Jerry Brown in 2013 after passage by 46 Democrats in the State Assembly and 21 Democrats in the State Senate, AB 1266 requires all K-12 public schools to permit biological boys in girls’ restrooms, showers, clubs, and sports teams; and biological girls in boys’ restrooms, showers, clubs, and sports teams. The “right” to violate these sexual boundaries is solely a self declaration of a different “gender identity.”

Passed by the majority Democrats in the California Legislature, AB 1266 tramples parents’ rights and invades the personal comfort zones of millions of children for a handful of sexually confused children who need professional counseling. Not only is transsexuality unnatural and unhealthy, AB 1266 invites blatant fraud, since there are porn-influenced boys who will try to see girls partially or fully naked by declaring themselves “female” for the day.

AB 1266 mandates this agenda and permits this abuse, reading, “A pupil shall be permitted to participate in sex-segregated school programs and activities, including athletic teams and competitions, and use facilities consistent with his or her gender identity, irrespective of the gender listed on the pupil’s records.”

“Typically females have two X chromosomes and males have an X and a Y. Mothers always pass an X chromosome on to their children. Whether your father passes on his X chromosome (leading to a pair of X chromosomes) or his Y chromosome (making a mixed set) determines your sex.”

Time for California conservatives to come out of the closet

Friday, December 7, 2018, 3:35 pm | Randy Thomasson

It’s spiritually dark in California. Are you motivated to bring out your moral “flashlight”? Because average people desperately need the light that you shine with SaveCalifornia.com.

First, because there’s an aggressive new attack on your moral and family values

Two powerful, wealthy homosexual activists in California are launching a two-prong war to try to scare people of faith into silence.

Homosexual-activist TV producer Ryan Murphy says he’ll spend millions of dollars in his goal to defeat family-values candidates and elect pro-perversity replacements, in California and around the nation. And Tim Cook, the homosexual-activist head of Apple, says he’s increasing his censorship of “those who push hate [and] division” from Apple’s platforms.

Yet I ask, what about those who hate truth, hate facts, and hate pro-family people that leftists call “haters?” And what about liberals who try to “divide out” moral Americans and ostracize them? In their tyrannical attack upon free speech, these homosexual activists are showing their hypocrisy. They want their First Amendment, but want to deny you your American birthright.

These tyrannical attacks remind me of Adolf Hitler’s Nazi government oppressing and persecuting the European Jews. Remember, before being deported to concentration camps where 5-6 million Jews were killed, the Jews living under “The Third Reich” suffered nine years of increasing, systematic elimination of their basic rights. Their free speech, religious rights, political rights, business rights, consumer choices, education choices — all gone.

Similarly, homosexual-transsexual activists want to eliminate your constitutional rights (religious freedom, free speech, freedom to petition and protest) and your pre-constitutional rights (ownership rights, parental rights, etc.) Ultimately, they want to shut you up — so they’ll never hear the loving, rescuing facts that their behavior is unnatural, unhealthy, unbiblical, and destructive, and that they can escape it as thousands have done.

This is why Apple banned me from iTunes. And it’s why, I expect, under Tim Cook’s blatant censorship, you’ll see other pro-family voices banned. Ready to give up your iPhone?

The threatening tyranny of the “LGBT” agenda is one of your big reasons to stand strong with SaveCalifornia.com. As God gives us breath, neither I nor SaveCalifornia.com will stop helping people understand why marriage is only for a man and a woman, why children do best with a married father and mother under the same roof, why there are only two sexes (male and female), and why there’s no such thing as “transgender” since a male has an inherited Y chromosome and a female doesn’t — and this cannot change.

Second, because Democrats in control of state government have an evil agenda

With California’s ballot-box-stuffing “blue wave,” Democrats now control nearly 3/4ths of the State Legislature. And they want to pass some expensive, mind-blowing bills:

1. Free community college: While the first year is already “free,” Democrat politicians want the next year “free” too. Which means you and other taxpayers would be taxed more.

Average people have to realize that it’s not “Democrats are for the poor,” but “Democrats make you poor.” Because to be a Democrat politician these days, you must believe in one foundational agenda item: take from the responsible to give to the irresponsible. This is the Democrats’ lie-based, thieving worldview. So they a) grow big government all the bigger, b) shirk good-government priorities, and c) when it comes to “free” community college, they tell 18- and 19-year-olds that holding a part-time job is “too hard” for them.

2. Government healthcare for illegal aliens: California’s Democrat politicians also want to give “free” healthcare to illegal aliens, which could cost $3 BILLION per year.

With un-American policies like these, I can only conclude that Californians who vote for Democrats are either big-government liberals, dumbed-down college grads, prostituting government workers, or foolish people who trust the TV news and who never think critically. These radical Democrat bills are just a taste of what you and I must publicly expose as wrong and also must explain the good that should be done instead.

3. Gavin Newsom’s big, expensive liberal dreams: As veteran political columnist Dan Walters explains, uber-liberal Democrat Governor-Elect Gavin Newsom’s promised agenda includes these expensive items:

“Guaranteed health care for all. A ‘Marshall Plan’ for affordable housing. A master plan for aging with dignity. A middle-class workforce strategy. A cradle-to-college promise for the next generation. An all-hands approach to ending child poverty.”

Translated, this means that Newsom and the Democrats intend to replace:

1. Parents (with a government “nanny”)
2. Your private business (with socialism regulating job-creators to death)
3. Your own money (with even higher taxes)
4. Your personal merit (with racist/sexual favoritism)
5. Your medical choices (with government-run healthcare)
6. Personal responsibility (with more “welfare” handouts)
7. Citizenship (with equivalency to being an illegal alien)

Lesson: Democrat politicians = government owning you by another name (Communism in disguise).

Do you see why, together, we must expose what the Democrat politicians are doing? This is why you need SaveCalifornia.com and SaveCalifornia.com needs you. Because each time the average person hears about a shocking, new Democrat bill and thinks “ouch,” you and I need to be there to explain how the “hurt” is not helpful, but harmful.

And third, because love for others requires decisive action

What gets you going in life? Or what inspires you to donate to a cause? The usual motivators of life are Self-Interest, Fear, Anger, Love, or Faith. But when dealing with the pain and complexity of politics and culture, your motive must be Love. Yes, our Love for God and people must propel us. For love has staying power in the face of opposition and when suffering for the sake of righteousness.

Who may worship in your sanctuary, Lord?
Who may enter your presence on your holy hill?
Those who lead blameless lives and do what is right,

and who cannot be bribed to lie about the innocent.
Such people will stand firm forever.
