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.

Ruling on pro-life centers could also stop AB 2943

Thursday, June 28, 2018, 6:27 pm | Randy Thomasson

If you’re sick and tired of the Democrat rulers of California trying to ban or punish any moral values they disagree with, here’s some real hope for you.

The U.S. Supreme Court’s big decision recognizing the First Amendment right of pro-life crisis pregnancy centers to NOT be forced to promote values that they oppose (e.g., killing preborn babies via abortion) has set a key precedent for the protected speech of other organizations and business owners with moral values.

As the pro-family legal organization Liberty Counsel notes (quoting from the June 26 opinion in National Institute of Family and Life Advocates (NIFLA) v. Becerra):

This case will also have an impact on laws that seek to ban counsel for unwanted same-sex attractions, behavior, or identity (SOCE). The opinion explicitly adopts the arguments Liberty Counsel has made all along in SOCE cases, which is that “professional speech” cannot be exempted as some “new category of speech.”

The opinion states: “The dangers associated with content-based regulations of speech are also present in the context of professional speech. As with other kinds of speech, regulating the content of professionals’ speech pose[s] the inherent risk that the Government seeks not to advance a legitimate regulatory goal, but to suppress unpopular ideas or information… Take medicine, for example. ‘Doctors help patients make deeply personal decisions, and their candor is crucial.’ Throughout history, governments have ‘manipulat[ed] the content of doctor-patient discourse’ to increase state power and suppress minorities.'”Justice Thomas notes that professional disagreements about the efficacy of professional services cannot be used to suppress speech.

Therefore, have hope! As you know, AB 2943 banning the free speech of counselors, ministries, churches that help people overcome unwanted homosexual or transsexual desires is advancing through the Democrat-controlled California State Legislature. These Democrat politicians don’t care about your basic liberties — they just do the bidding of their tyrannical special-interest supporters (“LGBT’ groups, Planned Parenthood abortionists, etc.)

So even though it’s probable that the Democrat rulers of California will pass AB 2943, it’s also highly probable that the right lawsuit or lawsuits could use National Institute of Family and Life Advocates (NIFLA) v. Becerra to win a future U.S. Supreme Court victory that broadly protects moral speech in America. A success here would not only strike down AB 2943, thus protecting counselors who help adults overcome homosexuality or transsexuality, but would also affirm the right of counselors to help minors who struggle with homosexuality or transsexuality (which Governor Jerry Brown and the Democrats banned in 2012).

This is why I’m asking you to use the White House web form to send a strong message to President Donald Trump. Urge him to “Nominate a strict constructionist and originalist like Neil Gorsuch who will be loyal to the written Constitution, not loyal to their feelings or liberal revisionism like the four leftists currently on the high court. And please don’t nominate William Pryor, who has been inconsistent and even unconstitutional in his rulings.”

“..on every question of construction, carry ourselves back to the time when the Constitution was adopted, recollect the spirit manifested in the debates, and instead of trying what meaning may be squeezed out of the text, or invented against it, conform to the probable one in which it was past.”

CBN News: ‘Anti-Family’ Republicans Join Democrats in California to Pass Latest Sexual Indoctrination Bill

With Republican officeholders like this, who needs Democrat politicians to vote for sexual indoctrination bills?

It’s a fact that the homosexual and transsexual  agenda is unnatural, unhealthy, unbiblical, and tyrannical. But that didn’t stop 5 Democrats and 2 Republicans in a California State Senate committee from turning off their brains and voting for what will probably be California’s 11th sexual indoctrination law harming boys and girls who are enrolled in the government-controlled schools.

On June 20, the California Senate Education Committee voted UNANIMOUSLY to require all California government-school teachers to be brainwashed (via in-service training) “for the support of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and questioning (LGBTQ) pupils as well as strategies to increase support for LGBTQ pupils.”

Joining 5 anti-family Democrats in voting yes for this non-academic, sexual indoctrination bill, designed to recruit and train children to be homosexual and transsexual activists, were two “Republicans”: ANDY VIDAK of Fresno, Kern, Kings and Tulare counties (https://vidak.cssrc.us/content/district) and SCOTT WILK of the Antelope, Santa Clarita, and Victor Valleys (https://wilk.cssrc.us/21st-senate-district)

See the vote on AB 2153 (https://bit.ly/2ywhNtc). State senators voting YES in committee were 5 Democrats — Ben Allen, Cathleen Galgiani, Connie Leyva, Mike McGuire, Richard Pan — along with the two Republicans, Andy Vidak and Scott Wilk

AB 2153 is authored by Democrat Tony Thurmond, who’s running for California Superintendent of Public Instruction

Do these elected representatives deserve your support? Only you can decide. So far, 5 Republican state legislators in California have joined the anti-family Democrats in voting FOR AB 2153: Andy Vidak of Visalia, Scott Wilk of Santa Clarita, (and in the California State Assembly) Catharine Baker of Contra Costa County, Tom Lackey of Palmdale, and Brian Maienschein of north San Diego.
