Gov. Gavin Newsom has signed abortion bills including a measure that targets pro-life sidewalk counselors
Brian Johnston of the California Pro-Life Council says one bill bans people from protesting at any location where vaccinations are given which, incidentally, includes Planned Parenthood clinics.
“This law goes into immediate effect because it had an urgency clause,” he advises. “So this will add a dramatic restriction on the right of free speech in front of these clinics.”
It would bar pro-life activists from recording clinic staff, including abortionists, so pro-lifers are not able to use the video as evidence to defend themselves when accosted.
Another bill requires insurance firms to keep private any services that are rendered to minors.
Greg Bert of the California Family Council tells American Family News that means a health insurance company can bill parents for their own child's clinic visit --- but not reveal what they are being billed for.
“And those services include,” he says, “abortion, sexual assault treatment, drug abuse treatment, mental health treatment, cross sex hormones and puberty blockers."
