Bad Laws

SB 245 "Free Abortion" Bill is now a Bad Law

 

Gov. Newsom signed the “Free Abortion” bill into law on March 22, 2022. The law will force all insurance companies to subsidize costs of abortions, making abortion "free" for women -- no deductibles, no co-pays whatsoever. The bill will also fund anything all abortion and abortion-related services, including preabortion and followup services.

AB 1356 Bans Pro-Life Speech

 

AB 1356 creates both a criminal action as well as a private cause of action for a special plaintiff class to sue anyone who posts images or videos taken on public property showing images of abortion providers, their employees, or patients. There is no exception for George Floyd-style videos showing crimes against peaceful pro-life protestors. The League's and others' vehement opposition resulted in a narrow exception for news reporting.
