The abortion lobby tried to silence Pro-Lifers – but they failed, big time.
Abortion supporters in California just received a devastating blow, and they are downright furious.
And the latest Pro-Life victory is a major win for free speech and pregnant moms everywhere.
Governor Gavin Newsom’s pro-abortion agenda was shot down
California Governor Gavin Newsom is the most pro-abortion Governor in America’s history.
He believes abortion should be allowed anytime, for any reason . . .
. . . and even supports underage girls killing their babies.
He signed a law that restricted Right to Life of Central California’s ability to speak out for life, by creating a “100-foot censorship zone” outside of any facility that provided any type of vaccine, reported Live Action.
Essentially, Newsom wanted women to be able to walk into abortion clinics and slaughter babies, without even hearing the possibility of a life-saving alternative.
But Right to Life of Central California refused to back down, and filed a lawsuit to fight back.
The State of California concedes and gives up
The State of California agreed to settle the lawsuit and protect Right to Life’s freedom of speech and pay $192,706 in attorneys’ fees!
Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF) represented Right to Life, and was thrilled at the massive freedom of speech victory.
ADF Senior Counsel Denise Harle wrote “women facing unplanned pregnancies deserve to have full support and resources available to them when they choose life for their unborn children, yet the state of California unconstitutionally tried to silence the voices of those advocating on their behalf.”
Harle continued “This is a significant victory not only for our client, Right to Life, but for every other speaker in California. The First Amendment protects every Californian, regardless of their viewpoint.”
“Now Right to Life’s staff and volunteers can continue their critical mission of serving vulnerable women in the central California region with their free, life-giving services.” said Harle.
Anti-life politicians should pay attention
Other states around the country are also trying to implement “silent zones” hoping to get Pro-Lifers to stop praying on sidewalks and go home.
In fact, Chicago Alderman Bill Conway pushed for “quiet zones” outside of abortion centers hoping to ban Pro-Lifers from playing worship songs, or even praying!
“They’re yelling at them, chanting, speaking through a bullhorn towards them. I’ve seen them handing out literature as well. It’s really all of the above,” Conway told Block Club Chicago.
But Conway should take note of the major freedom of speech victory in California and understand he doesn’t have the authority to silence the First Amendment right of Pro-Lifers to express their views in a peaceful way.
Let’s hope more Pro-Lifers will continue to push back should their state or local government bureaucrats try and silence their Pro-Life views.
