With Election Day less than 90 days away, now is the time to get active and start advocating against Prop. 1, the attempt to enshrine abortion rights into the state constitution.The California Catholic Conference has resources available in English and Spanish to assist your parish in raising awareness and encouraging voter registration and participation this fall, including:
Language from the Pew Card:
Proposition 1 is a worst-case scenario for abortion in California. It is an expensive and misleading ballot measure that allows unlimited late-term abortions — for any reason, at any time, even moments before birth, paid for by tax dollars.
Prop 1 isn’t needed. Sadly, California already has some of the most permissive abortion laws in the nation, but with reasonable limits on late-term abortions — which will still be allowed without the amendment for the life and health of the mother. Prop 1 destroys this common-sense limit.
California does not limit state spending on abortion, and with thousands more traveling from other states, the cost will be in the hundreds of millions. Don’t hand lawmakers a blank check to pay for abortions, and don’t let them make California an “abortion sanctuary.”
Vote “No” On Prop 1
The above comes from an August 16 email from the California Catholic Conference.
