A professor at Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles defended California’s law which mandates that pro-life crisis pregnancy center refer to abortion clinics, according to the student newspaper. But she did more than defend the law. Professor Judy Battaglia, a communication studies professor, insulted pro-lifers.
“These centers are not pro-women or pro-health, or even ‘pro-life’ — when we talk about whose ‘life matters’ and at what stage — but, poseurs who are pro-forced birth,” she said. “The law should not be re-evaluated. Licensed clinics need to post a notice about publicly funded family planning centers even if they are pro-life or religiously motivated clinics.”
She further posited that the law doesn’t infringe on pro-lifers’ First Amendment right to speech, and the law is necessary so women can make informed decisions about their pregnancy.
The law is currently being reviewed by the U.S. Supreme Court.
