The following comes from a November 17 email from the Pacific Justice Institute:
Sacramento, CA—Attorneys with Pacific Justice Institute are asking a federal court to block implementation of a law that would force pro-life pregnancy clinics to point women toward abortion.
Last month, California Governor Jerry Brown signed AB 775, which would require pro-life clinics to tell women about the availability of free or low-cost abortions. Pacific Justice Institute filed suit within 24 hours on behalf of three clinics across the state who believe in the sanctity of life and are morally opposed to abortion. On Friday, the institute filed a Motion for Preliminary Injunction asking the court to prevent the law from going into effect on January 1, 2016.
Brad Dacus, president of Pacific Justice Institute, commented, “It is imperative that we stop the government from forcing people of conscience to advocate messages to which they are morally and religiously opposed. If the government can do this, none of our First Amendment freedoms are secure.”
The case is pending in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of California. Oral arguments are scheduled for December 18 at 10 a.m. before Judge Kimberly Mueller.
The ‘Right Not to Speak’ is as important a part of the First Amendment as ‘Freedom of Speech’, and in some respects the Right to Remain Silent is protected beyond speech and in to the 5th Amendment and more.
While ‘Viewpoint Discrimination’ is allegedly illegal, it has become the foundation of the Radical Leftist / Gender Feminist / Homosex Thought Police pogrom of ‘fundamental transformation’ in to a true AbomiNation.
But Forcing People to Endorse that which they Know is Wrong – is just business as usual for the Demicrat Gaystapo.
God bless Pacific Justice. Once again they are fighting the good fight!
