First call to action item is to send an unmistakable message to the House that this horrible bill (so-called Women’s Health Protection Act, H.R. 8296) must never be enacted. This bill, once again, is in response to the Supreme Court’s Dobbs decision overturning Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood v. Casey.
Speaker Nancy Pelosi has scheduled another House vote to try to enshrine abortion on demand in federal law through the so-called Women’s Health Protection Act, H.R. 8296. The vote will be held this week. The House passed this bill on September 24, 2021, but the Senate has failed twice this year to advance the bill. Click HERE to send your message!
The next huge battle we are gearing up for is Proposition 1 (formerly SCA 10). This measure flew past the CA Senate is now going to this November’s ballot to be voted on by the people! This measure is aiming to enshrine abortion rights at any stage of pregnancy into the California Constitution.
If you or someone within your parish would like to spearhead this campaign with the aid of the California Catholic Conference and our diocese, please reach out to me. We are looking for parish “captains” who will be responsible to head up a team for parish announcements and setting up tables for voter registration and information regarding Proposition 1.
