4 States are Trying to Strip Pro-Lifers of Free Speech

Does the state have the proper authority to force a doctor, organization, church or individual citizen to promote, refer for espouse the so-called “benefits” of murder?

What if not everybody agrees that the taking of a preborn human life is murder? Should that lack of consensus open the door for the state to force its own citizens to speak a message in direct opposition to their own deeply held convictions?

That’s the essential question in four states, where the abortion industry has gone after pro-life pregnancy help organizations with legislation that would force those organizations—or, in two states, all pro-life medical professionals—to promote, refer or declare the “benefits” of abortion.

Stretching from Connecticut to Hawaii, the abortion lobby’s legislative assault on life-affirming alternatives isn’t going unchecked by pro-life advocates, who look in position to score major long-term victories with the confirmation hearing of Judge Neil Gorsuch and a GOP house budget plan that redirects Planned Parenthood funding to Federally Qualified Health Centers that do not perform or refer for abortions.

Not one pregnancy help center in Connecticut, Illinois, Hawaii, or California receives a dime in state or federal funding, existing entirely as community-funded nonprofits.

Here’s the latest in the battle for pro-life individuals, medical professionals, churches and pregnancy centers to uphold their First Amendment rights of free speech and free religious exercise. Read More on the actions by the states of Connecticut, Illinois, Hawaii & California
