We won’t let California STRANGLE pro-life speech…!

Help stop the PRO-ABORTION POLICE STATE beginning in KOOKY CALIFORNIA…!

The California legislature is considering several bills that have deadly implications, especially for vulnerable children in the womb. We urge Californians and non-Californians alike to learn about these proposals, as California is the breeding ground for state and federal legislation.   Senate Bill 742 would impose hefty fines – and jail terms – on anyone picketing within 300 feet of …
