A number of pro-life crisis pregnancy centers filed a lawsuit to challenge the state of Hawaii’s new law that seeks to force pro-life pregnancy centers to refer abortions. Seriously.
Free speech today means you are free to say what we tell you to say.
A Place for Women Pregnancy Care Center and the National Institute of Family and Life Advocates are challenging S.B. 501, which requires locally funded pregnancy centers to post and distribute a notice indicating how to schedule a taxpayer-funded abortion.
“This clinic does not provide abortion services or abortion referrals. Only ultrasounds performed by qualified healthcare professionals and read by licensed clinicians should be considered medically accurate,” part of the notice read.
“Hawaii has public programs that provide immediate free or low-cost access to comprehensive family planning services including all FDA-approved methods of contraception, prenatal care, and abortion for eligible women,” it continued.
According to Christian News Network, the notice must also include the web address and phone number where women can obtain abortions or other services.
This is just nuts, isn’t it?
The government is forcing Christians (because let’s face it, that’s what we’re talking about here) to refer women to places which will kill children even though the Christians are expressly pro-life and created an organization for the express purpose of saving children from such places.
A similar law in California was upheld by the…get this…the 9th Circuit Court. I know, right? But it’s on its way to the U.S. Supreme Court where Justice Anthony Kennedy will issue a decree from his Throne of Black Robed omniscience and force all to do his bidding.
