‘Requiring students to promote the phone number of the largest abortion mill in the nation is repulsive and unconstitutional…’
(Joshua Paladino, Liberty Headlines) California State Assemblyman Jesse Gabriel wants the state’s schools to advertise Planned Parenthood’s abortion services on student identification cards.
The law would force public and private middle and high schools—whether Christian or secular—to put Planned Parenthood’s phone number on every student ID.
“This outrageous California bill proposed by Assemblyman Jesse Gabriel is an attack on the First Amendment by forcing every California student to become a spokesperson for Planned Parenthood,” said Mat Staver, Liberty Counsel founder and chairman.
“Requiring students to promote the phone number of the largest abortion mill in the nation is repulsive and unconstitutional,” Staver said. “When will the California legislators learn they cannot force people to be a mouthpiece for Planned Parenthood?”
Gabriel’s bill, AB 624, is disguised as the “Pupil and Student Health” bill, despite its obvious intention to normalize abortion, not provide health services.
Gabriel’s connection to Planned Parenthood is obvious, too.
He received an endorsement, which he advertised on his website, from Sarah Mitchell, the public affairs and communications manager at Planned Parenthood Los Angeles.
“Planned Parenthood is proud to endorse Jesse Gabriel for State Assembly. Jesse has a long record of standing up for those most in need, and we know that he will be a strong partner in protecting women’s health and ensuring access to vital services—including life-saving cancer screenings, birth control, and STD testing and treatment.”
While Mitchell points out “cancer screenings” and “STD testing,” the Planned Parenthood “chat room” that students will contact goes straight to its real purpose.
The first two questions are: “I forgot to take my pill, what do I do?” and “Forgot to use a condom?”
The answer is clear in the third question: “How does the abortion pill work?”
Planned Parenthood also supported Gabriel with a $4,400 contribution to his 2018 campaign.
The California Assembly Education Committee will have a hearing for the bill on March 27.
