A federal appeals court is considering whether a state can commandeer pregnancy centers to deliver government-approved messages about abortion options.
Last fall, California Gov. Jerry Brown signed a law requiring all California health facilities to tell clients about the availability of free or low-cost abortion. Pro-life advocates dubbed the law the “Bully Bill” because it forces community-funded crisis pregnancy centers to post signs that refer women to abortion providers in violation of their religious beliefs.
