(LifeNews) After more than two months of sitting on the state Senate floor, California’s Assembly Bill 775 passed Thursday afternoon with the 24 votes it needed to move along to the desk of Democratic Gov. Jerry Brown.
Referred to as the Reproductive FACT Act by its authors, David Chiu (D-San Francisco) and Autumn Burke (D-Marina Del Ray), the legislation singles out the state’s 150 pro-life pregnancy help locations—including the 73 that offer free ultrasound.
The law will force all of the state’s local pregnancy help non-profits to give each of its clients the following disclaimer, which includes the phone number of a county social services office where a client could obtain an abortion covered by Medi-Cal. The notice, which the law specifies must either be posted as a public notice in “22-point type,” “distributed to all clients in no less than 14-point font” or distributed digitally “at the time of check-in or arrival,” applies to all of the entities—even those licensed by the state.
