Democrat politicians celebrate Mother's Day by passing bill mandating abortionist's phone number on student ID cards

58 Democrats power through AB 624 to impose abortion ads on millions of California students

Sacramento, California (May 10, 2019) -- The California State Assembly, dominated by Democrats, has approved legislation to mandate an abortionist's phone number on the student ID cards of students at public junior high and high schools, and public and private nonsectarian colleges, universities, and other post-secondary education institutions. 

AB 624 states that "a public school, including a charter school, that serves pupils in any of grades 7 to 12" and "a public or nonsectarian private institution of higher education" ... "shall have printed on either side of the student identification cards" ... "a sexual or reproductive health hotline" (code for Planned Parenthood abortionists). 
 
The vote on Thursday, May 9 in the 80-member State Assembly was 58 Democrats yes, 14 Republicans no, and 5 Republicans and 3 Democrats did not vote. AB 624 is now in the State Senate, awaiting committee assignment.
 
"This is a Planned Parenthood abortionist's dream bill -- their Democrat politicians are providing free abortion advertising to millions of children as young as 12 years old," said Randy Thomasson, president of SaveCalifornia.com, a pro-child, pro-family organization. "Mandating this upon private nonsectarian colleges and universities infringes on the free speech of schools that aren't about promoting abortion."
 
If AB 624 becomes law, a private college or university could mount a constitutional challenge based on the 2018 U.S. Supreme Court decision of NIFLA v. Becerra, which prohibited the California Legislature from compelling private organizations to support messages that conflict with their beliefs or mission.
 
In addition, Thomasson questioned the "health" motive of AB 624. "What about how abortion harms women's health?" Thomasson asked. "Where's the acknowledgement of post-abortion infections, bleeding, blood clots, cut or torn cervix, puncturing the wall of the uterus, and a whole host of post-abortive negative emotions, including grief, depression, nightmares, sexual dysfunction, drug and alcohol abuse, eating disorders, anxiety, flashbacks, even suicide? Are Planned Parenthood abortionists going to disclose these risks to pre-teens and teens who call?
 
"And what about the fact that every abortion stops a beating heart and stops already measurable brain waves of the pre-born baby inside the mother? Will 12- and 13-year-old girls ever hear these facts from the abortion 'hotline' printed on their student ID card? Where's the adoption hotline? Are the anti-life Democrat politicians against any 'unwanted' child living?
 
"An abortionist's phone number on student ID cards means additional and younger customers for Planned Parenthood abortionists and more taxpayer-funded abortions performed on girls behind the backs of parents, teachers, and school administrators. It's sickening what these Democrat legislators are doing."
