The radical, pro-abortion left is in shambles.
Ever since the Supreme Court returned the issue of abortion back to the states in June's landmark case Dobbs v. Jackson, anti-life politicians and activists have been frantically trying to save the abortion industry from potential extinction, and, at least in California, it would seem that almost nothing is off the table in terms of the lengths they're willing to go to maintain their culture of death on a permanent basis...
Even before Roe was officially ended, the California General Assembly approved Assembly Bill 2223, deceptively tagged "Reproductive Health," which originally would have decriminalized infanticide. Language was amended, however, when thousands of pro-life activists traveled to Sacramento to protest the provision, but the bill still remains a major threat to both the unborn and infants.
Thankfully, there's still time to stop this life-threatening legislation from becoming law...
Can we count on you to join this campaign calling on California State Senators to be a voice for the unborn in the post-Roe era by opposing Assembly Bill 2223 when it comes before them for a vote?
Then, please SHARE it with like-minded friends and family members to spread the word across California.
The original text of Assembly Bill 2223 would have removed all legal penalties for individuals who violate abortion "health and safety standards" upon performing the procedure on a woman at any given stage of her pregnancy -- including and up until the moment of birth.
These protections would have extended to both medical professionals and expectant mothers for charges resulting from "actions or omissions with respect to their pregnancy or actual, potential, or alleged pregnancy outcome." Per the bill's text, those outcomes could consist of "miscarriage, stillbirth, or abortion, or perinatal death due to a pregnancy-related cause," effectively greenlighting the act of infanticide, or the murder of infants up until a month after birth (the "perinatal" period), and medical neglect of "unwanted" newborns.
This depraved language drew intense backlash almost immediately, drawing thousands of pro-life demonstrators to Sacramento to protest Assembly Bill 2223. As a result, the bill was amended to tone down its language protecting those who commit infanticide -- confirming what we already knew to be true: Concerned citizens and grassroots defenders of life can make a positive difference for the unborn.
But even so, Assembly Bill 2223's language was only changed slightly, from "perinatal death due to a pregnancy-related cause" to "perinatal death due to causes that occurred in utero" -- still leaving the door opened to forms of decriminalized infanticide in the state of California.
This change confirmed two things: (1) That, for all the bluster about how pro-life Americans and organizations were spreading "misinformation" about this legislation, the original text of Assembly Bill 2223 did, in fact, decriminalize infanticide; and (2) that, even with this change, pro-abortion lawmakers in California are still pushing legislation that provide legal protections to those who fail or refuse to provide medical care to babies born alive but injured due to a failed abortion attempt.
In other words: Assembly Bill 2223, even in its amended form, would still allow for certain forms of infanticide to go uninvestigated, unprosecuted, and unpunished in the state of California.
We simply cannot pretend that legislation like this, regardless of its title, has anything to do with "reproductive health" when, in fact, it has everything to do with expanding abortion without consequence in the post-Roe era.
We must not sit idly by while radical pro-abortion politicians do everything in their power to preserve on-demand abortion and legalize the murder of newly-born infants.
Now is the time to fight back.
Please join this crucial campaign to stop Assembly Bill 2223, which would still grant legal protections to those who refuse to provide medical care to babies born alive after a failed abortion.
