Even leftist media disagree with CA bill that would silence pro-lifers

As reported by One News Now, “A pro-life advocate has concerns with California legislation to criminalize investigative reporting on abortion.

The bill, AB 1671, comes after David Daleiden and the Center for Medical Progress released undercover videos of Planned Parenthood and other abortionists harvesting limbs and tissue from aborted babies that would allegedly then be sold for profit.

California lawmakers, backed by Planned Parenthood, now want to ban any reporting or recording of conversations with abortionists or other health care personnel "without the consent of all parties to the communication."

‘If this bill were to become law, it criminalizes even media who is reporting on and disseminating in any way that footage,’ says Lila Rose of Live Action. ‘So it's basically a freeze on the freedom of speech, and freedom of the press in California, if this bill goes into law.’

It is such a serious violation of constitutional rights that Rose says even secular news organizations are openly protesting the legislation.

‘It's interesting to see the mainstream folk, even self-identified pro-choice journalists, are decrying this bill,’ Rose says. ‘It is a clear attack on anybody who's trying to tell the truth about tax-funded abortion facilities.’

The legislation is dangerous for journalists and attacks the ‘free press principle of prior restraint,’ Thomas Peel, an investigative reporter for The Mercury News, wrote in a May 18 op-ed

He cited a 1971 U.S. Supreme Court case over the Pentagon Papers that ruled the ‘government cannot pre-censor news organizations or otherwise halt or criminalize publication.’

While praising Planned Parenthood, Peele admitted the abortion giant is the bill's ‘main supporter’ in the state.

Rose thinks that it just goes to show the fear that abortion facilities experience.

‘They know they're doing horrific crimes against humanity,’ she says, ‘and they're trying to keep that covered up and hidden from the public.’

Live Action has, for several years now, released undercover videos of mostly Planned Parenthood facilities pushing abortions on underage girls, even coaching them on how to protect their legal age molester.'

How sad that we have fallen to the state of protecting the murderers and prosecuting the victims or those who try to protect the victims. One can disagree with this all they want, but the truth is the truth.

  1. PP was even caught telling an undercover "pimp" how to get abortions for his 14 year-old girls and how soon the girls could return to "work" afterward. PP is evil and anyone who supports them in any way is trapped in evil themselves. When did humans lose their self respect to think this kind of satanic darkness is good?
