Attorney General Xavier Becerra defends law steering pregnant women to abortion clinics

Screenshot 2018-03-23 at 07.35.55.pngThe Mercury News reports that California Attorney General Xavier Becerra personally defended a state law requiring pro-life pregnancy centers to tell pregnant women about state-funded programs offering money for abortions.

The 2015 law, backed by abortion rights groups, was upheld by the 9th District Court of Appeal after being challenged by the targeted pregnancy centers.

Similar laws in other states and communities have been overturned, thereby throwing the issue to the Supreme Court.

No such law requiring abortion clinics to tell patients there are pro-life options available to them exists in California.
