California SB 309 bill will authorize a special license plate to fund abortions

It is bad enough that abortion — the deliberate killing of a defenseless, unborn human being — is still legal in America, where Christians are still a majority, though decreasing in numbers by the day.

It is bad enough that our tax dollars still fund abortions, although, God bless him, President Trump has signed a law restoring states’ right to defund Planned Parenthood.

Note: Trump also defunded International Planned Parenthood, by signing an executive order to that effect on his first day of work as President. Ostensibly-conservative carping critics of Trump please note.

Now, in benighted California, the state legislature is poised to pass a bill into law which will authorize a special vehicle license plate, the proceeds of which will fund sterilization and abortions.

The bill is SB 309, with the Orwellian descriptive title of “License Plates: Reproductive Freedom Fund”.

SB 309 is innocuously described as “An act to add Section 5156.9 to the Vehicle Code, relating to license plates,” but it’s so much more — and worse — than that.

Here’s the text of SB 309:

“Existing law authorizes the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) to issue special license plates, including environmental license plates and specified special environmental design license plates. Under existing law, a state agency is authorized to apply to the DMV to sponsor a special license plate program, and the DMV is required to issue those license plates if the agency meets certain requirements. The DMV is required to charge specified fees for certain services related to the issuance of those plates.
This bill would require the State Department of Health Care Services to apply to sponsor a reproductive freedom license plate program, and would require the DMV to issue the license plates if the State Department of Health Care Services meets certain requirements. The bill would authorize the State Department of Health Care Services to accept and use donated artwork from California artists for the license plate. The bill would require the revenue generated from the license plates, as specified, to be deposited in the California Reproductive Freedom Fund, created by the bill, and to be used, upon appropriation, for the Family Planning, Access, Care, and Treatment program (Family PACT) [administered by the State Department of Health Care Services].”

So what’s the nice-sounding Family PACT program? Here’s its self-description:

“Family PACT is California’s innovative approach to provide comprehensive family planning services to eligible low income (under 200% federal poverty level) men and women. Family PACT serves 1 million income eligible men and women of childbearing age through a network of 2,200 public and private providers. Services include comprehensive education, assistance, and services relating to family planning.”

And what exactly are those “services relating to family planning”?

From the PDF “Family PACT Overview“:

“Client Benefits & Services

Family PACT provides comprehensive family planning services to women and men including all FDA approved forms of contraception, emergency contraception, pregnancy testing with counseling, preconception counseling, male and female sterilization, limited infertility services, sexually transmitted infection testing and treatment, cancer screening, and HIV screening. Individual client reproductive health education and counseling is an ongoing component of all service.”

Emergency contraception” (EC) is emergency contraception pills, taken after unprotected sex to pregnant pregnancy. EC is a form of abortion by preventing a fertilized egg from attaching to the uterus.

The Family PACT program is administered through Family PACT “providers,” among whom are Planned Parenthood clinics, where “family planning” is a synonym for abortion.

Lest there is any remaining doubt that SB 309 will fund abortions, here’s what (the infamous) Ninth Circuit Senior Judge Dorothy Wright Nelson wrote in an opinion:

“the California Reproductive Freedom, Accountability, Comprehensive Care, and Transparency Act . . . requires that licensed pregnancy-related clinics disseminate a notice stating the existence of publicly-funded family-planning services, including contraception and abortion.”

SB 309 was introduced by Sen. Hannah-Beth Jackson, the bill’s author; its coauthor is Assembly member Cristina Garcia.

On May 30, 2017, SB 309 was read a third time in California’s State Senate and passed 28:13. On June 8, 2017, the bill was referred to the State Assembly’s Committee on Transportation. A hearing date is scheduled for tomorrow, June 26. A majority vote is required to pass SB 309.

Good news!

The abortion license-plate bill, SB 309, has died in California State Assembly’s fiscal committee. An analysis by the Assembly Appropriations Committee estimated it would cost up to $590,000 to create the specialized license plate, including computer programming changes, new forms and administrative costs.

  1. Contribution to commit murder under the law. Contraceptives used on time prevent abortions.

    Are these people representative of California’s majority, or have they come in through election fraud? This is the same question I am asking about Massachusetts. Whenever I say anything conservative on my Facebook page it becomes clear that YES, Massachusetts has that many ignorant voters.

  7. It’s been said that abortion is genocide upon the black race, given that some 52% or more black people don’t make it to outside the womb (not as a live baby), and I agree. But let us also remember that abortion is genocide against the white race. As far back as Coudenhove, the dirty little secret has been there: To extinct the Caucasian race, by hook or by crook, one way or another. Yes, Margaret Sanger said, “We don’t want word to get out that we want to exterminate the Negro population.” But it is also the “long march” to get Whitey out of the halls of power and off the face of the Earth. This can readily be seen in the falling birth rates throughout the United States and all of Europe.
    So I am not surprised by California’s move. I am appalled but not surprised. But this move puts the State directly in the abortion and contraception business not only on the Medicaid end, but on the voluntary funding end.
    And we have to remember that, in addition to California’s newest extinction protocol, the State has a genuinely evil and mentally imbalanced Governor, Jerry Brown, whose mind and reasoning resembles the remains of a dissected fetal pig!
    Jerry Brown = California’s Justin Trudeau!
