California legislature passes bill to criminalize undercover videos at abortion clinics

September 09, 2016

The California state legislature has approved a bill that would make it a criminal offense to take undercover videos at abortion clinics.

The legislation, which gained easy approval in both houses of the state legislature, would ban the use of videos or private communications from any health-care institution. But the law was obviously written in response to the shocking revelations produced by pro-life activists who released undercover videos of conversations with Planned Parenthood officials, exposing their involvement in the sale of fetal tissues.

The bill will become law if it is signed by Governor Jerry Brown.

    Planned Parenthood and its cohorts in the California legislation are criminals for trying to destroy the First Amendment. Expect more of same from the left. The First and Second are what protects the rest and us.

    It's like closing the barn door after the horse has run off!

    I feel sick to my stomach at this brazen erosion of the right to expose fraud, if one is a Christian. Need a prayer storm here I think. I will start it, by asking for Mother T. to intercede.
