Chemical Abortion Bill SB 24 has passed the California Senate and legislative committees
Chemical Abortion Experience
Watch what a Chemical Abortion Pill experience is like for women in this clip from the movie Unplanned.  Surely, you cannot be silent.  Surely, you cannot vote for politicians who support this horrific SB 24. 
The movie Unplanned can now be ordered on DVD!  Here is the special offer from 40 Days for Life.  

along  predictable party-line votes, with Democrats voting FOR ABORTION and Republicans voting FOR LIFE.  

Unfortunately, we cannot expect a different outcome on these critically important life-and-death votes, when the state legislature is comprised of 3/4 pro-abortion Democrats. We need to focus on electing pro-life people to office, with the California Primary March 3rd!

The pro-abortion Democratic party here in California has tried to destroy our life-affirming Pregnancy Clinics and attacked the Catholic Church through SB 360, seeking to destroy the Seal of Confession.  Read also about how the California Democrat Party partners with Planned Parenthood to promote pornographic "sex ed" material and how the largest teacher's union endorsed abortion. 

Now is the time to organize for the 2020 elections! 
We must help elect political leaders who will protect life! 

We must never promote or vote for any pro-abortion political party, politician or candidate!  You can find the California Democratic Party Platform on abortion here.

Democratic Presidential Candidates Pledge their strong support for Abortion at Planned Parenthood Action Fund Forum 

You can watch the 20 Democratic candidates for President at the recent Planned Parenthood forum, as they exuberantly promote more and more abortion, including abortion through all nine months of  pregnancy.  

Vote for LIFE! The National Right to Life Committee has compiled this comprehensive comparison of the 2020 Presidential Candidates' position on abortion.  The California Presidential Primary will be March 3rd, 2020, less than eight months from now!

Here is the link for a more clear, larger,  and readable chart, comparing the Presidential candidates on abortion, which you can share with your friends, family, and church.
