Neil Gorsuch Scores Supreme Victory Against Abortion… Liberals Stunned

California is probably the abortion capital of the nation and until the Supreme Court stepped in, certain medical establishments were allowed to aggressively advertise abortion. It’s disgusting, wrong and immoral.

Luckily that’s all gonna change now…

DailyWire reports:

On Tuesday, the justices of the Supreme Court sounded as if they are ready to shred the California law that requires pregnancy centers to notify women that the state offers subsidies for abortion.

That law was adopted in California in 2015, and forced the pregnancy centers to post a prominent notice if they had “no licensed medical provider” available. If the centers were licensed, they were forced to notify clients that the state offers “free or low-cost” contraception, prenatal care and abortion.

As The Los Angeles Times reports of the case, titled NIFLA vs. Becerra, the justices gave the California law short shrift:

Justice Elena Kagan, referring to the fact that doctors and for-profit clinics were exempt from the law, said, “If it has been gerrymandered, that’s a serious issue.” Justice Samuel A. Alito Jr. echoed that the law “has a lot of crazy exceptions. … What you’re left with is a very strange pattern, and, gee, it turns out just about the only clinics that are covered by this are pro-life clinics.”

Justice Anthony M. Kennedy saw the law as violating the laws of free speech, calling the required notice “mandating speech” that “alters the content of the message.” Justice Neil M. Gorsuch said that California has “other means to provide messages. … It’s pretty unusual to force a private speaker to do that for you under the 1st Amendment.”

After Michael P. Farris, a lawyer for the centers, said advertisements, including billboards, would have to offer the information in large print and in 13 languages, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg turned to the lawyer for California and stated, “If you have to say that, those two sentences in 13 different languages, it can be very burdensome,” she said.

The Times reported further:

“What would happen if an unlicensed center just had a billboard that said, ‘Choose Life.’ Would they have to make the disclosure?” Kennedy asked.

“Yes, your honor,” Farris replied.

“It would be 29 words, in the same size font as ‘Choose Life’?” Kennedy continued.

Yes, Farris said, “and in the number of languages required by that county.”

Kennedy said he had heard all he needed to hear. “It seems to me that means that this is an undue burden. And that should suffice to invalidate the statute,” he said.

As Politico reported, “California Deputy Solicitor General Joshua Klein acknowledged that the law might be unconstitutional in some applications, but he encouraged the justices to return the issue to the lower courts to address specific concerns involving certain plaintiffs. That did not sit well with Kennedy. “You want me to have a remand to have them tell the court what a billboard is?” Kennedy scoffed.

Only Justice Stephen G. Breyer defended the law.

Justice Sonia Sotomayor also agreed with those who found the law problematic.

The Times concluded, “By the hour’s end, it appeared the justices would vote to strike down all or at least most of the law’s mandatory disclosure provisions.”

California Is Heading To The Supreme Court Over What They Are Forcing Conservatives To Do

It must be great to be a liberal. You spend your days telling other people what to do, and then act surprised when those same people are offended.

But I’m willing to bet you’d be more surprised when those same people fight back – and no one puts up a better fight than a group of pissed-off conservatives.

Actually, I take that back – no one puts up a better fight than a group of conservatives protecting the weak. And there’s no group more vulnerable than the unborn. Especially in California, where they can be slaughtered at will.

It’s also the state that decided that pro-life clinics must advertise for abortion clinics…in their own waiting rooms.

Congratulations California libs – you just found a group of pissed-off conservatives willing to fight back.

The Daily Caller reports:

The U.S. Supreme Court agreed to hear a challenge to a California law requiring pro-life crisis pregnancy centers to post information about state-funded abortions.

A coalition of pro-life groups challenging the law say it explicitly targets and coerces religious counseling centers into pro-abortion expression.

The law requires crisis pregnancy clinics to post a bulletin informing patients that the state offers subsidized abortion access.

“California has public programs that provide immediate free or low-cost access to abortion for eligible women. To determine whether you qualify, contact the county social services office.”

I don’t have words for this.

The fact that liberals are somehow surprised by conservative reaction here shows just how stupid they are. Imagine how outraged liberals would be if schools were forced to tell homosexual students that some faiths believe there are alternatives to being gay. You’d have rioting in the streets.

And yet, when it comes to protecting the unborn, the state sees no problem with telling young mothers about ‘alternatives.’ The hypocrisy here is piled high.

Luckily, a group of sharp legal conservative minds has tackled the issue.

The case is the second of the new term involving a conservative group’s challenge to a liberal state law.

“It’s unthinkable for the government to force anyone to provide free advertising for the abortion industry. The state shouldn’t have the power to punish anyone for being pro-life. Instead, it should protect freedom of speech and freedom from coerced speech.”

California’s had a tough time fighting these conservative lawyers. And the state now has to face down SCOTUS – and with a newly appointed Neil Gorsuch within it.

It doesn’t look good for the lib state.
