Thanks to the Right To Life League, we are informed by lawyers what the actual situation is regarding Proposition 1.
“WHY VOTE NO ON PROP 1 CALIFORNIA’S ABORTION AMENDMENT”
California’s Prop 1 is, at best, legislative virtue signaling; however, its broad grant of power may be an existential threat to public health and protection of women and children.
WHAT DOES PROP 1 SAY?
Prop 1 states: “The state shall not deny or interfere with an individual’s reproductive freedom in their most intimate decisions, which includes their fundamental right to choose to have an abortion and their fundamental right to choose or refuse contraceptives . . . .”
On its face, Prop 1 prevents the state from denying or interfering with any person’s reproductive choices, including, but not limited to abortion. But Prop 1 goes beyond abortion and contraception to protect a fundamental right to reproductive freedom. We don’t know how California state courts will interpret the scope of this sweeping, broad language, especially in light of recently passed laws such as AB 2223.
THE BROAD SCOPE OF PROP 1:
PROP 1 :
● ELIMINATES STATE OVERSIGHT OF SURROGACY, BUYING AND SELLING OF EGGS AND SPERM, AND OTHER REPRODUCTIVE TECHNOLOGIES
● ENABLES SEXUAL EXPLOITATION FOR PROFIT
● ENABLES INCEST AND POLYGAMY
● IS UNNECESSARY TO PROTECT ABORTION ACCESS IN CALIFORNIA
And VOTE NO on Proposition 1!
