ACTION: Stop the BULLY BILL SB 501 SD1
While targeted specifically at non-profit pregnancy help organizations, proposed SB 501 SD1 won’t catch the pro-life community off-guard in Hawaii.  In fact, Hawaii's five pregnancy

The so-called Reproductive FACT Act would require all centers recognized as “licensed covered facilit[ies]” to post a sign that reads “This clinic does not provide abortion services or abortion referrals.  Only ultrasounds performed by qualified healthcare professionals and read by licensed clinicians should be considered medically accurate.  Hawaii has public programs that provide immediate free or low-cost access to comprehensive family planning services including all FDA-approved methods of contraception, prenatal care, and abortion for eligible women.  To apply for medical insurance coverage that will cover the full range of family planning and prenatal care services, apply on-line at mybenefits.hawaii.gov.”

Alliance Defending Freedom litigation counsel Elissa Graves blasted a similar California bill (AB775) as an “unconstitutional trampling of pro-life advocacy,” noting that “[t]hese centers fundamentally exist to provide tangible help and real alternatives to abortion to pregnant women in need” and condemning the California government for “attempting to fund and promote Big Abortion by running roughshod over the freedom of speech and conscience guaranteed to Californians and all Americans.”

ADF further noted that they have successfully helped defeat similar laws across the country. Live Action News previously covered AB 775 in April, noting that state pro-lifers have dubbed it the “Bully Bill” and that it has come even as California has waived and reduced a number of medical standards for abortion clinics.

Hawaii should NOT go down that same road.  Stop the bullying!  Act now!
