1. Legislation.
2. Elections.
3. Money laundering.


The California state legislature is in summer recess returning to business starting August 8. It’s time to summarize and evaluate what damage the Pro Aborts have dealt to any idea of respect for (your) human life.

Since most of these are Democrat authored bills and the legislature is composed of a strong majority voting block it appears that most of the bills we have been tracking will end up on the Governor’s desk awaiting either his veto or his signature. It’s a strange day when Governor Jerry “Moonbeam” Brown is the best friend we have in Sacramento.

Please save these phone numbers for the Governor’s office: (landline) 916-445-2841, fax 916-558-2160. And use them.

SB 131, Jim Beall, (D-Campbell) Damages: Childhood Sexual Abuse: Statute of Limitations.
LOCATION: Hearing pending in Assembly Appropriations Committee.
SUBJECT: Expands the timeline for youthful victims of sexual abuse to sue for damages, i.e. sexual, physical of emotional abuse to up to 25 years following the event(s) or to the age of 30 years.

This bill sponsored by Nat’l Center for Victims of Crime is supported by a long list of stakeholder organizations. The Catholic church and its past generous settlements for claims would appear to be the main target opening up the church to continuous lawsuits by former youth claiming long ago sexual abuse by church officials.

As a perhaps planned result, church officials who should be in the forefront of opposing pro abortion bills are spending their time lobbying against this bill.

Granted, anyone would want to see justice dealt to any, especially youthful, victim of sexual abuse This bill appears, like so many in Sacramento this term, to go beyond the understanding of restorative justice to being one of downright vindictiveness.

SB 540, Mark Wyland, (R-Carlsbad), Career Technical Education: Recognition Certificates.
LOCATION: Enrollment - sitting on the Governor’s desk awaiting action.
SUBJECT: Creates a new level of graduation requirements. Awards a pupil a Career technical education certificate rather than a full credit graduation diploma. This acknowledges that a pupil is being certified as qualified to enter certain areas of the entry-level workforce for which he/she has been specifically trained.

This is a part of the new approach to partnerships between education and industry. Much has been written about the use of the school system to act as a guide or channel tagging some children as useful to certain industries while others are picked to succeed in more academically oriented pursuits. This is the compelling reason behind early pre-school.

The author is a Republican who often votes with the Democrats on bills. He typifies the RINO Republican - one who believes in more centralized governmental control of our everyday lives, such as targeting youth in their early years for usefulness to society through the classroom.

AB 926, Susan Bonilla (D-Concord), Reproductive Health and Research.
LOCATION: Enrolled.
SUBJECT: Paying women for donating their eggs (oocytes) to “science.”
This is, according to the California Catholic Conference, “tantamount to trafficking in human body parts.” Concerned Women for America refer to it as creating a “commodity” , an industry, if you will, in human eggs.

Supporters include several fertility and Cryobank groups plus several homosexual organizations and Planned Parenthood. It is rather ominous that the Gay and Lesbian community is also supporting a Sharon Quirk-Silva bill AB 912 Health Care Coverage: Fertility Preservation and Tom Ammiano bill, AB 460 (co-author Toni Atkins of SB 154) and others, that will provide “infertility” treatments to gay and lesbian couples who, though under normal circumstances might well be fertile but because of their single-sex union place themselves in the category of infertile.

AB 1266, Tom Ammiano, (D-SF), Pupil Rights: Sex-Segregated School Programs/Activities.
LOCATION: Enrolled.
SUBJECT: Requires schools to sexually desegregate bathrooms and sports programs and locker rooms, allowing access to students self-identifying as of that particular sexual gender.
This bill is not supported by any obvious parental group or affiliation. The ACLU is the lead supporter along with the CTA, the Ca. Federation of Teachers, Nat’l Assn of Social Workers, California Chapter and the San Francisco Unified School District.
At present, in some schools where there are transgendered students they have been given keys to private bathroom facilities which is highly favored by the students’ parents.

These enrolled bills need your voice of strong opposition now through letters, phone calls and faxes to the Governor’s office urging a veto.

AB 154, Tony Atkins, (D-San Diego), Abortion.
LOCATION: Set for final hearing in the Senate Appropriations Committee upon the return of the legislature to session, August 12. Hearing commences at 10:00 AM in the Burton Hearing Room (4203) at the state Capitol. All are earnestly invited to attend and register disapproval of this horrendous coarsening of regard for the over-all health of pregnant women by the abortion industry.
SUBJECT: Removing physician involvement in (apparently with their approval) and supervision of abortion, placing it in the hands of lower level medical workers, midwives, nursing assistants and nurse practitioners.
The abortion industry is moving this invasive surgical procedure which takes the life of a living human being in-utero into a position of generalized reproductive health service no different than any other out-patient service. The claim is that there is no difference in outcome between a doctor and a midwife performing abortion, the negative aspects are equal, but in truth, this is a cost cutting approach saving the cost of a physician performing abortion as compared to the lower wage paid a lesser trained medical worker.

AB 980, Richard Pan, (D-Sacramento), Primary Care Clinics; Abortion.
LOCATION. Re-referred to Senate Appropriations Committee, to be heard along with AB 154,also on opening day of the fall session of the term, August 12, in room 4203.

SUBJECT: Amended three times, the bill now will require the Dept of Public Health to re-write the building code provisions, removing any references to special regulations in the plumbing, sanitation or room size dimensions for building or remodeling clinics offering abortion services. This may be a huge additional cost to the state i.e. taxpayers.

This is a solely sponsored Planned Parenthood bill and includes the American Civil Liberties Union of California and the American College of Ob/Gyn (mainly a Planned Parenthood support lobby). It is opposed by seven pro life and or religious non-profit groups plus 12 individuals.

This bill, along with AB 154 will debase the whole reproductive care industry’s so-called concern for women, turning it into a boutique version of the former back alley, unsanitary quickie, profit driven butcher shop.

Planned Parenthood’s goal, with the aid of Richard Pan, a doctor no less, is to establish an abortion service in every for profit, street corner Primary Care Clinic, school-based clinic and Community clinic. It will further protect them from pro life demonstrators, further cut costs of maintaining the physical plant and place baby killers in the mainstream of California medicine.

AB 154 and AB 980 must still face a Senate floor vote. The bills must either be killed in the Senate Appropriations or on the floor of the Senate. A call to your local Senator’s office is much appreciated along with letters to the editor of your local papers and notices in your church bulletins to awaken the faithful to this abomination.

Run-off elections are taking place on July 23 in the San Joaquin Valley 16th Senate District between Pro Lifer, Andy Vidak and his Democrat opponent, Leticia Perez. This is the seat vacated by Michael Rubio, (D), as he moved up and out of politics and into the business community.

Perez is supported by newly elected Democrat Assemblywoman Lorenz Gonzalez, a Planned Parenthood candidate, who’s first act upon entering the legislature was to vote for AB 154.
The Vidak campaign is looking for volunteers to walk precincts and make phone calls. Phone callers may contact their local Republican headquarters to volunteer to make calls from the local headquarters.

The 52nd Assembly District in the Southern California Inland Empire area around Ontario has a run-off campaign which features a Pro Life Woman, Dorothy Pineda, (R), along with 7 Pro abort Democrat contenders and one former Republican turned Declined to State.

Ms Pineda is also looking for phone call volunteers. (909) 395-9150.
Catholic Relief Services… Maybe Not so Catholic.

On July 10, 2013, LifeSiteNews.org published a report on the donations made by Catholic Relief Services to the apparently pro-abort organization, CARE. The CARE website carries a Bill and Melinda Gates logo on its banner heading.

CARE bills itself as a leading humanitarian organization fighting global poverty. However a major portion of its “service” according to LifeSite News focuses on family planning.

According to IRS listings of CRS’s income and outgo, CRS actually receives more government funding than it does donations from the Sunday church collections. However, it apparently co-mingles the funding streams and turns around and gives the money to organizations in third-world countries which engage in family planning and abortion promotions.

Here is a quote from the July 10, 2013, LifeSite publication:

While CARE claims it "does not fund, support or perform abortions,"
in 2009 its president and CEO, Helene Gayle, appeared before a Senate
committee to urge the funding of abortions abroad by overturning the
Mexico City Policy. CARE also heavily distributes contraceptives,
including the abortifacient "emergency contraception," as part of its
development efforts. Moreover, it partners with the illegal-abortion
practitioner Marie Stopes International (page 4).

Susan Yoshihara of the Catholic Family and Human Rights Institute
(C-FAM) told LifeSiteNews last year that Gayle "is an avid advocate
for an international human right to abortion-on-demand."

Since LifeSiteNews’ coverage of CARE last summer, CARE issued a
commitment at the Gates Foundation’s London Summit on Family Planning
in which they pledged to put "reproductive rights" at the center of
their work in the area of maternal health and to make "family
planning" a priority in emergency services. Of the $13.8 million CRS
gave to CARE in 2012, nearly $9 million was dedicated to "emergency

According to the 990s, CRS gave CARE three separate grants in 2012:
$4,752,008 for "agriculture"; $8,894,703 for "emergency"; and
$233,432 for "welfare".
Texas legislator hauls in the pro abortion dough.
Texas Senator Wendy Davis made a killing (you should pardon the reference) in contributions to the tune of slightly under $1 Million in donations following her 11 hour unsuccessful filibuster attempt to stop the legislative ban on late term abortions. Sounds like she was more interested in padding her bank account than in standing up for women.

I know its the summer time, but livin’ ain’t easy right now. We human beings are under attack around the world like never before. Your efforts, energy and awareness of the issues besetting us is so important in the months ahead. Allowing these bills and others just as inimical to life, to turn into law will further embolden the anti-life groups with thoughts of easy passage of euthanasia based legislation. Truly, the life you save by today’s actions might just be your own, in the future.

Heavenly Father, with confidence and firm trust we come to you in our great need. We thank you
for answering the prayer even before we ask, because we know that it is your Holy Will.
Remove from our county the scourge of abortion. Change the minds and hearts of all who
promote this evil, or who seek abortion a a remedy. Make us willing to make the sacrifice of
prayer and penance necessary to obtain this grace from you. Heavely Father, we ask you this,
through the intercession of Mary, and in the name of Jesus, Your Son.  Amen

Take away God, all respect for civil laws, all regard for even the most necessary institutions disappears; justice is scouted; the very liberty that belongs to the law of nature is trodden underfoot; and men go so far as to destroy the very structure of the family, which is the first and firmest foundation of the social structure.
- St. Pius X, Jucunda Sane, March 12, 1904
