California forces Christians to disobey own beliefs

California’s Gov. Jerry Brown has signed a compelled speech plan into law that orders faith-based organizations to refer women to abortionists – even though the same idea was tried earlier in New York – and failed.

Brown’s signature on AB 775 just days ago already has triggered a series of lawsuits, because it forces religious pregnancy clinics to tell women and girls that California has public programs to provide immediate – and free or low-cost – abortions.

Officials with the Pacific Justice Institute announced on Monday the filing of lawsuits in both southern and northern California on behalf of clinics.

Those organizations provide free medical services and counseling “as an alternative option to abortion to women facing unwanted pregnancies,” the organization said.

“Forcing a religious pro-life charity to proclaim a pro-abortion declaration is on its face an egregious violation of both the free speech and free exercises clauses of the First Amendment,” said Brad Dacus, chief of the institute.

“We will not rest until this government mandate is completely halted.”

The complaint explains the law forces Christian medical clinics to give to women a message with which they profoundly disagree.

“The content of the government message memorialized in AB 775 directly contradicts the foundational religious principles upon which A Woman’s Friend operates, as well as the message it conveys to its clients regarding abortion,” the complaint explains. “As a result, A Woman’s Friend is subject to imminent adverse enforcement action against it by defendant.”

The law’s message is, “California has public programs that provide immediate free or low-cost access to comprehensive family planning services (including allo FDA-approved methods of contraception), prenatal care, and abortion for eligible women. To determine whether you qualify, contact the county social servicdes office at (insert the telephone number].”

It also requires the message not only be handed out but also posted on the walls of waiting rooms – in a specified size of type and size of sign.

The clinic, A Woman’s Friend, “offers, and will continue to offer, to women and girls a variety of services at its clinic. Said services include medical consultations, pregnancy testing, ultrasound examinations and medical referrals. The plaintiff also provides education related to sexually transmitted diseases and infections, informations and abortion procedures, prenantal education, nutrition information and fetal development education.

“They also provide Bible-based post abortion emotional and spiritual healing and recovery courses, and other practical support related to pregnancy.”

It does not, the complaint explains, “counsel girls and women to obtain abortions.”

“A Woman’s Friend holds the bibilically based conviction that human life is a precious gift of immeasurable value given by God and that the taking of innocent human life by abortion is evil and a sin.”

The second organization cited in the complaint is the Crisis Pregnancy Center of Northern California, which offers services similar to A Woman’s Friend.

For both, the complaint states, “The requirement that plaintiffs disseminate the state of California’s message for which the clinic disagrees violates its rights under the First Amendment to the United States Constitution, as made applicable to the state through the Fourteenth Amendment. The law mandates speech that plaintiffs would not otherwise make.”

It continues, “At a minimum, the act unconstitutionally compels plaintiffs to speak [a] message that they have not chosen, with which they do not agree, and that distract, and detract from, the messages they have chosen to speak.”

The action seeks a judgment that the law is unconstitutional and cannot be enforced.

“The context of delivering this government message is the center of a public debate over the morality and efficacy of abortion, for which these clinics provide alternatives,” the lawsuit reads.

WND reported only this summer the resolution to a similar fight in New York.

At the time, constitutional attorney Herbert W. Titus of William J. Olson, P.C. told WND that according to the First Amendment, you “can’t be forced to carry someone else’s message.”

In New York, the 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals said the state could require crisis pregnancy centers to disclose whether they have a licensed medical provider on staff but not whether the center provides abortions or referrals, because that runs afoul of the First Amendment.

The ruling was left untouched by the Supreme Court.

Titus, who has taught constitutional law, common law and other subjects for decades at several universities, said it’s “not the government’s business to force anybody to carry the message of anyone else.”

“That is certainly what’s being done here.”

Thomas Jefferson, he noted, described that very action as “sinful and tyrannical.”

“It’s fairly typical of California, [which is] always on the cutting edge of making us more and more like a fascist country, in which the state determines what we can say and what we can’t say,” Titus told WND.

Titus also has served as a trial attorney and special assistant U.S. attorney with the Department of Justice. He holds degrees from Harvard and the University of Oregon and for several years had his own daily radio program. He has testified on constitutional issues before Congress and state legislatures.

The California bill makes no attempt at accommodation

‘Go Home, Go Golf!’ Obama’s hostile greeting in Roseburg shows THIS town knows how to protest

BY  FOR BIZPACREVIEW.COM

The good folks of Roseburg, Oregon didn’t exactly roll out the red carpet and play “Hail to the Chief” for President Barack Obama’s Friday afternoon visit to the survivors and grieving families of the Umpqua Community College shooting.

In fact, many were downright hostile.

Hundreds of people showed up — some openly carrying — with signs telling the president what they would prefer him to do, as they lined the streets to greet the motorcade.

Breaking 911 tweeted a photo that got a lot of response:

OBAMA GO HOME

 

Kelsey Grammer Dons Controversial Pro-Gun, Anti-Abortion T-Shirt

BY DANIEL NUSSBAUM FOR BREITBART.COM

KELSEY

Controversial.” “Bizarre.” “Outrageous.”

Kelsey Grammer took a strong pro-life, pro-2nd Amendment stand with his wardrobe choice this week.

The Frasier actor’s wife Kayte posted a photo to her Instagram page Wednesday showing Grammer wearing a T-shirt from pro-life organization Abort73.com.

The T-shirt’s message, referring to abortion: “Would it bother us more if they used guns?”

On its website, the Abort73.com organization, founded by the Christian Loxafamosity Ministries, describes its mission to “creatively and comprehensively educate students about the injustice of abortion, and provide them with simple tools to help pass that education along to others.”

Kayte posted a photo of herself wearing the same T-shirt last week, with the caption “#standwithbabies.”

Unsurprisingly, Grammer’s T-shirt choice sharply divided Twitter:

Of course, the “pro-choice” community also had their say:

@KelseyGrammer you drunken, adulterous. The world would be a better place if your were aborted. With or without a gun… It’s never to late.

— joe mangipano (@joebtg) October 9, 2015

I don’t like Kelsey Grammer anymore.

— Callie Mills (@justsnackss) October 9, 2015

A representative for Grammer did not immediately respond to Breitbart News’ request for further comment.

Of course, Grammer’s conservative political leanings have been well-known for years. The actor founded conservative TV station RightNetwork in 2010 but the station was forced to shut down due to bankruptcy issues shortly after.

WARNING: New depression "treatment" is double the trouble

Daily Dose with Jack Harrison
If at first you don’t succeed, drug and drug again!
That’s mainstream medicine in a nutshell: Throw any and all meds you have at the patient and see what, if anything, sticks.
A bizarre new study sums up that attitude perfectly, claiming to find a new way to treat tough-to-beat depression in seniors — and it’s to just keep loading them with so many meds they’ll barely know their own names.
On the plus side, maybe they’ll also lose track of their depression.
This study focused on older folks already on antidepressants, but getting no relief.
Now, anyone with half a brain would STOP a drug that isn’t working, especially when it’s one with as many risks as an antidepressant.
But it turns out you don’t need half a brain to conduct a study. All you need is a bad idea and a government grant. So in this case, researchers armed with your tax dollars told the seniors to keep on taking the drug that didn’t work — AND, along with it, a powerful and dangerous antipsychotic medication.
They quickly declared victory when 44 percent of the patients went into remission, and urged docs to try the “two-drug approach” in depressed seniors.
But guess what? The placebo also “worked” in 29 percent of patients.
The absolute difference between the drug and the placebo is a pathetic 15 percent.
Maybe it would be worth it anyway if the drugs came with no risks. But antipsychotics aren’t safe for anyone, and they’re especially dangerous for seniors.
In the new study, a quarter of the patients on the drug became agitated and distressed, a common antipsychotic side effect, versus just one person on the placebo). And 17 percent suffered Parkinson’s-like symptoms, versus less than 2 percent of patients on the placebo.
Antipsychotic drugs can also leave you unsteady on your feet, increasing the risk of a bone-snapping fall… kill off brain cells faster than a dope habit… and even increase your risk of death.
You don’t have to face ANY of those risks to beat the blues. All you need are some time-tested brain-boosting natural remedies.
St. John’s wort will often do the trick, but check with a doctor first as it doesn’t always mix well with meds. In addition, B vitamins and the omega-3 fatty acids in fish oil can also help lift your mood without putting your life on the line.
Delivering a one-two punch to bad science,

To now in 2015 when there  35 “shall issue”, and  7 “Unrestricted” From 9 states to 42 States in about 30 years. Thanks you dumb ass libs.
