This state just made it illegal to collect evidence against Planned Parenthood

At the request of Planned Parenthood, pro-abortion California legislators have passed an anti-speech law so draconian even liberal stalwarts like the ACLU and Los Angeles Times are concerned.

Hoping to shut down efforts by pro-life activists to publicize their illegal sale of baby body parts, the California state legislature passed legislation making it a crime to record “health care providers,” even if it the recordings reveal criminal activity.

People who record illegal activity by Planned Parenthood face a $10,000.00 fine and a year in prison.

Assembly Bill 1671 was a direct response to undercover tapes released by the Center for Medical Progress showing Planned Parenthood officials and employees illegally harvesting organs from dead babies and selling them at profit.

It was sponsored by Assembly Jimmy Gomez, who has taken $13,500.00 in campaign contributions from Planned Parenthood.

"Planned Parenthood still can't own up to the fact that their senior leadership was caught on camera talking about which places on a late-term baby to crush or not crush in order to harvest the most valuable body parts for sale," CMP president David Daleiden told LifeSiteNews.

"So, instead, Planned Parenthood is trying to make it a crime to see the evidence," Daleiden said.

But he’s not the only one disturbed by the pro-abortion bill.

Even liberals are disgusted by politicians’ brazen attempt to protect the abortion industry by arresting whistleblowers.

The California Newspaper Publishers Association warns the bill “potentially criminalizes speech.”

“We've been trying to help them find a way to accomplish their goals while not infringing on the First Amendment or creating liabilities for media,” said CNPA legal counsel Nikki Moore.

"The same rationale for punishing communications of some preferred professions or industries could as easily be applied to other communications [such as] law enforcement, animal testing labs, gun makers, lethal injection drug producers, the petroleum industry and religious sects," the ACLU of California warns in a letter to Gomez.

Even the Los Angeles Times’ editorial board called out their friends in Planned Parenthood for their fascist bill.

“Why a healthcare provider merits special protection even when discussing things that don’t involve patient privacy is mystifying...this measure would heap more criminal and civil penalties on making a secret recording — an act that’s already prohibited by state law, even when done in the public interest — simply to satisfy an interest group popular among Sacramento Democrats...The potential for unanticipated and unwelcome consequences is huge,” the Times writes.

Will other states follow suit?

And with liberals pushing anti-speech legislation and regulations on all fronts, will it soon become virtually illegal to be conservative?
