Abortion advocates have managed to get some stringent laws passed in a few states now, most notably California, which force crisis pregnancy centers that provide loving alternatives to abortion to advertise—against their will and mission—that if a woman wants an abortion, she can get one by calling this phone number (with the number provided). Illinois now has this type of law, but the Thomas More Society is fighting it and has achieved a temporary victory. The Thomas More Society notes: “A July 19, 2017 preliminary injunction order by the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois declared that P.A. 99-690, ‘targets the free speech rights of people who have a specific viewpoint.’” Thomas More Society Thomas Olp joins Jerry Newcombe on Vocal Point to discuss the issue and what’s at stake. www.thomasmoresociety.org
