9th Circuit: Pro-Life Groups Must Promote Abortion

The Daily Caller reports:
The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals has upheld a law requiring pro-life pregnancy groups to promote abortion.

A three-judge panel upheld a state law which requires crisis pregnancy centers, some of which are religiously-affiliated and exist expressly to steer women away from abortion, to provide their patients information about abortion services available elsewhere. The bill was supported by California Planned Parenthood and NARAL Pro Choice America.

A number of pro-life pregnancy centers challenged the law, claiming the law forces them to promote a state-sponsored messages and infringes on their religious beliefs.

Federal court gets involved in state law: the great moments of "un-constitutionalism".
