URGENT UPDATE: The Democrat-controlled Senate Appropriations Committee will hear testimony TODAY (Thursday, May 28) on Senate Bill (SB) 128, which will legalize assisted-suicide. It’s not too late to call or send faxes to individual committee members! The bill passed its first critical hearing on March 25 in the Senate Education Committee by a 6-2 vote, mostly along party lines. The exception was Senator Richard Pan (D-Sacramento), a physician, who did not vote.

Assembly Bill (AB) 775, the “Reproductive FACT Act,” which had its second reading in the Assembly last week, faces one final hurdle this week before advancing to the state Senate. That hurdle could be eclipsed shortly when the bill could receive its third reading in the Assembly. If that happens California Family Alliance, and our coalition of like-minded pro-life groups, will intensify our efforts in the Senate.
In presenting AB 775 to one of the Assembly committees a few weeks ago, its author David Chiu (D-San Francisco) argued that its sole purpose is to provide information to women in crisis pregnancies. In reality, the bill was written by the California affiliate of NARAL READ MORE

Just one day after Americans celebrated the high calling of motherhood, Sacramento legislators may vote to assault it.
The California State Assembly is poised to penalize nonprofit Pregnancy Resource Centers (PRCs) for their dedicated work in supporting women with unplanned pregnancies. Assembly Bill (AB) 775 (Chiu D-San Francisco) would force PRCs to promote and refer clients to abortion clinics. Unfortunately, AB 775 was not the only dangerous anti-life bill scheduled for a vote today. READ MORE

Ignoring pleas from over 100 citizens (and impassioned arguments by two Republican lawmakers), the Assembly Judiciary Committee voted 7-3 last Tuesday (April 28) to force Pregnancy Resource Centers (PRCs) to promote abortions in their lobbies and in all print and online advertising.

California Family Alliance (CFA) is a not-for-profit, political action organization that works in affiliation with California Family Council. CFA’s purpose is to advocate for pro-family, pro-life issues at the grassroots and legislative levels.
Because of our advocacy for and against legislative bills, ballot measures and cultural issues, CFA is registered with the IRS as a 501(c)(4) organization. This IRS status means that contributions to CFA are not tax-deductible. We rely on the gifts of families and individuals who believe California’s public policies must be researched, analyzed and communicated to the state’s citizens, in order to motivate participation in the process of government.
Similar to California Family Council, CFA limits its involvement to matters that affect innocent life, religious liberty, and the historic, traditional family, such as:
• Embryonic stem cell research
• Physician-assisted suicide and euthanasia
• Human trafficking and child protection
• Parental authority
• Educational curricula
• Alternative sexual orientation “rights”
• Same-sex “marriage”
• Rights of conscience and employment laws
• Adoption and foster care
• Fiscal responsibility
• Divorce and its consequences
