ACTION STILL PENDING ON AB 775 and AB 1177: Both of our key Assembly Bills remain on the floor of the Senate, where no action was taken last week. We still anticipate the full Senate will vote on these two bills at any moment. You can review the bills more in depth under our Other Key Bills section below, where you will also find talking points and sample letters. It is imperative that we keep pressure on the Senators, especially in light of the video scandal involving Planned Parenthood’s despicable role in trafficking body parts they harvested from abortions.

ACTION ALERT: Both Assembly Bill (AB) 775, which forces Pregnancy Care Clinics to promote free and low-cost abortions, and AB 1177, which eliminates the requirement that abortion clinics have written transfer agreements with nearby hospitals, are due for a vote at any time. They remain on the floor of the state Senate where leadership has yet to call them for a final vote. Please contact your Senator immediately. We have included talking points and sample letters, which you can find at the end of This Week Inside the Capitol. READ MORE

URGENT: Later today, California state senators are scheduled to vote on AB 775, the “Bully Bill” that would force pro-life pregnancy centers to refer their clients to abortion clinics that participate in the same type of fetal harvest revealed in the recent video exposé by The Center for Medical Progress. We urge you to IMMEDIATELY call your state senator and ask them to oppose AB 775! READ MORE

As legislators continue their summer recess, the pernicious campaign to legalize physician-assisted suicide in California was handed another defeat.

The suit, involving three patients and a doctor, is one of two filed in California. The second case involves a Bay Area leukemia patient. READ MORE
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
