Planned Parenthood is sweating bullets after what three Churches discovered in secret emails

60

California is a disaster thanks to the Left’s total control of state government.

With leftists’ stranglehold on the state, Planned Parenthood has realized their dreams in the Golden State.

But what three churches unearthed could bring the abortion giant to its knees.

The cultural wreckage that the Left has inflicted on California is staggering.

But even in liberal California, there are millions of people who still uphold traditional values.

Nevertheless, in 2014 the California Department of Managed Health Care issued a mandate forcing all health insurance plans, including those of Churches and other Christian organizations, to fund abortion.

Three California churches — Foothill Church in Glendora, Calvary Chapel Chino Hills in Chino, and The Shepherd of the Hills Church in Porter Ranch — slapped a lawsuit against the Department of Managed Health for violation of federal conscience law only to be ruled against by a federal judge.

But after the Churches’ attorneys uncovered emails showing that California government officials issued the mandate at the behest of Planned Parenthood, the case is heading back to court.

LifeNews.com reports:

As revealed in e-mails that Alliance Defending Freedom attorneys who represent the churches discovered, the agency issued its mandate in response to specific demands from Planned Parenthood. Those demands asked agency officials to implement a “fix” requiring the health plans of religious organizations to include coverage for abortion, regardless of moral or conscientious objections and despite state recognition up to that point that religious groups shouldn’t be subject to such requirements.


“The government shouldn’t be forcing churches to pay for abortion, and it is shameful and inappropriate that the government did so in this case at the bidding of Planned Parenthood,” said ADF Legal Counsel Jeremiah Galus. “California officials are required to follow the law and legal precedent, not the dictates of groups that have an axe to grind against religious organizations that don’t share their views on abortion. We are asking the 9th Circuit to strike down this obviously unconstitutional mandate.”

“No state agency anywhere has the right to demand that church health insurance plans contain this kind of coverage, which clearly violates these churches’ most sincerely held religious beliefs,” added ADF Senior Counsel Erik Stanley, director of the ADF Center for Christian Ministries. “The state has no business implementing Planned Parenthood’s scheme to force religious groups to act contrary to their own pro-life beliefs under the threat of massive penalties if they don’t comply.”

In the lawsuit, Foothill Church v. Rouillard, ADF attorneys represent Foothill Church in Glendora, Calvary Chapel Chino Hills in Chino, and The Shepherd of the Hills Church in Porter Ranch.

The fact that officials with the State of California’s supposed health insurance watchdog colluded with Planned Parenthood to force conservative Christian organizations to pay for abortion isn’t that surprising.

But with the revelation of emails proving left-wing California government officials are tied at the hip with Planned Parenthood, the courts should do the right thing and protect freedom of conscience of these religious organizations.

What do you think?

Should abortion be banned?

Let us know what you think in the comments section.

  1. Absolutely, abortion should be banned in California and the other states. The government should not be permitted to force or allow the murder of innocent babies.

    • Maybe if the 60 million abortions in the US since Roe v Wade was passed did not happen we would NOT be looking for people from foreign countries to come to America for jobs or welfare benefits. Talk about “unintended consequences”. But then all the illegal immigrants vote democrat so democrats will still be looking for votes. Trump has the authority to shut down immigration completely. Why doesn’t he just do it??? do

      • Not only did the Roe Vs Wade murder 60 million or more innocent lives in the 60’s we were told 2 children per family was the right thing to do to control the world population from overtaking our resources. Another wrong decision made by government in an attempt to control God given rights.

        As for President Trump shutting down immigration completely I think he has done as much as he can without legal battles that could be crippling to his administration. He has most recently said we are full. No more immagration until we can get this under control so I will wait and see where this ends up.

        • With infanticide, comes the need for illegal aliens to populate the country…
          there would exist zero need for ‘illegal people willing to do what Americans are not’ excuse.
          Veritably there are Social leaders quite willing and actively participating in governmental control of the population with murder of the babies and finding workers from other countries.

      • Maxx not really as most abortions are by those on welfare and druggies so don’t look for workers in that group.

        • Those babies could be saved and adopted. We fight all the time to help those who are addicted and call them unfortunate people with an illness, why don’t we fight to save the babies they murder? Are you saying that people on welfare and druggies are not worth saving?

    • TOTALLY, on DEMANDING, THAT, THE ‘MURDER’, OF ‘LIVING, HUMAN BEINGS’-BE ‘ELIMINATED FOREVER, IN THE USA! HOPEFULLY, THE ENTIRE WORLD! WOMEN, ARE THE ONE’S, TO ‘BE HELD RESPONSIBLE’-IT IS UP TO THEM, TO DECIDE TO, ENGAGE IN SEX OR NOT! IF SO, ‘GET PROTECTION’! BIRTH CONTROL, LAPAROSCOPY, TYING TUBES, ABSTENTION! WOMEN CANNOT, ‘COUNT ON MEN’-TO ‘PROTECT THEM’! IT IS UP TO THE WOMAN! NOW, ‘YOU PEOPLE’-WISH TO BE CONSIDERED EQUAL AND/OR ABOVE, MEN-THEN DO IT! TAKE CARE OF ‘YOUR OWN CARE’! DON’T WAIT TO GET PREGNANT & THEN MURDER, A LIVING BEING! SICKENING!

      • Today, women think that murdering babies is a good method of birth control. Most of them don’t know any other way to prevent and unwanted pregnancy.
        That’s because they don’t want to know. They think murdering a baby is the cheapest and easiest method of birth control.

    • Very, VERY good, Jim.. what in Hell are the demorats thinking.. MURDER THE BABIES??? People of such approval should be SHOT on the spot for they are delivering APPROVAL FOR MURDER ACROSS THE BOARD FOR PEOPLE OF ALL AGES!!!

    • 1000% AGREED THEY DO NOT BELONG IN ANYTHING TELLING PEOPLE HOW TO LIVE AND BREATHE MUCH LESS MURDER INNOCENT BABIES. IF THATS THE CASE THEN WHAT IS THE DEFINITION OF MURDER? BETTER START LETTING ALL THESE INNOCENT PEOPLE OUT OF JAIL THEN.

  2. Taxpayers shouldn’t have to pay for abortion. I’m glad to see we may be headed in the right direction.

    • Yvonne you either pay for abortions or a lifetime of welfare as the majority of abortions are by those on welfare.

  3. Odd that the Democrats still want abortion to be the spear in holding the Black people down yet they claim the Black vote. “Useful Idiots” as the Dems say. Problem is Black America is barely discovering how they have been used and abused!

    • We’re waking up. There are still many white, AA, and Hispanic and more falling for the lies. The negative press wants folks of different races to keep at each other so that we won’t pay attention to what they are doing, endeavoring to destroy America from the inside.
      The black folks I know including myself voted for trump. I visited Hollywood last year and walked into a crowded tourist hat shop and asked for a MAGA hat and dared folks not to like it. No one objected. More folks are seeing the truth. That’s why CNN’s viewership is down. The Dems want you all to believe we’re stupid. Soros owns the aforementioned news station and he hates Trump and tells his puppets in the newsroom to keep lying on Trump if they want a paycheck.
      Republicans did more for AA than Dems in the past. Check your history. The Dems don’t really care about minority’s. KKK came from Dems party. But they lie and say they care. They just want power and will do anything to get it. Deception is their way.
      In the end, love conquers hate, and truth will come to fruition in the end. Continue to pray, believe and speak out to make others aware of the truth.

    • That COMMANDMENT correctly translated is “SHALL NOT MURDER!”
      ABORTION is HOMICIDE and homicide not justified is MURDER.
      Inconvenience is not justification for homicide.
      George

        • Henry and Amy, what George actually means is that, when you take a life – when one kills – of a completely helpless human being, who has done no wrong, who is totally innocent and who has no means of defense, the killing becomes MURDER! Yes, the Bible does say “THOU SHALL NOT KILL” but there are killings and there are killings; some of them are MURDERS! I am sure you understand the difference. Thank you for your contribution and may our dear Lord bless you both.

  4. I can’t believe I’m seeing the day where America is permitting killing babies in the womb and after being born.
    Evil certainly exists and it walks among us.

    • I encourage all people of even average intelligence to read David Kupelian’s
      book: “The Marketing of Evil.” He lays out the plans devised by Satan, himself,
      that legislators of the left and liberal bent are following to the letter: to twist
      every concept of truth and decency into a pretzel of deceit. It will open your
      eyes to the evil at our doors. We must NOT bow to the horrendous clamors
      of the insanity of abortion (murder), parody marriages, cult worship and
      everything else that goes against the very laws of nature. God help us!

      • Frank Leupp, Thank you very much for your suggestion. I will definately get the book and read it> The Lord’s blessings on you.

      • Check out Soros’ book International Government. It’s all there and the Dems are following to the tee.
        One World Government. The Dems will bring it to fruition if we stay silent.

          • That satan formally took over the democratic party was during the last democratic presidential caucus. They formally removed GOD from their platform of core beliefs and officially became the godless party.

  5. God bless the poor poor babies, those demoncraps are 100% pure and horrible heartless evil. If only they had been aborted the world would be a better place. Or even better if they were viciously murdered like they want to do to them now.

    • You are 100% correct; if all for abortions had been aborted, we would not be arguing about
      killing innocent babies because of the women’s lack of responsibility and causing sin in their lives.
      No matter how many laws they pass to make abortions legal at any time of pregnancy or
      after birth, it will never be approved by God, the one who has the last say so of our eternal destiny.
      Lord drive out the evil in America. IJNA

  6. The article (I feel) is misleading.
    It reads that a few churches were mandated to fund abortion in their healthcare, against their beliefs.
    Later, their attorneys found emails showing the “mandate” from their state government came at the request of planned parenthood.
    The ending, “What do you think? Should abortion be banned?” doesn’t actually seem like the subject to me.
    The subject is “Should the government be able to ORDER abortion rights on churches ?” or a more frightening if you think about it, “Should planned parenthood have any say on how our government decides healthcare?”

    • Cerberus >> A Correction: You stated, “It reads that a few churches were mandated to fund abortion in their healthcare, against their beliefs.”

      You misread and misquoted the article which said, “… in 2014 the California Department of Managed Health Care issued a mandate forcing ALL (not a few) health insurance plans, including those of Churches and other Christian organizations, to fund abortion.”

      Three churches felt that this was unconstitutional and apparently had the financial ability to challenge the mandate. They lost “to be ruled against by a federal judge.”

      Now they are challenging that decision.

      I believe your comments “Should the government be able to ORDER abortion rights on churches ?” and “Should planned parenthood have any say on how our government decides healthcare?” are bull’s eyes and on topic for the article! Those reasons are why there is the new lawsuit!

    • Not quite correct. The mandate was for all health insurers to cover abortions. The 3 churches filed the suit.

  7. Abortion is deliberate murder of human beings, those who can least protect themselves against a society gone completely insane.

  8. I think that the Leftist government in California be banned. If they could hold a referendum, free of rigged voting, they could probably solve a lot of California’s problems.

  9. Abortion is just a fancy word for the murder of, yet-to-be-born, children. Murder is against the law, so abortion is too. God will have His revenge on those that commit this unbelievable crime. But we need to punish them while here, on earth. YES, abortion and infanticide should be outlawed. It should be punishable by, a life for a life. Warn them, then punish them when you catch them. There are ways to “fix” an “unwanted” pregnancy. Many people would give everything they have to adopt a beautiful baby boy or girl. Some have big enough hearts to adopt babies with health problems. Abortion is definitely not the only way.

  10. “Planned Parenthood” is nothing less than Satan at work. To be accurate their title should read “No Planned Parenthood”. The government of California is totally ditzy. Instead of sending missionaries to the far reaches of the world, they need them in California. Let us pray for a world-wide re-awakening to the truths found in the Holy Scriptures. —

  11. California State officials did not collude with Planned Parenthood they CONSPIRED. When to or more people discuss a plan of action they are colluding; if those same people’s plan is to do something negative or harmful to other people they are conspiring. This is conspiring (an unlawful action).

  12. With the Exception of Medical Emergencies, All Abortion’s should be BANNED ! Elective Abortions, to me, are merely a simply case of “Infanticide! Legalized Murder! Too compound this Arrogance, Planned Parenthood EXPECTS Funding! Hypocritical times TWO! There should be more planning, The night before as opposed to the night After the Fact! Grow Up, Girls!

  13. Anna. Government should not be funding agencies, organizations, money making businesses or groups of any kind in the practice of abortion. It has been known from the beginning of recorded history there are women who use abortion as contraception. It’s been widely known young unmarried girls use abortion, some out of shame, others out of fear to keep from family and friends the result of unsafe sex. There needs to be a sanctuary for women who birth babies with severe defects since many of these birth mothers who, at the time, cannot care for a child. Give the child possibility to live at all. Selling new borns body parts should be a crime punishable by the death sentence for any seller. A newborn should not be a commodity for sale by the part. Stop the money flow; abortion is not about women’s rights it’s a business!

    • No. There are some very conservative areas in California and much beauty. Instead, round up all dems and illegals and send them to Mexico.

  14. The way I look at it they already killed the child that could have found a cure for childhood diabetes or perhaps heart disease or any one of our major health problems. They could have been the crucial factor in saving peoples lives by inventing new technology. We could have already had a man to Mars or they could have even help in the peace treaty. Who really knows, perhaps they could have even been President and make great strides into healing America unlike number 44.

  15. Is the Muslim religion bound by the same rules? I’ve never heard them complain that they have to comply to Planned Parenthood’s edict and they are family oriented. I’ve asked this question before. Someone said that the Muslim religion is exempt because of their religious beliefs. How can one religion be exempt and another not. Isn’t that discrimination? Also, in the ninth circuit court district I know that the Koran can be read in the schools yet you can’t bring a Bible. Again discrimination. Seems the attack is focused against believers of Jesus. Is it because He’s the Only One who is real.

  16. IT IS INTERESTING TO NOTE AND READ (AS IF WE ARE RACING FOR A PRIZE) COMMENTS ABOUT “THEIR EVIL GOVERNOR”, COLORADO WINS THAT RACE HANDS DOWN. JARED POLIS IS DESTROYING OUR WONDERFUL STATE PIECE BY PIECE – BUT MOST WORRISOME IS OUR EDUCATION SYSTEM, BOYS AND GIRLS – THERE IS NO OTHER GENDER.

  17. No one KNOWS the number of abortions done in California, because they stopped reporting the numbers over 5 years ago. So, when those yearly numbers of abortions are “touted”, they are Incomplete! BTW, another Liberal state (who it is I can’t remember) has also followed California in NOT reporting the numbers of abortions done in one year.

  18. Yes, abortion should be banned. It is the same as murder. Tell me the difference so YES it should be the same punishment as murder.

  19. Jarad Polis is tearing up Colorado, that is why we moved out…won’t pay for the taxes …if you do not like the place, why support it…just leave…it is their loss in tax dollars along with their idea of stepping on 2nd Amendment, abortions that comply with legal murders along with other garbage that taxes applies…Colorado has a dark veil in its skies now
    There is no turning back now the pandora box is open…sad, very sad….

  20. In my opinion after the 9th agrees with Ca and PP they will have
    to venture off to the US Supreme Court!

    Frankly I do not think Californians should be permitted to reproduce!

  21. Wow, 60 million souls are terminated before their time. Adolf Hitler killed just 6 million, Joseph Stalin killed just 12 to 15 million, Pol Pot killed around 2 million and we as a civilized nation thinks that they are evil. Thing is that many of the victims were adults, not babies for the most parts. What hypocrisy that we indwell with forever in our legacy. May GOD have mercy on our souls when it comes our turn comes before the throne.

  22. My son is adopted and his wife is adopted. His wife is pregnant and the baby is due in September, praise God. I write music so in 1982 I prayed that God would give me a song. We were in the process of trying to adopt a child so I became very aware of the abortion issue and the length of time it took to adopt a child. This is what I got : He would have had brown hair, he would have had brown eyes, but no one knows what he looks like, You see his mother doesn’t want him, his father doesn’t need him, he does not fit into their lives, The clinics say don’t keep him, come in tomorrow, this won’t hurt very long, an acceptable procedure, what you are doing, an oh I tell you it’s not wrong. There’s a couple around the corner, the doctor has told them, You cannot have a child of your own, so now they are trying, to adopt a child, but they say the wait is so long. The patient left the clinic, but they say she’s still hurting, hurting for what she has done, and the couple around the corner, the last time I saw them, they say the wait is still long. He would have had brown hair, he would have had brown eyes, but no one knows what he looks like. My story ended better than the song. Years later we adopted a son with brown hair and brown eyes. All life is precious. For those who have abortions their is forgiveness in Jesus Christ.

  23. People of morality and TRUTH all know that a man cannot create life without a woman. A woman cannot create life without a man. God is the only one who can create a human life by using a man and a woman. God uses men and women to create life, just like he designed from the beginning. So neither the father or mother or any organization has the right to take the life that God allowed and willed to be created. He has a purpose for every life that he creates. I do believe that the democratic party in the US is one of Satan’s most heinous and evil organizations. They are lawless and hatefilled. They are never to be trusted for any reason. They lie, steal, murder, plot and deceive because they know that is what works for them to get what they want. They have no remorse or conscience about their illegal and immoral conduct and their nasty words. God is watching and he will expose them in his own time. They arrogantly snub their nose at God and dare him to respond. God has given them over to their reprobate evil minds. Satan has convinced them that God is dead and they are in the clear.. They have a great awakening coming. Sad because Satan hates God who created him and he also hates those caught in his snare. Satan knows no boundaries of evil.
