Now is the time to re-double our efforts to end abortion in California, where 1/5 of all US abortions take place.  The Senate vote on SB 320, which will require our UC/CSU Student Health Centers to become Abortion Clinics will either take place this morning or early next week, so please call these ten CA Senators and ask them to “Vote NO on SB 320”.  Here is the video of our Californians for Life testimony in the Senate Appropriations Committee last week.   Your voice is making an impact on the hearts and minds at the capitol!  Here is the Californians for Life Letter of Opposition to SB 320 for the Appropriations Committee.

Please call all ten of these Senators saying “Vote NO vote on SB 320”.  It will take just a few minutes. Even if you called previously, it is important we call once again as the vote is imminent:

Jessica was a student at Sac State when she found out she was pregnant.  See Channel 13 story! Fortunately, she received the help she needed, rather than abortion and her son is now 6 years old!

1. Senator Ben Hueso (D) Chula Vista, Imperial Valley, El Centro (916) 651-4040.  Democrat Senator Hueso represents a very strongly Catholic Hispanic pro-life district, but tragically he has a 100% rating from Planned Parenthood.  Please call him and ask him to vote “No on SB 320”.

2. Senator Anthony Portantino (D) Glendale, San Dimas, Pasadena (916) 651-4025, Senator Portantino is a member of the Italian Catholic Federation at St. Bede Catholic Church in La Canada and church usher but very egregiously, he has a 100% Planned Parenthood voting record.   Please call Senator Portantino to “Vote No on SB 320”.

3. Senator Bill Dodd
 (D) Napa, Vacaville, Vallejo (916) 651-4003 The Dodd family is a well-known Catholic family from Napa, yet very tragically, Senator Dodd has a 100% Planned Parenthood voting record.  Please call Senator Dodd and ask him to “Vote No on SB 320”.  

4. Senator Jim Beall (D) San Jose, Campbell (916) 651-4015 Senator Beall is Catholic with a terrible 100% Planned Parenthood voting record.     Please call Senator Beall and ask him to “Vote No on SB 320”. 

5.  Senator Bob Wieckowski (D) Fremont, Hayward (916) 651-4010.  Senator Wieckowski is Catholic with a atrocious 100% Planned Parenthood voting record.   Please call Senator Wieckowski and ask him to “Vote No on SB 320”. 

6. Senator Anthony Cannella (R) Salinas, Merced, Ceres  (916) 651-4012.  
Senator Cannella is a Republican from the Central Valley who voted for the pro-abortion license plate bill.  Please call him and encourage Senator Cannella to vote for life this time, “NO on SB 320”.

7. Senator Henry Stern (D) Simi Valley, Thousand Oaks, Malibu (916) 651-4027. Senator Stern is relatively new to the Senate and among the youngest Senators in the building.  Please call him.

8. Senator Steven Bradford (D) Inglewood, San Pedro (916) 651-4035 100% Planned Parenthood voting record and endorsement.   Abortion disproportionately ends the lives of African American babies.     Please encourage Senator Bradford to “Vote No on SB 320”.
9. Senator Robert Hertzberg (D) Van Nuys (916) 651-4018 has a 100% Planned Parenthood voting record and does fundraising for Planned Parenthood. 

10. Senator Mike McGuire (D) San Rafael, Santa Rosa, Eureka (916) 651-4002 has a 100% Planned Parenthood voting record and does fundraising for Planned Parenthood. 

SB 320 does not help women like Jessica, who are pregnant as a student on campus and in need of resources. SB 320 only pushes abortion, abortion, and more abortion.  For the 60 million children killed by abortion, please make these ten calls.
