A pair of bills aimed at compelling pregnancy help organizations in California and Illinois to post and disseminate a government-sponsored message directing clients on where and how to obtain an abortion were both stalled Monday, with respective legislative bodies holding the bills' reading and voting for later dates.
As of 5 p.m. Monday, May 18, neither bill has been rescheduled. California's Assembly Bill 775, which originally had its third reading and subsequent vote pushed back from last week to Monday, was not read on the Assembly Floor during today's session.
Meanwhile, a series of nine procedural challenges by Illinois Rep. Peter Breen (R-Lombard) has delayed the second reading of an amendment to the state's Health Care Right of Conscience Act, which would require all pro-life healthcare providers, including physicians and pregnancy centers, to offer government-specified information on abortion.
