Gov. Jerry Brown Signs Bill Criminalizing Journalists Who Distribute Recordings of Abortion Providers

by Dr. Susan Berry | Breitbart  |  published on October 2, 2016

Planned ParenthoodA bill sponsored by Planned Parenthood that criminalizes the distribution of recordings of conversations with abortion providers is now law in California.

Gov. Jerry Brown signed Assembly Bill 1671 into law, making it illegal for journalists to distribute audio or video recordings of healthcare providers without their consent.

As the Los Angeles Times reports, Planned Parenthood pushed the bill through the legislature even though it is already illegal to make these types of recordings without authorization in California. The abortion business argued that further punishment was needed for distributing the materials.

Spearheaded by Assemblyman Jimmy Gomez (D-Los Angeles), the new law comes as Planned Parenthood is desperately attempting to suppress information regarding its “baby parts” scandal. Last year, undercover journalists from the Center for Medical Progress (CMP) released a series of videos exposing Planned Parenthood’s alleged practices of exchanging the tissues of babies it aborts for monetary consideration and altering the position of babies during abortion to maximize the chance of harvesting intact organs.

Opponents of the bill have expressed concern about its potential to violate the First Amendment rights of the press and to obstruct journalists’ job of providing information that is in the best interests of the public. In the case of Planned Parenthood – which receives more than half-a-billion dollars in taxpayer funds – it is in the interest of taxpayers to know if their money is spent on potentially criminal behavior, such as the sale of body parts of aborted babies for profit.

    Any organization which receives tax dollars should be exempt from any law that would punish whistleblowers. The people who released the baby parts exposes were doing the job the media should be doing. Unfortunately the mainstream media has embraced the baby slaughter industry.

    If Planned Parenthood wants to give up their federal dollars they can operate in private. Until then, their books and practices should be open for public inspection.

    In other words, it is now officially a crime to out criminals in California. Sort of a ‘Birds Of A Feather’ between California politicians and criminals. It may soon be illegal in California to have security cameras in your home of business because it may result in criminals being caught.

  • Bob

    Speech is only free when the Governor agrees with it in California. The right to death crowd can get anything passed in these bastions of ultra liberalism

  • David Tierney

    Why bother passing a law? The Democrats already have the media in their pockets.

  • Horace Milstead

    Smartest thing Linda Ronstadt ever did was leave Governor Moonbeam after she was the State of California’s “first shack job” for a while. He and the fools that support him make ‘deplorable’ look like a goal to strive for…..
