The bill was strongly advocated by Planned Parenthood following a series of undercover videos released last summer by theCenter for Medical Progress, which claimed that the organization was unlawfully trafficking in fetal tissue.Sick and twisted. Such evil. Nine fold increase in "violence"? I think these people have perfected the ability to LIE.
"After the video smear campaign last summer, we experienced a ninefold increase in violence against our providers and our health centers," Beth Parker, chief legal counsel of Planned Parenthood Affiliates of California, told the LA Times.
"With the Internet and the tremendous wildfire nature in which news can be spread now through social media, we need to have a crime against distribution by those in particular who did the illegal recording," Parker said. "A slap on the hand of a $2,500 fine isn't sufficient."
State Sen. Hannah-Beth Jackson (D-Santa Barbara) introduced the bill, commenting, "The nation is looking to California to take the lead on protecting access to care and to the doctors who provide that access. This measure will protect reproductive health doctors from violence and intimidation."
