Over 25,000 Signatures Gathered Urging Aggressive Enforcement of the Reproductive FACT Act

Local PPNorCal Activists Delivering Signatures in Support of Enforcement of the Reproductive FACT Act

On March 15, 2016, local Planned Parenthood Northern California Action Fund activists delivered petitions signed by more than 25,000 supporters of Planned Parenthood Northern California Action Fund, NARAL Pro-Choice California, UltraViolet and Courage Campaign urging the Eureka City Attorney and Humboldt County Counsel to aggressively enforce the Reproductive FACT Act.

The Reproductive FACT Act protects community health by requiring licensed pregnancy centers to notify patients about state programs for affordable reproductive health care and requires unlicensed centers to disclose that they are not licensed medical providers. The bill, authored by Asm. David Chiu and Asm. Autumn Burke, was supported by Planned Parenthood Affiliates of California and sponsored by NARAL Pro-Choice California, Attorney General Kamala Harris and Black Women for Wellness. It was signed into law last year, but anti-reproductive health groups are trying to block it.
