Some prophets indicate Heaven abhors California because of its abortion and porn industries.
Abortion Law in California
- Any pregnant female who cannot afford to pay for an abortion can request Medi-Cal services, thereby requiring taxpayers to subsidize her decision.
- Public schools are allowed to arrange for an abortion and transport a minor to an off-campus site for the procedure without parental notification or permission.
- Since the 20th week provision of the Therapeutic Abortion Act was invalidated by both Roe and Doe, a woman can get an abortion at any time during her pregnancy by invoking Roe and claiming a threat to her life or health.
- There is no requirement to keep statistics on the numbers of abortions performed, the ethnicity of the women, the number of repeat clients, and most importantly, the number and types of complications.
- There is no requirement to provide a female contemplating an abortion with medical and biological facts, with statistics regarding possible complications and health risks, or with alternatives such as adoption.
- There is no mandated waiting period between requesting and receiving an abortion.
- Two bills passed in 2013, include AB 154 which allows non-physicians such as nurses, physicians assistants, and certified midwives to perform abortions, while AB 980 de-regulated the abortion industry.
- In June 2014, the Democrat-controlled California state legislature passed and Governor Brown signed the state budget, which increased abortion funding Medi-Cal reimbursement rates by 40%, while cutting other Medi-Cal services by 10%.
Porn Industry in California
San Fernando Valley — Porn Valley — is a suburban enclave in southern California.
The hills above Hollywood have played host to a booming pornography industry since 1970. A majority of American sex films are shot there in warehouses and private homes — helping the San Fernando Valley rake in $4 billion sales in the ’90s.
San Fernando Valley is 20 to 30 miles north of Los Angeles. The location helped to create a pipeline of talent from Hollywood, including directors, crew, and actors, when they needed additional income, but adult entertainment is now leaving Los Angeles, because of the passage in late 2012 of a county law mandating condom use by performers.
Porn producers are moving to other counties in Southern California, Nevada, Florida and Eastern Europe, where they face fewer regulations. The industry has declined because of DVD sales and free porn on the Internet.
