3,000% Abortion Increase in California ? Tune In Today

We’ve changed the name of Family Matters to “I’m Glad You Said That” – Jim Minnery talks Faith & Politics. The change came about because 1) there were other Family Matters-named programs and as we grow the program, we wanted a unique brand and 2) “I’m Glad You Said That” is most often what I’m thinking when I have the privilege of interviewing such an eclectic  group of influencers every week.

Thanks for being there. Your attention to the show is very encouraging and, we hope, giving you confidence and discernment to engage your community – for Christ.


“We Have The Better Choice”

My good friend Jonathan Keller has been in the pro life arena since he was in high school. He is truly a gem in the movement and as President of the California Family Council, our sister organization, he’s about to experience an unprecedented, almost unimaginable scenario.

In light of abortion likely coming back to the states following the Dobbs decision in the summer of 2022, California Governor Gavin Newsom along with dozens of abortion providers have proposed a plan to encourage Americans to travel to California for an all expense paid trip to end the lives of their pre-born children.

According to the CFC, “the ambitious plans put forth by the California Future of Abortion Council push far past just the funding of abortions. The report includes a wish list of provisions that, if implemented, would make abortion the most funded, protected, promoted, and facilitated medical procedure in the country.”

One estimate says that the number of people coming to California from out of state to get an abortion will increase from 46,000 to to 1.4 million – a nearly 3,000% increase.

And, California taxpayers will pick up the tab for all associated expenses including the abortion, gas, lodging, transportation, child care, doula support, food, lost wages, etc.

As Jonathan notes, that means that abortion alternatives offered at pregnancy resource centers need to be amplified and expanded as never before. I’m confident my friend and colleague will be a huge part of saving out of state babies in the future.

I’m thrilled to chat with Jonathan today and hope you can tune in to the conversation.
