Anne O’Connor in CBN News: “This State Plans to Become America’s Abortion Destination, Paying for Exponential Increase in Abortions”

“Anne O’Connor, the vice president of legal affairs for the National Institute of Family and Life Advocates (NIFLA), calls that a false narrative. NIFLA has 147 member centers in California.
