The California State Assembly on Thursday passed what pro-life advocates have called a radical measure that they've dubbed "The Infanticide Bill."
The bill, known as AB 2223, was passed by a vote of 48-21 in the Democrat-controlled Assembly. It now goes to the state Senate.
The measure is promoted by the state's "Future of Abortion Council," a coalition of 40 pro-abortion groups whose goal is "to Protect, Strengthen and Expand Abortion Services in California." The abortion council is currently advocating for nine different abortion expansion bills.
Author and popular pastor Francis Chan recently hit back at the pro-choice mantra "my body, my choice," urging people to pause and consider that "nothing is yours" and the Lord created everything.
Chan, 54, referenced several Scriptures and biblical stories during his time on stage at The Send, a Christian event held earlier this month in Kansas City, Missouri, as The Christian Post reported.
Among those Scriptures was Isaiah 66:2 (ESV), which reads: "All these things my hand has made, and so all these things came to be, declares the Lord. But this is the one to whom I will look: he who is humble and contrite in spirit and trembles at my word."

"Hey, guys. I just wanted to give you a little catch-up," Garcia said in the 15-second video posted to Facebook by her father, Steven Garcia.

Veteran Navy SEAL Jimmy Graham delivered a one-word answer when asked to reveal the most powerful preventative deterrent to violent mass shootings like the one that unfolded this week in Uvalde, Texas.
"Jesus," he said without missing a beat. He then expounded on his belief America has strayed from its biblical foundations.
