Attorneys with Pacific Justice Institute filed the suit in Solano County Superior Court on behalf of Alpha Pregnancy Clinics, which offers women hope and alternatives in the midst of crisis pregnancies. After Alpha negotiated with the landlord, signed the lease, and submitted the first rental check, the landlord backed out, surprising the clinic by claiming it was not a good fit. One of the building’s current tenants is Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion provider. In other cities and states, Planned Parenthood has sought to shut down non-profits similar to Alpha that encourage women to consider alternatives to abortion.
Brad Dacus, president of Pacific Justice Institute, commented, “During this Christmas season, it is sadly ironic that pregnant women are again being denied access to a place that could offer safety and hope. This time, though it isn’t because there is no room at the inn—it is because of opposition to the pregnancy clinic’s pro-life beliefs. This is not just ironic—it is illegal under California law.”
