Shannon Grove (born March 18, 1965) is an American politician currently serving in the California State Assembly. She is a Republican representing the 34th district, encompassing parts of Kern County. Prior to being elected to the state assembly, she was the chief executive officer of an employment agency.
On June 1, 2015, at the California ProLife Legislative Banquet held in Sacramento, California, Grove suggested that if the drought-stricken state would only adopt laws restricting abortions, like Texas, God would make it rain. “Texas was in a long period of drought until Governor Perry signed the fetal pain bill. It rained that night. Now God has His hold on California”, Grove said.
