I want to e-file my California state return. Why do i have to purchase audit defense in order to e-file?

I have not been able to e-file my CA State return without being forced to add Audit Defense.  I have not clicked the "Add Audit Defense" button, but TurboTax continues to include it and send me to the payment page.

That is only if you want to have the 24.99 state efile fee deducted from your federal refund.  You have to  remove the Premium service and pay the fee with a credit card.
