Rally May 21 at the State Capitol to Support Pro-Life Pregnancy Care Center

Rally May 21 at the State Capitol to Support Pro-Life Pregnancy Care Center

ACTION ALERT

The Connecticut Pregnancy Care Coalition is sponsoring a pro-life rally to defend the work and reputation of the pro-life pregnancy resource centers in our state.

The rally will take place at noon Tuesday, May 21, at the State Capitol.

This past week, the House of Representatives passed H.B. 7070, which subjects the advertising of pro-life pregnancy care centers to the oversight and authority of the Attorney General of Connecticut.

The Attorney General will have sole discretion in determining whether the advertising is appropriate or not. The bill passed with strong support of the abortion lobby and the Democratic members of the House. 

These centers honestly and openly serve hundreds of women in our state seeking assistance and an alternative to abortion. Litigation created by this bill, even if using false claims, could easily put these centers out of business.

The centers are not able to recover legal costs under this bill, even if a court rules the claim is false.
