New York City Council to take up bill that targets pro-life centers
Catholic World News - February 28, 2011
New York’s City Council will take action this week on a measure designed to curb the work of crisis-pregnancy centers.
The legislation would require all pregnancy-care centers to post notices that they do not provide for abortions and to instruct clients about their legal right to abort. A similar bill, enacted in Baltimore, was struck down on a legal challenge, with the court ruling that the measure interfered with the free-speech rights of the pro-life centers.
Expectant Mother Care, a pro-life group that runs a chain of pregnancy-help centers in New York, has organized a public demonstration on Wednesday, March 1, to precede the City Council vote.
