CAMPAIGN DESCRIPTION

Women facing an unplanned pregnancy may find themselves with fewer choices if House Bill 7070 "An Act Concerning Deceptive Advertising Practices of Limited Services Pregnancy Centers" is passed by the Connecticut General Assembly. Help us keep pro-life pregnancy resource centers in Connecticut open to service women in need. Help us fight against legalizing "viewpoint discrimination" into our state laws. This legislation is not actually driven by concerns over false and misleading advertising, which has not been proven to exist, but by an ideological conflict between pregnancy resource centers, that do not provide abortion services, and centers that do provide or refer for abortions. The word “abortion” is the linchpin in determining who is covered by this proposed legislation and who is not. The bill specifically excludes centers that refer for abortions from being covered by this legislation. The bill is based on completely inaccurate and misleading information about pregnancy resource centers in our state by pro-abortion advocacy groups, primarily NARAL CT. The proposed legislation is part of a national campaign to discredit the work that pro-life centers perform. This legislation gives the Attorney General broad powers in defining deceptive advertising and enforcing the law. Legal expenses, incurred fighting frivolous claims, could lead to the closing of pregnancy resource centers, resulting in less options for a pregnant woman.
