ABC Women’s Center, Middletown

    This coming Tuesday, March 20th, the Public Health Committee of the General Assembly will hold a public hearing on House Bill 5416 “An Act Concerning Deceptive Advertising Practices of Limited Services Pregnancy Centers. The hearing will be held at 11:00 am, in Room 2c of the Legislative Office Building. Although the title of the legislation implies that the proposed bill is aimed at false advertising, it is really an effort to limit the free speech rights of pro-life pregnancy resource centers (PRCs). The proposed legislation has been drafted with the assistance of pro-abortion organizations, such as NARAL and Planned Parenthood. This effort is part of a national campaign to harass and eventually shutdown PRCs.  

 The Connecticut Catholic Public Affairs Conference strongly opposes this proposed ordinance and urges you to help us defeat H.B. 5416
