Attorney General Eric Schneiderman has filed suit against EMC Frontlines Pregnancy Centers, the largest chain of pro-life pregnancy help centers in the Big Apple. EMC executive director Chris Slattery tells OneNewsNow that Schneiderman argues EMC is practicing medicine without a license. The lawsuit is based on a 2016 law that requires all pregnancy centers to make clear that they are not medical clinics.

"What they're trying to do is basically cripple or stop ultrasounds from being performed by pro-life organizations," Slattery contends. "They don't want that to be done. Ultrasounds, of course, are one of the most potent tools in the pro-life movement to enable a woman to see the humanity of her child and bond with the baby."

EMC has gone back to court fighting against the rabidly pro-abortion attorney general and has been somewhat successful.

Slattery, Chris (EMC)"We fought off any handover of records and got an appellate division court here to say that the records the attorney general was seeking were way overbroad, and they cut back and trimmed back the allowable documents that we have to turn over," Slattery explains.

The pro-life leader says they are only turning over documents dealing with medically oriented services that EMC provides and who has provided them.

Even though his organization hasn't violated the law, Slattery is convinced the attorney general will use the documents to try to hammer them out of existence. He points out that the last three state attorneys general have targeted EMC and none have accomplished putting them out of business.
