pregnant African-American womanElections have consequences, and elections last year in Connecticut could mean trouble for pro-life pregnancy centers in the state.  

Abortion supporters openly despise the life-affirming facilities and now abortion allies in The Constitution State are trying a familiar tactic to fight them: claim they are deceiving women. 

Bill O'Brien of Massachusetts Citizens for Life tells OneNewsNow that lawmakers are considering a bill titled “An Act Concerning Deceptive Marketing Practices of Limited Service Pregnancy Centers.”

“That's what the claim is but they have not received any complaints,” he says. “So it looks like it's a bill that's in search of a problem and there is no problem.”

California attempted to crack down on pro-life centers by forcing them to literally advertise abortion services but that controversial law was struck down by the U.S. Supreme Court in 2018.

In Connecticut, O’Brien says last year’s elections ended with fewer pro-life Republicans in what was an evenly divided state senate. Now the Democrats control both houses and the governor’s office.

Gov. Ned Lamont has said he will sign the anti-pregnancy center bill, which passed out of the Public Health Committee in March.
