Dr. Anne Hendershott, professor of Sociology and director of the Veritas Center for Ethics in Public Life, details a new component in the battle between pro-lifers and pro-choicers.
Opening a new front in the abortion wars, some of Connecticut’s progressive politicians have now taken aim at the state’s crisis pregnancy centers. Hartford Mayor Luke Bronin is now targeting the city’s pregnancy support centers with a new Pregnancy Information Disclosure and Protection Ordinance, this after a June 2018 free-speech ruling by the United States Supreme Court that struck down a Ninth Circuit ruling forcing pro-life centers to post notices on how to obtain abortions.
