MAYOR BRONIN CALLS ON STATE TO CRACK DOWN ON DECEPTIVE PRACTICES TARGETING PREGNANT WOMEN

MAYOR BRONIN CALLS ON STATE TO CRACK DOWN ON DECEPTIVE PRACTICES TARGETING PREGNANT WOMEN

HARTFORD, CONN (March 20, 2018) – Today Mayor Bronin will testify at the State Capitol in favor of House Bill 5416, “An Act Concerning Deceptive Advertising Practices of Limited Services Pregnancy Centers.”  The bill mirrors an ordinance passed by the City Council and signed by the Mayor last year to prevent false, misleading, or deceptive advertising practices from so-called “crisis pregnancy centers” in Hartford.  The Mayor’s written testimony is available here.

“No matter how you feel about abortion, we should all agree that women deserve to be told the truth – especially when they’re making choices about their own health,” said Mayor Bronin.  “Last year, we passed an ordinance to stop dishonest practices aimed at ‘luring’ women away from a reproductive health center in Hartford.  The State should follow our lead and ban these deceptive practices across Connecticut.”
