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.”

MAYOR BRONIN ATTENDS SCHOOL WALKOUT, APPLAUDS STUDENTS CALLING FOR GUN SAFETY REFORMS

MAYOR BRONIN ATTENDS SCHOOL WALKOUT, APPLAUDS STUDENTS CALLING FOR GUN SAFETY REFORMS

HARTFORD, CONN (March 14, 2018) –Mayor Luke Bronin released the statement below after joining students at Hartford Magnet Trinity College Academy this morning during their walkout in remembrance of the lives lost in the Parkland shooting.

“Today, huge numbers of students stood up, walked out, and called on America’s elected leaders to show some courage, compassion, and common sense,” said Mayor Bronin.  “This is one of the most powerful movements we’ve seen in a long time, and it was inspiring to see so many brave, eloquent students raise their voices in Hartford this morning.  Lawmakers have a basic choice to make, in Congress and around the nation: stand with these young people pleading for common-sense, or give way to the political threats and intimidation of the NRA.  Young people are saying ‘enough is enough,’ and we adults need to listen.”
