City Council OKs bill on pregnancy center disclaimers

November 18, 2009

The Baltimore City Council approved a measure Monday night that would require crisis pregnancy centers that do not provide referrals to abortion or birth control to post a disclaimer. The bill, which is opposed by anti-abortion groups, would affect four city centers that offer counseling, prenatal care and baby clothes to pregnant women. An amendment that would have forced abortion clinics to also post disclaimers was not approved. The measure is slated for a final vote before being submitted to the mayor.
