Conn. abortion cartel has friends in high places

ConnecticutCity leaders in Connecticut's capital may be making a hasty move to protect the local abortion industry.

The Hartford City Council is considering an idea to force pro-life centers to disclose whether staff members have medical licenses and to halt false or deceptive advertising practices, implying that the pro-life centers do indeed engage in such deception.

Peter Wolfgang of the Family Institute of Connecticut tells OneNewsNow that the abortion cartel is motivated by the decline in the abortion rate and their loss of business to pregnancy care centers.

"What the pro-abortionists here in Connecticut have been trying to do for the past few years is pass some sort of law at the state legislature limiting the ability of pregnancy care centers to serve mothers in crisis," says Wolfgang.

That legislation has been stopped at the state level, so Hartford is considering its own city version. But Wolfgang believes the timing is wrong.

Wolfgang, Peter (Family Institute of Connecticut)"The U.S. Supreme Court is set to take one [case] up out of California, so this is really not a smart move on the part of the abortionists," he notes. "It's not a good time for them to do this because the Supreme Court, we hope, is going to be striking these down soon."

That's a reference to a similar California law that even requires pro-life centers to help sell abortions to their clients. The U.S. Supreme Court has agreed to hear a case challenging that law.

Hartford will have a public hearing Monday evening, and Wolfgang is hoping for an abundance of pro-life Connecticut residents to testify against the proposal.
