NY pro-life pregnancy centers under attack

crisis pregnancy centerPregnancy help centers in New York City are likely to be in big trouble after the upcoming midterm elections in November.

The Big Apple and state of New York have been targeting pro-life pregnancy centers with laws that – for the most part – have been declared unconstitutional, but that has not slowed down the assault.

The latest assault is a bill proposed by Assemblyman Deborah Glick.

Chris Slattery of EMC Frontline Pregnancy Centers told OneNewsNow that the bill – if passed – would require information for a database to find ways to further cripple the centers.

“They want to know what is our government source of funding – [and] what are our religious affiliations?” Slattery explained. “Why is that the state's business? They want to intimidate medical professionals who are associated with them. They want to question the issue of ultrasonodography provided at the pregnancy centers.”

However, the same information is not required of abortion facilities.

With the November election, Slattery is convinced that pro-lifers will lose control of the Senate, and legislation such as the one proposed by Glick just might pass.

“This has been going on against me,” the pro-life activist continued. “I've had four different attorney generals come after me in the last 33 years, but I'm worried that the whole pregnancy center movement is going to be on a massive attack in New York State, come January, if things develop as I suspect they will.”

Although the attacks against Slattery’s faith-based pregnancy clinics have been ongoing for more than three decades, his faith has remained strong and he has won almost all of the clashes with the opposition.
