Warren Declares War On Crisis Pregnancy Centers

July 1, 2022

U.S Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-Cambridge) has co-sponsored a bill to ban what it calls “deceptive advertising” by crisis pregnancy centers.

“These are deceptive outfits that front for groups that are trying to harass or otherwise frighten people who are pregnant to keep them from seeking an abortion, and they do so under the cover of pretending to offer abortion services,” Warren said in a press conference, according to Masslive.com.

“So I’d like to see us talk about how we might move more aggressively to make sure that someone doesn’t face that bait and switch that could be traumatic at a time that that person is already under stress,” Warren added.

A couple of Massachusetts municipalities have attempted to implement similar legislation.

In May 2022, NewBostonPost reported that the city council of Somerville had passed a similar ordinance.

The town of Amherst also considered a similar bylaw in June before it was withdrawn.

 

New to NewBostonPost?  Conservative media is hard to find in Massachusetts.  But you’ve found it.  Now dip your toe in the water for two bucks — $2 for two months.  And join the real revolution.
