Tell the Hartford City Council –Give women in Hartford real pregnancy choices!
Pro-abortion advocates try to claim that they are “pro-choice.” However, abortion advocates often tell women there is only one appropriate choice –terminating their pregnancy.
The Hartford City Council now wants to force pro-life crisis pregnancy centers to direct women to abortion clinics.
The Hartford City Council just voted to pass an ordinance that would require pro-life pregnancy centers to post misleading information intended to thwart the efforts of these centers to help women make life-giving choices.
Fortunately, the ordinance will not go into effect until July 2018. Which means we have time to let the City Council know we will not allow them to compel us to mislead needy women.
Please sign this petition to the City Council demanding that they rescind this ordinance obviously designed to scare women away from seeking the help they need.
Here’s what’s going on. There’s just one crisis pregnancy center in Hartford: Hartford Women’s Center. The council would now require that they post a sign stating that they are a non-medical facility –which is false. The center is staffed by medical professionals under the supervision of a doctor.
It’s clear that the ordinance is about keeping women away from Hartford Women’s Center.
Women deserve real choices when facing unplanned pregnancies. Pro-life advocates know that abortion clinics are harmful to women and dishonest. Is it right to force us to promote something we know is harmful?
As a series of recent investigative videos produced by Live Action have demonstrated, Planned Parenthood clinics offer women only one option –abortion. Planned Parenthood clinics (1) do not offer prenatal care, (2) won’t allow use of ultrasounds for anything other than abortion, and, in fact, (3) are required to meet certain quotas of abortions each month. One of these facts being true is a travesty; all three make the mission of Planned Parenthood clear—perform as many abortions as possible!
A former employee of Planned Parenthood has revealed that she was trained “to really encourage women to get an abortion and to [get] it at Planned Parenthood, because that would help us meet our goal [quota]. We would try to have the appointment for the abortion scheduled before they left the clinic.”
“We would say things like, ‘your visit today costs X number of dollars, how much of that are you going to be able to pay today?’ If they said, ‘I’m not able to pay today,’ we’d say, ‘If you can’t pay ten dollars today, how are you going to take care of a baby? … There is nowhere you can go to get help, don’t you think your smartest choice is termination.’”
It’s clear: the abortion industry doesn’t offer women choices, they only offer death. Yet now, the Hartford City Council is trying to silence the Hartford Women’s Center from offering the choice of life.
Please stand up to the Hartford City Council and tell them women in Hartford need real choices.
