Lamont Signs Law Banning Deceptive Language At Pregnancy Centers
Connecticut Governor Ned Lamont has signed into law a bill that would ban pregnancy centers from using false and deceptive language about the services they provide.
Lamont said these crisis pregnancy center typically steer women away from abortion and contraception.
"We’re going to stand up and make sure that healthcare is a basic right for everybody. Reproductive health care. This deceptive advertising, these games, these deceitful people are playing, it’s a political agenda and it’s wrong,” Lamont said.
Lamont said he hopes the law will help prevent misinformation from these centers.
The legislation also gives Connecticut Attorney General William Tong the authority to seek a court order to stop the deceptive practices.
