Anti-pregnancy center laws: pro-“choice” hypocrisy at its finest

As David W. Chen reported in The New York Times, “The [NY] City Council had enacted the [anti-pregnancy center] law in March, framing it as a matter of consumer protection and truth in advertising, not long after NARAL Pro-Choice New York released a report saying it has found crisis pregnancy centers using deceptive tactics and false claims to dissuade women from having abortions.”

Note that the law was tied to this report by [NARAL], a local affiliate of the nation’s leading abortion rights group. Consider also the fact that 40% of all pregnancies in New York City end in abortion (and fully 60% of all pregnancies to African American women). Those horrendous and chilling percentages are evidently not enough for the abortion industry and its ideological supporters. They want to shut down crisis pregnancy centers or render them ineffective….

Now, city officials in San Francisco have launched their own effort to shutter crisis pregnancy centers, claiming that staff at the centers impose “anti-abortion propaganda and mistruths on unsuspecting women.”

Note the reference to anti-abortion arguments as “propaganda,” as if there could only be one side to the issue. Dennis Herrera, the SF city attorney who is running for mayor, called the crisis pregnancy centers “right wing” and “politically motivated.”

There was no acknowledgment of the fact that pro-abortion groups such as Planned Parenthood are “left wing” and “politically motivated.” Furthermore, given the millions of dollars of income made by PP and other major components of the abortion industry, the phrase “financially motivated” should be added as well.

Where are the calls for honesty from Planned Parenthood?

Breaking: Judge enjoins NYC rule attacking pregnancy care centers

UPDATE, 1:40p: Just spoke with Tom Glessner, founder of National Institute of Family and Life Advocates and also an attorney, and he had great insights: “The court victories against these anti-pregnancy resource center ordinances serve as a turning point in this legal battle. Let all municipal councils beware that attempts to restrict the free speech of prcs now subjects them to serious civil liability risks.”

2:07p: Great news. New York City has become the second of three major cities* where pro-abortion edicts attempting to force pregnancy care centers to post signage that they do not commit abortions are meeting constitutional resistance.

Congrats to LifeSiteNews.com, which broke the story:

Abortion executives gone wild

These sorts of stories should come as no surprise. When one makes a living from killing babies, one leaves the starting gate with ethics problems. But coincidentally, here we have two criminal convictions in one week.

First, from New York Daily News, June 22 (love the “ex-boss” Mafia inference):

The ex-boss of a leading abortion rights group pleaded guilty Wednesday to stealing $75,000 from the organization – using donor money to pay her high-flying lifestyle.

Kelli Conlin [pictured right], who left Naral Pro-Choice of New York after two decades in January, used the political cash to cover part of a $30,000 a Hamptons rental, a car service for her kids and to buy designer clothes, officials said….

Under the pre-indictment settlement… Conlin agreed to repay the money by July 22 rather than go to prison.

The rights activist faced a maximum of four years behind bars if the case had been tried and she was convicted.

Next in the line-up, from the Roanoke Times, June 23:
