check Montgomery County Tepayac pregnancy care center pro-life abortion NARALUPDATE, 6/24, 10:45ap: More good news! As reported by CBNNews.com today:

A federal district court struck down an Austin, Texas, anti-pregnancy care law that forced pro-life pregnancy care centers to post messages that encourage women to go elsewhere.

6/19 12:52p: This decision should go a long way in dissuading government bodies from passing unconstitutional ordinances that attempt to muzzle the life-saving work of pregnancy care centers.

Such ordinances may hurt their municipal pocketbooks.

A federal district court has ordered Montgomery County, Maryland, to pay $375,000 in legal fees to Centro Tepayac Silver Spring Women’s Center after the pregnancy care center won its 2010 lawsuit against the county for violating its right to free speech.

  • In Israel, a woman has been arrested after a home birth resulted in a dead child. An autopsy is being done to determine whether the child was stillborn, as the mother claims.
  • In an interview with Sarah Kliff, Tammi Kromenaker, the operator of the only abortion clinic in North Dakota, notes that there is room for only one abortion clinic in the state:

    SK: How long have you been the only abortion clinic in North Dakota?

    TK: Since February 2001. Just to be clear, we’re not like Mississippi where other clinics have been legislated out of existence. This population is small, and it can only support one clinic. There was one that opened in 1991 and closed in 2001. There were two clinics for about two and a half years, but Fargo can’t support more than one clinic.

  • Two local Maryland laws regulating crisis pregnancy centers have been struck down:

    In a 2-1 ruling Wednesday, a panel of the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Richmond ruled that the Baltimore and Montgomery County ordinances violated the pregnancy centers’ free-speech rights.

  • In China, the husband of a woman forcibly aborted at 7 months has gone missing:

    Deng Jiyuan traveled to Beijing last week to meet with lawyers and journalists to discuss the incident. But, according to his sister, Mr. Deng was met with fierce resistance. “More than 100 people and a dozen of cars showed up to stop him, and a man suddenly appeared and kicked my brother in the stomach,” Deng Jicai said.

    On Sunday, government officials purportedly urged local townspeople to unfold a banner near the hospital where Feng was located, which called the family “traitors” and ordered that they be excommunicated from the town. Meanwhile, photos were posted online displaying a red banner that reads, “severely beat the traitors and expel them.”
