Action Taken Towards Combating Anti-Choice Deceptive Advertising Practices!

BIG NEWS: S.B. 835 An Act Concerncing Deceptive Advertsing Practices of Limited Services Pregnancy Centers, passed the Senate on Wednesday, May 5th! As State Director Liz Gustafson mentioned in her press release, “Any delay in receiving this care is a threat to public health, and in this moment the impact of disinformation and misdirection is even more detrimental to those who are interrupted in their search for medical care. This legislation is about honesty, transparency, and the dignity of those who need access to care. It is about fostering safe and healthy communities, free of stigma and unnecessary barriers perpetuated by deceptive tactics.” Thank you to Senator Mary Abrams for her continued leadership and commitment to protecting & expanding reproductive freedom, and to all of our members and cross-movement allies for getting us to this critical point. On to the House of Representatives!
