ABC Women’s Center official statement on H.B. 7070
As a faith-based nonprofit we are committed to treating others as we would want to be treated. This includes complete honesty and transparency in all of our interactions, and our client satisfaction surveys consistently reflect the high levels of integrity and service our center is known for.
However, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that the government does not have the right to single out a group of people because of their sincerely held beliefs. As such, we oppose any legislation—including H.B. 7070—that unfairly targets pregnancy centers.
It is our hope that Connecticut lawmakers will see the benefit of creating legislation that supports women and local nonprofits that provide them with resources and options.
