Pro-Life Rally a Success! But Anti-Pregnancy Center Bill Pending in State Senate...

FIC Action’s latest e-blast from President, Peter Wolfgang:

Tell Your Senator: Hands Off Pregnancy Centers!

Pro-Life Rally a Success! But Anti-Pregnancy Center Bill Pending in State Senate…Family Institute of Connecticut Action and our allies held a fantastic pro-life rally at the state Capitol on Tuesday. On just three days notice, hundreds of you showed up to defend our state’s pregnancy centers. Thank you!

FIC Action wishes to thank our partners, the Connecticut Pregnancy Care Coalition and the Connecticut Catholic Public Affairs Conference. It was the CPCC’s day to shine and they did! Likewise, the rally would not have been such a success without the Catholic Conference.

FIC Action also thanks the ten legislators who spoke or were present at the rally in defense of the pregnancy centers: Vincent CandeloraTim AckertMike FranceDave WilsonWilliam PetitCraig FishbeinLezlye ZupkusBill SimanskiAnne Dauphinaisand Brian Lanoue. Also, former state senator Michael McLachlan.

You can see all the news coverage, as well as our own footage, by scrolling through this week’s posts on FIC Action’s Facebook and Twitter.

FIC communications director Christina Bennett was interviewed by Channel 12Channel 3, and many others.

See Channel 3’s Facebook video of the pro-life rally, including Christina’s great speech here.

Unfortunately, none of this is a guarantee that H.B. 7070, the Anti-Pregnancy Center Bill, will be defeated. The bill has passed the House and is now before our State Senate. 

The Senate could vote on it any time between now and June 5th, the close of the session. If they do not vote on the bill by June 5th, we will have won for this year. But we are a very long way from that.

PLEASE click this link to send an updated message to your state senator.

It is urgent that you forward this link to every pro-life Connecticut resident you know and ask them to contact their senators to defend our pregnancy centers. Thank you!
