The bill is aimed at marginalizing CPCs. Rep. Maloney says that CPC advertisements claiming to offer information about abortion are misleading because CPCs do not provide or refer for abortions. They also give information about abortion that can be discouraging to abortion-minded women, such as information on fetal development; information about post-abortion trauma; and the physical risks of abortion including infertility, infections, increased risk for breast cancer, and even death.LifeSite reports that the wording of the bill is minimal, leaving the details to be written by Obama Administration bureaucrats, the same as was done with the Obamacare legislation. Those administrative regulations, you may recall, require employers, including most religious based employers, to provide free birth control, abortion inducing drugs, and sterilization for their female employees.
Sen. Robert Menendez (D-NJ) has introduced a companion bill in the Senate.
