  • Appeals Court Rules Against NYC Anti-pregnancy Center Law

    Source: NEW YORK CITY, January 17, 2014 (

    – A panel of three federal judges has unanimously ruled unconstitutional a provision in New York City law requiring pro-life crisis pregnancy centers (CPCs) to post notices and verbally advise potential clients that they are not full service pregnancy care facilities because they do not offer abortions. The law also requires CPCs to inform clients that the city recommends women who think they may be pregnant visit a ‘licensed provider.’

    The ruling partly upheld a lower court decision by Judge William Pauley, who called the law “particularly offensive to free speech principles,” and struck it down in its entirety.

    But in a 2-1 decision, the 2nd Circuit appeals panel reinstated one provision of the law requiring CPCs to disclose whether they have a licensed medical provider on staff who performs or directly supervises all services offered at the facility.

    Not a perfect decision and it will likely be back in court soon, but another tiny step in the right direction!
