Forty-three years ago Friday, the US Supreme Court decided in Roe v. Wade that women have the right to an abortion. A back-and-forth of lawsuits has filled court dockets since. That’s true in the North State as well.
Two local crisis pregnancy centers are in a legal battle against a recent state law that requires women’s health centers that, like them, do not provide abortions, to clearly disclose that fact and to provide information of clinics that do. These centers in fact oppose abortion, and encourage parenting or adoption.
