Earlier today, the Connecticut Joint Committee on Public Health allowed two potentially dangerous pieces of legislation to expire. The first, HB 5416, was an abortion industry-led attack on Connecticut’s pro-life pregnancy help centers that sought to give state courts the ability to police the way centers reach women with their message of hope. The second, HB 5417, would have implemented a physician-assisted suicide regime in Connecticut. Americans United for Life’s Director of Legal Communications, Deanna Wallace, who was at the Connecticut Capitol last week to testify against both bills, said, “During last week’s hearings, pro-life advocates and coalition groups packed the Committee room, staying until 1 a.m. to make sure that their voices were heard. I was proud to have stood with the pro-life movement of Connecticut to defeat these alarming bills.”
