Last month the Montgomery County Council gave up its ridiculous attempt to force gag regulations on the pro-life pregnancy centers in the county. Mind you, they had to endure a few legal smack-downs and they witnessed what was happening to other localities across the nation that attempted to follow the NARAL playbook.
It seems that the City of Baltimore is being just a bit more stubborn and obtuse than their compatriots of Montgomery County. In their ongoing quest to satisfy their sources of money, the Baltimore City Council has demanded that four pro-life organizations surrender their private files to their viewing. It filed a subpoena for that purpose. Alliance Defending Freedom has come to the aid of these pro-life groups with a motion to quash the subpoena. The four pro-life groups being threatened are: Heartbeat International, Care Net, National Institute of Family and Life Advocates, and the Vitae Foundation.
It is election time in Maryland. The pro-aborts on the City Council probably want to convince their puppet masters that they deserve to be kept on the Council. Will the citizens of Baltimore City finally wake up and give them their walking papers? Even if not, we hope that the council will acknowledge what has been happening with that legislation nation-wide and, as did their Montgomery County counterparts, decide to give it a rest.
