Kentucky Resolution Honoring Pregnancy Help Centers (HCR 152)
This law was last updated on Sep 6, 2018
HCR 152 is a concurrent resolution declaring the General Assembly’s support for pregnancy help centers (crisis pregnancy centers, or CPCs) in “their unique and positive contributions to the individual lives of women, men, and babies, both born and unborn.”
The resolution disapproves of any action by the United States Congress, federal agencies, or state governments that would compromise the mission or religious integrity of pregnancy help centers.
The resolution also disapproves of the actions of any national, state, or local group attempting to prevent pregnancy help centers from effectively serving women and men facing unplanned pregnancies.
The resolution claims pregnancy help centers provide full disclosure, in both their advertisements and direct contact with pregnant people, of the types of services they provide.
CPCs have come under increased scrutiny over the last several years, as investigations have revealed that centers across the country have provided inaccurate information and neglected to follow proper medical protocols. (Source.)
