Earlier this month, Hawaii’s house of representatives voted 41-10 in favor of a bill that would require the state’s pro-life pregnancy centers to advertise abortion services, LifeSite News reported.
The proposed measure known as SB 510 would force all community-funded pregnancy center — including the state’s five pro-life pregnancy organizations — to share with their clients the following message:
Hawaii has public programs that provide immediate free or low-cost access to comprehensive family planning services, including, but not limited to, all FDA-approved methods of contraception and pregnancy-related services for eligible women.
To apply online for medical insurance coverage, that will cover the full range of family planning and prenatal care services, go to mybenefits.hawaii.gov.
Only ultrasounds performed by qualified healthcare professionals and read by licensed clinicians should be considered medically accurate.
Establishments that failed to comply with this order would face a penalty of $500 for the first offense and $1,000 for a second offense.
