Pregnancy Care Centers are suing State Attorney General Tish James, to prevent the AG from suing the pro-life centers who want to share medical information about the dangers of two abortion-triggering pills.

Gabriella McIntyre of the Alliance Defending Freedom joins Sarah Harnisch to discuss the issues underlying these current and proposed legal battles, plus what the courts will be asked to consider about Freedom of Speech, government regulations, and the public’s access to appropriate medical information.

Capital Connection – 4/19/24

Christian watchdogs Jason McGuire (who leads the New York Families Foundation) and Michael Geer (who leads the Pennsylvania Family Institute) discuss the weighty issues in the news each Friday on Family Life’s “Capital Connection“.  Here’s what’s happening this week:

  • New York’s Parental Replacement Act
  • Punishing De-Transitioners in Pennsylvania
  • Limits on Cellphones in School
  • Abortion Extremism in the NYS Budget
  • Previewing Primary Day in PA

 

Followup:

Today’s conversation mentioned Chloe Cole, whose body was medically transformed when she was underaged — starting at 12 years old. Her personal dilemmas continued through her teen years, and as a young adult she underwent a “de-transitioning” in order to be a female. She talked about her life and her unique perspective on the so-called “gender-affirming” social movement at her Capitol Hill testimony in 2023. The August 2 Family Life News Feature offered highlights of her first-person presentation, and you can hear, share or download it from FamilyLife.org/newspodcasts.

This week’s Capital Connection roundtable examines the “big issues” in New York and Pennsylvania. The agenda for this episode includes:

  • Politics and faith had a big overlap during Easter Week, with Joe Biden’s triple Sunday proclamations and Donald Trump’s promotion of a specialty Bible
  • Legalization of marijuana in Pennsylvania could trigger the same economic, criminal and social problems other states have already seen
  • Phrasing of a New York legislative proposal affects the debate: is it “death with dignity” or “physician-assisted suicide”?
  • Some legislators recommend action that could affect PA charter schools, limiting some families’ school choice

Dan Bartkowiak substitutes for Michael Geer this week. Bartkowiak is the Director of Communications for the Pennsylvania Family Institute. [ online at PAFamily.com ]

Jason McGuire is Executive Director of the New York Families Federation.  [ online at NewYorkFamilies.org ] In this podcast, McGuire explains the “rebranding” of that group, previously called New Yorkers for Constitutional Freedoms.

  • Pro-abortion matters in the PA legislature and pro-life matters in a number of Pennsylvania communities
  • Bypassing doctors, Governor Hochul says pharmacies can dispense abortion-inducing drugs, without a prescription
  • The start of “March Madness” is a prime time to evaluate sports betting in our two states
