Court stikes down Baltimore disclosure law

A federal appeals court on Friday found unconstitutional a Baltimore City law requiring that pro-life pregnancy clinics post a sign in their waiting rooms disclosing that they don’t offer or refer women for abortions.

In a 3-0 decision, the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals sided with the Greater Baltimore Center for Pregnancy Concerns, a Christian nonprofit, which argued the law violated its First Amendment right to free speech.

Judge Harvie Wilkinson III said the city has "considerable latitude in regulating public health and deceptive advertising." But, he continued, "Baltimore’s chosen means here are too loose a fit with those ends, and in this case compel a politically and religiously motivated group to convey a message fundamentally at odds with its core beliefs and mission.

TVNL Comment:  The bible wins another round over the law.  Women also lose again.
