L.A. City Attorney Pressures Pregnancy Center To Comply With State Law, Provide Info About Abortion Services
A Los Angeles pregnancy center that failed to comply with a state law requiring it to provide clients with information about free or low-cost family planning services, prenatal care, contraception and abortions has agreed to cooperate, City Atty. Mike Feuer announced Thursday. After the Pregnancy Counseling Center in Mission Hills missed an Aug. 14 deadline to correct violations, the city attorney’s office moved to file a lawsuit under a state law that bars unfair business practices and carries a possible $2,500 daily penalty. Feuer also informed the center that his office would seek a temporary restraining order to force it to comply. (Evans, 8/18)
3 LA Pregnancy Centers No Longer Violating State Law
Three "crisis pregnancy centers" that were violating a new state law have now posted the required signage, Los Angeles City Attorney Mike Feuer said Thursday. Last month, Feuer's office sent letters to three centers, notifying them that they were out of compliance with the law. One facility, Pregnancy Counseling Center in Mission Hills, is licensed by the state. The other two, Los Angeles Pregnancy Center in MacArthur Park and Harbor Pregnancy Help Center in Wilmington, are unlicensed. (Plevin, 8/18)
