Judge Barry Williams on Wednesday refused to dismiss charges against six Baltimore police officers in the arrest and death of Freddie Gray, a 25-year old Black man who suffered a severe spinal cord injury and died while in police custody.
Today, the Limited-Service Pregnancy Disclaimers Bill was signed into Baltimore law. The bill ensures that women who enter Baltimore area Crisis Pregnancy Centers (CPCs) hoping to find access to birth control, information about a potential pregnancy, or referrals to abortion providers will be immediately informed if those services are not available.
Crisis pregnancy centers spread misinformation about abortion and birth control in an effort to dissuade women from exploring those options. The Baltimore City Council wants to change that.
