National Right to Life Praises Introduction of Protect Pregnancy Care Centers Act of 2022

WASHINGTON — Representatives Chris Smith (R-N.J.) and Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-Wash.) today introduced the Protect Pregnancy Care Centers Act of 2022. The bill would require an Inspector General report on domestic violent extremism against pregnancy centers.

“We praise Representatives Chris Smith and Cathy McMorris Rodgers for this legislation and for their work to protect women and their unborn babies,” said Carol Tobias, president of National Right to Life. “This legislation is a step forward in ensuring that pregnancy centers are able to serve the needs of women in their communities without fear of violence.”

Since the Dobbs decision in June, nearly 70 violent acts against pregnancy centers have been recorded.

Nearly 3,000 pregnancy centers serve about 2 million clients annually, saving local communities millions of dollars by providing services at little to no cost. Many pregnancy centers provide limited obstetrical ultrasounds under a local doctor’s oversight as well as parenting classes. In addition, nearly all centers provide material assistance such as diapers, cribs, and car seats as well as practical help such as connecting a mother in need to local resources that can help her with housing or transportation.

“The pro-abortion Biden Administration has failed to respond to the reports of violence happening across the nation against pregnancy care centers,” Tobias stated. “The Protect Pregnancy Care Centers Act of 2022 will hold the pro-abortion Biden Administration accountable for its inaction.”
