Md. Abortion Disclaimer Ruling Will Be Appealed

BALTIMORE (AP) — Supporters of a Baltimore ordinance that requires pregnancy counseling centers to post a disclaimer if they don’t provide abortions or birth control say they will appeal a court ruling that the law is unconstitutional.

An official with the Center for Reproductive Rights said in an e-mail Saturday that the group and the City of Baltimore would appeal Friday’s ruling by a federal judge.

Baltimore’s ordinance took effect last year, but the city agreed not to start enforcing it while the matter was litigated.
