Montgomery County wants pregnancy centers that are against abortion to provide a disclaimer for clients.
Some centers bill themselves as places to get information about abortion, then try to counsel women away from the procedure. Abortion rights advocates say these centers provide biased and inaccurate information.
Those who back the disclaimer say it's a matter of consumer protection. The disclaimer would read: information provided by the centers "is not intended to be medical advice." Those against it say the requirement will unfairly single out certain pro-life providers.
A similar measure is under consideration in Baltimore. Montgomery County's hearing is scheduled for Dec. 1.
