By Bill Redlin

The archdiocese of Baltimore is suing the city of Baltimore over a new ordinance requiring pregnancy clinics to post signs saying they do not provide abortions, if that is the case.

Archbiship Edwin F. O'Brien says the ordinance violates the centers' constitutional right to free speech, and free exercise of religion. He says since the requirement only applies to centers that do not provide abortions it is unconstitutional viewpoint discrimination.

The suit was filed Monday in U.S. District Court. It names the city, mayor, city council and the city's health commissioner and health department as defendants. City Solicitor George Nilson says his office approved the constitutionality of the measure and that the city will defend the ordinance.
