FBI Targets Pregnancy Center That Saved 42,000 Babies From Abortions

Based in New York City, the Expectant Mother Care-EMC FrontLine Pregnancy Centers has helped more than 42,000 women find abortion alternatives.

Apparently that is enough lives saved from abortion to make EMC a target for the FBI. Chris Slattery, National Director of the pregnancy center chain, tells LifeNews that, consistent with the recently discovered IRS attacks on pro-life groups, the FBI is now targeting EMC.

“President Obama has put the FBI on me, and they have politely invited me to headquarters to “talk” this week,” he said. “Domestic terrorism agents have called me in to answer their questions this week, as they launch an absurd case to intimidate us.”

The targeting comes as the New York Attorney General has charged EMC with supposedly practicing medicine without a license.

“The Attorney General has just charged EMC with “practicing medicine without a license” for performing free ultrasounds despite us using certified technicians and doctors, and failing to inform clients that we don’t provide or promote abortion and contraception. This is the third AG to attack us since 1987,” Slattery says.

According to Slattery, Schneiderman hit the pregnancy center with a subpoena alleging fraudulent and illegal acts of practicing medicine without a license and fraudulent advertising, and for reportedly not complying with a 1987 consent judgement, which was mainly a speech censorship agreement. That set of regulations was a “speech muzzling stranglehold similar to the NY City speech censorship bill passed in 2011 and enjoined,” Slattery explained.

Slattery says speech censorship against pregnancy centers is in place now in San Francisco, and similar speech censorship bills are now being fought hard again in Oregon. He said another bill awaits a vote in the New York legislature.



He beleives the PLanned Parenthood abortion business is behind the federal and state attacks.

“I founded Expectant Mother Care, also know as EMC FrontLine Pregnancy Centers in 1985. In 1987, and in one of the earliest Planned Parenthood co-ordinated and orchestrated attacks, then NY State AG Robert Abrahms sued us, and two other NYC pregnancy centers (one closed soon afterwards) for practicing medicine without a license (for pregnancy testing) and false and misleading advertising,” he noted.

Slattery says the ACLJ, a pro-life legal group, is representing EMC against the threats from the state attorney general.
