A pro-life, faith-based pregnancy care center has filed a federal lawsuit against the city of Hartford, claiming a recent ordinance targets its mobile care unit because of its views on abortion.

The lawsuit, filed Thursday in U.S. District Court for the District of Connecticut, notes that abortion clinics, community health centers and other health care entities are exempt from the ordinance.
