"The CPC told me that I would become infertile if I had an abortion."

CPCs: We’re protecting women as “an adult tells a child not to to touch a hot stove.”

Over the course of the three days of the conference, I chatted with a few dozen pregnancy center workers. Multiple women told me it was their job to protect women from abortion as “an adult tells a child not to touch a hot stove.”

Texas crisis pregnancy centers exposed

If you follow Feministing, you probably know about crisis pregnancy centers. We’ve written on numerous occasions about these facilities run by anti-choicers that usually disguise themselves as health care facilities but serve the purpose of preventing folks facing unintended or unwanted pregnancies from accessing abortion services. Their coded language can be hard to distinguish even for those of us who’ve spent time on campaigns to increase access to reproductive health care, and for most people they can be impossible to tell apart from actual health care facilities. Because of this, NARAL Pro-Choice Texas just released a new site exposing crisis pregnancy centers (CPCs) in the state.

Google is cracking down on deceptive crisis pregnancy center ads

This is great news:

Google is removing Web search ads for some “crisis pregnancy centers,” after an investigation by NARAL Pro-Choice America found evidence that the ads violate Google’s policy against deceptive advertising.

“We have no problem with crisis pregnancy centers advertising online; we have no problem with their existing,” said Illyse Hogue, president of NARAL Pro-Choice America. “That is their right in America.” But Hogue said NARAL objects to the way the centers have been promoted online, with ads that include text indicating that the centers provide abortions.

According to an analysis by NARAL, 79 percent of the crisis pregnancy centers that advertised on Google indicated that they provided medical services such as abortions, when, in fact, they are focused ...
