New investigative video shows a crisis pregnancy center counselor telling a client dangerous lies

Katie Stack was disturbed when she got pregnant and visited a clinic close by that turned out to be a crisis pregnancy center, facilities that try to look like abortion clinics that exist to talk people out of accessing abortions. Katie was lied to about her own health, as happens to so many young people. This experience inspired her to investigate these misleading fake clinics:

Though she had an appointment at a Planned Parenthood clinic for an abortion, she visited an Iowa clinic closer to her home. “ The “counseling” that I received included the following,” Stack wrote in a 2011 New York Times Op-Ed. “I was cautioned that abortions caused breast cancer, even though the National Cancer Institute has found serious flaws in ...

Bad-ass of the Day: Outing crisis pregnancy centers

Awesome. Sticker reads: “Be advised, this is an anti-choice organization. They will NOT present you with all your legal and medical options. Call Planned Parenthood instead.”

Apple’s Siri is suspiciously clueless about reproductive health

It seems the iPhone’s new interactive app Siri isn’t all that helpful when it comes to women’s health. Here are the answers that a commenter at the Abortioneers got to some pretty basic questions.

Q: I am pregnant and do not want to be. Where can I go to get an abortion?

“I’m really sorry about this, but I can’t take any requests right now. Please try again in a little while.”

“Sorry, [my name], I can’t look for places in Tanzania.”

“I don’t see any abortion clinics. Sorry about that.”

Q: I had unprotected sex. Where can I go for emergency contraception?

“Sorry, I couldn’t find any adult retail stores.” This was repeated every time.

Q: I need birth control. Where can I go ...

NARAL Pro-Choice NC releases undercover investigation of CPCs

Today, NARAL Pro-Choice North Carolina released their undercover investigation into crisis pregnancy centers, and it’s pretty friggin’ scary.

The state actually has an intense presence of crisis pregnancy centers — in fact, there are 8 times as many CPCs in the North Carolina than there are abortion clinics. And now, two recent state laws will drive even more funding to the centers:

Money from sales of the new “Choose Life” license plates, which are expected to become available later this year, will go to the anti-abortion centers. On Wednesday, under the new law that places restrictions on abortions, a state-run website will launch and list the places that provide free ultrasounds, a service provided ...

San Francisco to ban crisis pregnancy centers (and the creepiest photo ever)

First, the good news:

San Francisco legislators on Tuesday took the first step towards clamping down on “false and misleading advertising” from “crisis pregnancy centers,” following the lead of several other American cities.

Supervisor Malia Cohen believes that these so-called “crisis pregnancy centers,” such as Bay Area-based First Resort, lie to women seeking options in an unexpected pregnancy, according to the San Francisco Appeal online newspaper.

Instead of offering counseling around a woman’s choices, they are steered toward a right-wing, anti-abortion agenda. There are three such centers in San Francisco, and they’re also drawn ire from mayoral candidates.

Very awesome news, let’s hope this moves forward. Now to the accompanying image:

What every woman should know about CPCs (in handy cartoon form)

Check out this awesome graphic report on crisis pregnancy centers by Susie Cagle. Her description? “Fertile-looking lay person + pregnancy tests + Bush-era abstinence brochures + comfy chairs + lots of calendars +ultrasound machine + nurse = CPC!”

Cagle went undercover at one CPC in San Francisco, First Resort, to get a first-hand taste of how they use “kindness, comfort, and misinformation” to push their anti-choice agenda. Happily, San Francisco is pushing for a bill to require truth-in-advertising from CPCs in the city.

But, as the battle over similar laws in New York City and Baltimore continues in the courts, raising public awareness of CPCs is just as important. As organizations that fundamentally rely on ...

Anti-choice groups playing dirty with google ads.

Anti-choice group Online for Life has dedicated monies to buying up Google ads so when a woman is googling to find access to a reproductive health/abortion provider, she is intercepted by ads that claim they offer full medical counseling–but are actually for crisis pregnancy centers.

Online for Life writes on their website about this new deceitful and problematic campaign,

The primary place where abortion-determined women and men go to find abortion providers is the Internet. There are over 6 million Internet searches every month for abortion-related information in the United States alone.

However, a large majority of abortion-determined people change their mind and heart when they see their baby during an ultrasound. Seeing the form, movement, and life of a baby—their ...
