Maps of the Day: Texas’ abortion clinics vs. crisis pregnancy centers

Here’s a sobering visual of the state of abortion access in Texas via RH Reality Check.

According to Whole Woman’s Health, a group of reproductive health centers in Texas, here are all the crisis pregnancy centers in the Lone Star State. There are at least 108. Looks like you can’t throw a stone without hitting a facility looking to mislead, manipulate, and shame you out of seeking an abortion.

And here’s where Texans are expected to be able to get an abortion when the state’s new TRAP law goes into after September 2014. That’s six clinics within 268,581 square miles.

How are “crisis pregnancy centers” funded?

NARAL president and overall BAMF Ilyse Hogue published a piece in the Nation yesterday calling out “crisis pregnancy centers” (CPCs) for what they really are: traps to obstruct pregnant people from accessing abortion care. As we’ve written about before, these centers dishonestly advertise to those considering termination, pretending to be abortion clinics. Employees then dissuade clients from seeking abortions by all available methods: shaming, intimidation, medical lies.

Disturbingly, CPCs stay afloat with state financial support. Hogue writes:

In Virginia, part of the answer [of CPC funding] is Ken Cuccinelli, the current attorney general and Republican candidate for governor. He has said he was “proud” to help establish a “Choose Life” license plate as a state senator, ...

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 ...

Tax-funded CPC’s now hiring: Christians only need apply

With the news that 1 in 2 recent grads are jobless or underemployed, I’m sure many of you are job-hunting or know someone who is.

Well, look no further yall!

I hear there are some lovely CPCs that are hiring. They are taxpayer funded and can offer you or your job-seeking buds a sure-to-be fulfilling career helping people at an important, often vulnerable time in their life — when they are pregnant. There’s only one catch — ya better be Christian!

Yall know about crisis pregnancy centers, right? They’re these places that pretend to be health centers where women who are pregnant can come to consider all of their options, but are actually anti-choice fronts.

We’ve been covering these for a while now. ...

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 ...
