      • “Crisis pregnancy centers” can continue to obscure their anti-choice crusade and to misguide women about the range of reproductive options available with the repeal of the abortion-disclosure law. Abortion is so grossly stigmatized that it goes unrecognized for what it actually is: the most common medical procedure among women across the world. Abortion is a medical procedure that must be represented without bias if a so-called health care provider can claim any degree of legitimacy.

    These places are a joke! Long on propganda and  far short of anything approaching actual help for pregnant women.  And the fact that they are claiming that  they won’t be able to do their jobs unless they’re allowed to lie to and mislead women (as evidenced by their wish to block this law) just says volumes about them, doesn’t it? Something really needs to be done about these places.

    The disclosure laws are sound and logical.  If the CPCs practices are legitimate, then they shouldn’t have issue with having to tell women upfront what those services are.  In addition it makes legal sense that women should be protected by knowing what services are offered when they walk into any establishment that claims to be there for their benefit.  We expect when we walk into a cardiologist’s office that he’s going to treat heart ailments.  If unlicensed nutritionists started opening “crisis heart centers” that did nothing but attempt to bully and shame people into changing their eating habits in the name of heart health while doing nothing to treat actual heart problems, there would be public outcry over the deception and the centers would be shut down within weeks if not days.  CPCs are allowed to continue while doing this to women on a routine basis.  They lure women who are at their most vulnerable into their offices seeking, even expecting help and medical care, only to be bombarded with false information and outright lies from untrained, nonmedical staff.  Again, if this were any other medical field, it would have been ended almost as soon as it started.
