    I don’t want my tax payer money going to recruiting centers for christianity and medical lies.  Anti-choicers will use any deceitful tactics to reach their goals.

    It is a simple violation of church and state for religious dogma to be use to limit legal medical procedures of any kind. So you could protest use of tax money for warsome people do and have their funds garnished. Maybe you have moral objection to selling any meds to non-christians or to pagans or to democrats. This is a taking away of people freedom by someone elses moral view that can’t keep to themselves. Apparently God requires their help to keep his world in order and free will is one of the things that has to go.

    I want someone to sue one of these places for being lied to.  Of course, that would come at a big personal cost to a pregnant or formerly pregnant woman.  I am completely baffled that these places remain legal and am really curious about the types of legal action that could be taken against them.  As a mental health professional I keep thinking about the fact that if I knew anyone in my field was providing the kind of incompetent mental health information and “care” to any of my clients that these places do, I would be prompted to report it–but CPCs can just play fast and loose with women’s mental health in the name of Jesus.  Similarly, it seems that Stanton “Health Care” makes up for the fact that they actually provide zero medical care beyond prenatal vitamins by giving their clients an ultrasound every single month (I have relatives in Boise that are unfortunately associated with Stanton, who are constantly posting videos and stories from Brandi Swindell about what goes on there)– this is completely antithetical to standard practice with pregnant women (of course there are individual differences, but research and experience tells me the average is around 2-3 ultrasounds during a pregnancy) and in direct conflict with released statements by several professional associations (gosh I wish I could find the link right now to one I recently read–a joint statement by some associations) about the responsible use of ultrasound.  I am certainly not a legal expert but just by mental health and medical ethical standards alone I think I see all kinds of grounds for legal action.  The fact that I don’t see any means I’m either wrong or we are too busy fighting in the courts for our rights already.

    It would really be interesting to do a study to see if there’s a correlation between the rapidly increasing use of ultrasounds for nonmedical purposes by barely qualified amateurs and the rapidly increasing diagnoses of autism.

    Yes!  I was reading something about the Heartbeat International national conference schedule and there was a class about ultrasounds–it was constructed around the assumption that non-medical volunteers/staff were the ones usually giving these ultrasounds and had no knowledge of what they were looking at.
