Oral sex and head and neck cancer, Baltimore CPC law is struck down, parental notification in New Mexico, making judicial bypass harder on teens, and a cosponsor of the “it’s not rape unless you’re forced” bill says they didn’t mean it that way.
NARAL has crisis pregnancy centers in California running scared as Baltimore defends its posting requirements for CPCs. And in Utah, young women forget how to eat and seek medical care once they leave home, so they made a website.
Today, the Limited-Service Pregnancy Disclaimers Bill was signed into Baltimore law. The bill ensures that women who enter Baltimore area Crisis Pregnancy Centers (CPCs) hoping to find access to birth control, information about a potential pregnancy, or referrals to abortion providers will be immediately informed if those services are not available.
It looks like all the recent outrage directed at Crisis Pregnancy
Centers—and their underlying anti-choice ideology—is finally paying off.
Crisis pregnancy centers spread misinformation about abortion and birth control in an effort to dissuade women from exploring those options. The Baltimore City Council wants to change that.
