This is a REAL pamphlet given to a young person at a crisis pregnancy center.  According to them, using a condom is “about as safe as hanging over a cliff with a frayed rope.”  

Talk about lies and misinformation.  

Crisis pregnancy centers (CPCs) pose as legitimate reproductive health centers. They have a track record of outright lying to women and work to dissuade people from exercising the right to choose. They often advertise as if they provide abortion services, drawing people in by promising free reproductive health services, including free pregnancy tests, ultrasounds, and options counseling.

Must watch. At minute 7 we meet a woman tricked into an appointment at a crisis pregnancy center, and it’s heartbreaking. 

This sign seems harmless enough. But it’s part of a scheme by an anti-choice crisis pregnancy center (CPC) to trick women seeking abortion services. Crisis pregnancy centers (CPCs) pose as legitimate reproductive health centers. They have a track record of outright lying to women and work to dissuade people from exercising the right to choose.

Here’s what happening: this particular CPC sits right next to a legitimate abortion clinic (called EMW). That’s one way they cause confusion. Check out the “parking permit” gimmick. That’s how the CPC is luring women to the parking lot and getting them to come inside for a parking permit. Once a woman goes into a CPC, an anti-choice volunteer may try to get the woman to miss her appointment or use shame or scare tactics to pressure the woman not to access abortion.

Sketchy and so wrong.

This map from Salt Lake City, Utah shows how CPCs often position themselves right next to legitimate healthcare centers, so as to confuse people who are looking for comprehensive reproductive health services.

Experienced at the Harrisonburg Pregnancy Center in Harrisonburg, VA. I also received Focus on the Family pamphlets from the counselor pressuring me to stop having sex with my boyfriend.

ummm… that’s because it does!
Imagine a (I know this is a crude analogy, none are perfect) a father gives his 13-year old daughter a hamster as a present. The daughter then while the dad was in the other room stabs the hamster and flushes it down the toilet. Do you think that relationship would be the same?? He would be worried about her and is hurt that she threw away his gift.
God infuses every child with a soul at the moment of conception. Every child is a gift from God that is willed & loved by him. Murdering his children puts a serious dent in a relationship for sure.

Psalm 139:13-15
“You did form my inward parts, you knit me together in my mother’s womb…you knew me right well; my frame was not hidden from you, when I was being made in secret…”



Jeremiah1:4-5
“Now the word of the Lord came to me, saying, Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you.”

Luke 1:15
 "He will be filled with the Holy Spirit, even before his birth.“

Psalm 127:3
"Lo, children are an heritage of the Lord: and the fruit of the womb is His reward.”

It should be a no-brainer to Christians that God would not condone abortion.
