Tomorrow, California will vote on a bill that would require crisis pregnancy centers to tell women the truth about their reproductive health options. One politician asked why a lawmaker cared so much about the bill, and her response is PERFECT.

I’ve said it before and will say it again

All of these weird anti-choice tactics (crisis pregnancy centers making a client miss an appointment because the client went to the wrong place or a sidewalk counselor causing someone to break their fast and they can’t have the procedure that day) backfire. 

Mainly, because people don’t like being lied to.  People don’t like being tricked, fooled, deceived, etc. 

Clients 9 out of 10 times WILL reschedule and will come back to have the abortion, and they are WAY more resolved to do so. 

We won’t get fooled again.

I’m working on a Tumblr/Twitter bot that automatically generates and posts these, so if I generate any further titles I’ll probably fold them into the bot rather than posting them here.
