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.
Don't be reductive. Yes, many pregnancy centers have been caught lying or hiding their MO. But there are also ones that are above-board, honest with the info they provide, and helpful. There's a busy one in my 'hood in a major pro-choice NE city that has helped many women & families who don't want an abortion but lack the resources to carry a pregnancy to term or raise a baby. They provide adoption help and hook hard-up parents up with practical resources and classes. Some really do good work.
