Crisis pregnancy centers frequently set up shop near abortion clinics, college campuses, and other health centers, disguising themselves as legitimate health clinics to lure in patients who are considering abortion. Once inside, patients are faced with a barrage of medical misinformation, guilt tripping, and shaming for their choice to have sex, use birth control, or consider abortion.
Myth: Staff represent themselves as medical professionals
Fact: CPC volunteers purposely wear white coats or professional-sounding nametags, but more often than not have no medical training or licensure.
Myth: The risk of breast cancer increases 100% after abortion
Hi, just wondering if you have read aborted women by David Reardon. It was written in the 80s but is quite interesting, I'm just a bit unsure about how 'true' it is. It doesn't offer a lot of evidence with its statistics. Just wondering if you knew how I'd find this out?
I haven’t read it but I know of him. His work has caught a lot of flak for using information that’s based on studies that are methodologically flawed. The Royal Colleges of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists and of General Practitioners and the APA’s own peer-reviewed studies discredit David Reardon on his false claims.
You should check out the citations he offers in his book and see exactly what he’s referencing and if his sources are peer-reviewed and accepted by actual institutions in consensus.
