An anti-abortion “crisis pregnancy center” in Manassas, Virginia, called AAA Women for Choice, has been set up for years right next door to an actual women’s health clinic, Amethyst Health Center for Women. Their goal was to trick women seeking actual reproductive healthcare, including abortions, into entering their establishment instead of the legitimate institution next door. (Incidentally, my mother was a clinic escort for Amethyst, and witnessed this behavior firsthand many times.)
This year, the proprietor of Amethyst Health Center for Women retired and sold the practice, to what she thought was a group of medical center investors. It was actually the anti-abortion group which had spent years luring her patients into their office to cajole them with prayer, used baby items, and gory pictures. The anti-abortion crisis pregnancy center now owns the closed clinic and its phone number, and is using that to fool people seeking care into coming into their office instead. They plan to install an anti-abortion center in the closed clinic, but continue to use the clinic’s branding.
AAA Women for Choice in Manassas, Virginia is a religious anti-abortion organization, not a legitimate clinic, and the people that run it now own Amethyst Health Center for Women. They can’t provide medical care or advice, but when you call, they will ask you questions as though they can- and if you give them your information, they are not bound by confidentiality laws.
