The Feminist Majority Foundation and RH Reality Check have teamed up to take a look inside the crisis pregnancy center (CPC) movement. This short film highlights the gross misinformation that CPC’s provide clients. They tell women who come to them that abortion causes breast cancer and that women who have abortions are 154% more likely to commit suicide than women who carry a pregnancy to term. They even claim that having an abortion will cause women to start abusing drugs and/or alcohol. Never mind the fact that the only study they have to support the supposed breast cancer-abortion link is from the 1970′s. Right wing nut jobs never were big fans of science, anyway. But many times, the CPC’s don’t even perform an actual pregnancy test. Their strategy is to delay a person’s realization that they’re pregnant until they’re already too far along in pregnancy to get an abortion. Talk about lies and the lying liars who tell them.
The part that really burns my biscuits is that crisis pregnancy centers are receiving millions in government funding. They openly preach religious doctrine. How about separation of church and state? Not to mention that they are giving women medically inaccurate information. I think that’s medical malpractice – oh, wait . . . you’d actually have to be a doctor for that to be the case. No, this is more correctly labeled as practicing medicine without a license. Planned Parenthood is in danger of losing its funding, but these CPC jokers are flush in taxpayer cash? It’s bollocks.
