Three delays

Well, just because it’s the weekend doesn’t mean the news stops. First, Eric Scheidler’s delayed appearance from last week’s pro-life libel suit against Planned Parenthood has been delayed, I hear, because additional plaintiffs are continually being added. Look for that to be filed early next week. Finally, here’s the report of another sort of delay […]

Gabriel’s favorite song

It’s the weekend and time to regroup, right? With that in mind, here is my 7-year-old grandson Gabriel’s current favorite song. His Vacation Bible School version was a lot less rock and roll, but this is the same inspiring tune. I love to hear him sing it in his small, clear voice… “Tell the world […]

To be clear, some crisis pregnancy centers can be shady. They have been known to misleadingly portray themselves as full-service women’s health clinics, or to obscure religious affiliations. They may offer discredited info on things like “the link between abortion and depression,” or engage in what some describe as bullying or pressuring women into carrying pregnancies to term.

But the state really shouldn’t be in the business of deciding what completely non-criminal information a private operation may make available. And many businesses and non-profits have owners with religious beliefs that they don’t necessarily broadcast. In other words, you may condemn these pregnancy centers’ tactics or views, but they’re not de facto doing anything illegal. What’s more, they may doing some good: Despite not offering contraception or abortion advice, the centers do offer things like free pregnancy tests, screenings for sexually transmitted infections, ultrasounds, and baby clothes.

If particular centers are engaging in deceptive or fraudulent practices, then by all means, go after them for that. But the point should be making them be honest about what they are, not trying to turn them into something they’re not.
