As David W. Chen reported in The New York Times, “The [NY] City Council had enacted the [anti-pregnancy center] law in March, framing it as a matter of consumer protection and truth in advertising, not long after NARAL Pro-Choice New York released a report saying it has found crisis pregnancy centers using deceptive tactics and false claims to dissuade women from having abortions.”
Note that the law was tied to this report by [NARAL], a local affiliate of the nation’s leading abortion rights group. Consider also the fact that 40% of all pregnancies in New York City end in abortion (and fully 60% of all pregnancies to African American women). Those horrendous and chilling percentages are evidently not enough for the abortion industry and its ideological supporters. They want to shut down crisis pregnancy centers or render them ineffective….
Now, city officials in San Francisco have launched their own effort to shutter crisis pregnancy centers, claiming that staff at the centers impose “anti-abortion propaganda and mistruths on unsuspecting women.”
Note the reference to anti-abortion arguments as “propaganda,” as if there could only be one side to the issue. Dennis Herrera, the SF city attorney who is running for mayor, called the crisis pregnancy centers “right wing” and “politically motivated.”
There was no acknowledgment of the fact that pro-abortion groups such as Planned Parenthood are “left wing” and “politically motivated.” Furthermore, given the millions of dollars of income made by PP and other major components of the abortion industry, the phrase “financially motivated” should be added as well.
Where are the calls for honesty from Planned Parenthood?
