Pro-choicer on CA law: Don’t make pregnancy centers refer for abortion

by Kelli 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 […]

California goes after pregnancy resource centers

by Carder I find it extremely difficult to understand how people who claim to care about women find it so threatening to inform them about accessing affordable health care…. We can all agree that women deserve to have all the information in front of them when they make some of the most important decisions they […]

NARAL lied: No “deceptive” pregnancy center ads pulled by Google

NARAL - Thank You Google On April 28 NARAL made a media splash by claiming it had gotten Google to remove a large number of ”deceptive ads from anti-choice crisis pregnancy centers.”

Brrr! Polar Plunge raises funds for pregnancy center

winterplunge-logo-300-x-265by Lead moderator Carla

NARAL: It’s a “threat” to give free stuff to pregnant moms in need

[I]f the case were about transparency, then the City Council — and state legislators — should get busy passing legislation requiring abortion clinics to post how many abortions they have provided, how many women have been seriously injured or died in a clinic and whether the clinic has ever lost its license. That would be […]

Ambitious expansion of urban crisis pregnancy outreach underway

slattery-courtFor 28 years Chris Slattery (pictured right), founder of Expectant Mother Care Frontline Pregnancy Centers, has focused on helping pregnant mothers in crisis in the New York City area, where 40% of all babies are killed by abortion, and worse, 60% of all black babies.

EMC now operates in 12 locations in four NYC boroughs.

But this summer Slattery plans to exponentially expand EMC’s urban outreach to 10 other major U.S. cities with high abortion rates and underrepresented crisis pregnancy outreach – Austin, Baltimore, Buffalo, Charlotte, Cleveland, Detroit, Miami, Philadelphia, San Antonio, and Washington, D.C.
