Thinking of having an abortion , just go to a Crisis Pregnancy Center for help..
Actually I would strongly NOT advise going to a CPC ( Crisis Pregnancy Center) I believe they are just horrible , deceitful and should really be illegal. At least knowingly giving out false and purposely misleading "information" should be illegal.
What do you think?
Would you donate money to a CPC?
Would you use one or advise a friend to use one? if yes then why?
more information ( I copied information from 2 different sources , the info directly below is from this first link and a second link is further below - http://www.prochoiceamerica.org/media/fa...)
Today, there are CPCs in every state and dozens of countries overseas.5 Many are supported by one of three major umbrella organizations: the National Institute of Family and Life Advocates
(NIFLA), Care Net, and Heartbeat International.
a young mother of two tells a CPC counselor that she is considering abortion because her boyfriend is abusive and she needs to do
what is best for her children. The counselor protests, arguing “for all you know, the baby changes him.” 36 - Suggesting a woman remain in an abusive relationship reveals that, to this counselor, women’s health and safety are hardly even afterthoughts.
While CPCs may falsely suggest that they provide a full range of reproductive-health services, they clearly do not. Some centers do not have any medically trained or medically supervised personnel on staff at all.16
The report found that 87 percent of these CPCs provided either false or misleading information about the health effects of abortion. Specifically, several center employees told the women that abortion increases the risk of breast cancer, despite the overwhelming medical consensus that no such link exists
In 2002, then-New York Attorney General Eliot Spitzer issued subpoenas to a number of CPCs based on concerns that their advertising and business practices could lead women to believe that the centers provided medical services—
e crisis pregnancy center movement and its supporters have furthered their efforts by seeking—and often receiving—state or federal funding.
(Info below was found in this site - http://www.tumblr.com/tagged/crisis-preg... )
Crisis pregnancy centers bully, lie and intimidate women out of receiving abortions. They masquerade as medical clinics but operate as unregulated centers funded and run by religious organizations OPPOSED TO BOTH abortion and CONTRACEPTION .
While the U.S. House is trying to prevent Planned Parenthood from receiving federal dollars, other legislation pending in the House — albeit quietly — would direct taxpayer money to crisis pregnancy centers,
No matter your opinion on abortion, most would agree that all people deserve to get medically-accurate information about their own bodies.
