Anti-abortion "crisis pregnancy centers" are scary
But this Halloween, we're fighting back to make sure anti-abortion "crisis pregnancy centers" (CPCs) stop haunting our communities. Scroll down to get started!
What are anti-abortion CPCs?
CPCs, or "fake clinics," are anti-abortion organizations that seek to intercept pregnant people who may be considering abortion and prevent them from accessing reproductive healthcare. Most CPCs are religiously-affiliated nonprofit organizations, and they present themselves as unbiased medical providers (even though they are not). CPCs use reproductive coercion, deceptive tactics, and medical disinformation to achieve their goals.
