Exposing Anti-Choice Abortion Clinics

 This is is dispicable and should be condemned by everyone, especially by people who call themselves Christians. Those involved should be arrested.

Exposing Anti-Choice Abortion Clinics

Misleading ‘crisis pregnancy centers’ are appearing across America, aiming to limit or even prevent women from exploring all of their legal health care options.

According to a recent Planned Parenthood email, a 17-year-old girl mistakenly walked into a crisis pregnancy center thinking it was Planned Parenthood, which was next door. “The group took down the girl’s confidential personal information and told her to come back for her appointment, which they said would be in their ‘other office’ (the real Planned Parenthood office nearby).”

When she showed up for her nonexistent appointment, she was met by the police, who had been erroneously tipped that a minor was being forced to abort. The crisis pregnancy center staff followed up this harassment by staking out the girl’s house, phoning her father at work, and even talking to her classmates about her pregnancy, urging them to harass her.

I contacted Jennifer Jorczak of Planned Parenthood of Indiana to verify this story, and while she was unable to provide details out of respect for the patient’s privacy, she confirmed that everything in the initial action alert email was true.

This humiliating and frustrating experience seems, by all accounts, to await more American women in the near future. And the best part? It’s funded by your tax dollars.

Even here in the liberal city of Austin, Texas, the signs are everywhere: “Pregnant? Need help?”

    Again, we let logic from the seventeenth-century blind us in making choices about health and well-being in today’s society….

    I’m appalled.

    If I had not had access to a Planned parenthood in my area, I would be dead. None of the local doctors would help me even though it was medically necessary that I have one or I would have died. I am so grateful to Planed Parenthood for all their support and bravery.

    I used a group like this one back in the 1980’s and got a free pregnancy test. That was before drugstores sold tests – you had to be tested in a doctor’s office. When it was positive they tried to intimidate me into their anti-choice way of thinking. I laughed at them and went to Planned Parenthood for an abortion. Idiots.

    Hello from another guy in Austin! I know what you’re talking about… those signs are everywhere in town. Did the ‘crisis pregnancy’ call that you mention take place in Austin?
