“This was about ten years ago but I still think about it to this day. A close friend of mine tried to hide her pregnancy for a long time, as if it would just go away. I finally convinced her to see someone. She went to a place called CareNet, a place we had seen advertisements for in a local paper. It promised a free pregnancy test, sonograms, and reproductive option counseling. She was wooden by the time she went and was most likely completely separated from her pregnancy. So despite the propaganda videos, the pamphlets, and pressure from the center’s staff, she decided she wanted to have an abortion. They told her that there was a week-long waiting period that she had to go through to be sure she really wanted it. She went back a week later still set on having the procedure. The receptionist said, “I’m sorry, I seem to have lost record of your appointment. Come back in four days when the doctor will be here next.” When she went back in four days, they told her the doctor was sick. I told her it seemed sketchy and that she should go to a Planned Parenthood clinic. The nearest one was 45 miles away. Because of her work schedule, she was only able to go five days after that. When she arrived at the clinic they told her she was 17 weeks along. In our state you can only have an abortion up to 16 weeks unless it’s an emergency … She was forced to carry to term and give the baby up for adoption.”

This is what Crisis Pregnancy Centers do. Their agenda is to prevent as many people as possible from having abortions by any means necessary. They do not care about your health, wishes, or well-being. All they care about is taking away your reproductive choices. They are usually religiously affiliated, deeply misogynistic, and they will lie to you. They do not want to help you. They want to control you.
