User:ATP/Crisis pregnancy center

From RationalWiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

A crisis pregnancy center is an organization designed to deter pregnant women from using emergency contraception or having a legal abortion. Often run by well-funded anti-choice organizations, they purport to give comprehensive information to women about their pregnancy options, but instead subject the woman to a barrage of propaganda and misinformation.


A multitude of tactics are used to coerce women to give birth. Graphic videos of abortions are shown to cause revulsion, although footage of childbirth, either vaginal or cesarean (they can both be unpleasant sights), are not shown. Every conceivable risk of abortion is discussed, although the not-inconsequential risks of carrying a child to term and delivery are avoided completely.
