Crisis pregnancy centers in Virginia, which provide anti-abortion counseling, are offering misleading advice to women, the National Abortion Rights Action League said today.
A year-long investigation by the NARAL Pro-Choice Virginia Foundation found that the centers are seeking to intimidate women into not choosing an abortion, sometimes at risk to their health…
According to the NARAL investigation, some women were told [lies] that 28 percent of women attempt suicide after an abortion and that a doctor performing an abortion could accidentally “suck out your bowels…”
The NARAL investigation said that many of the 52 crisis pregnancy centers are staffed by personnel who are not medically trained. Its investigation, which included 28 in-person visits, found that some of the centers offered factually erroneous information.
Ughh. This is like when people found out certain high school “sex ed” “teachers” were purposely telling their students that condoms had like a 30% failure rate or something. They thought it would scare them out of having sex… instead it made them think, “Why even bother with condoms?”
This is just disgusting.
