Manipulation, Lies, and Crisis Pregnancy Centers
by Lucy Font, accompanying Jenny Torres
On Saturday, November 9, I visited a Baltimore-based Crisis Pregnancy Center, posing as the concerned friend of a young woman with a pregnancy crisis. Crisis Pregnancy Centers are anti-choice non-profit organizations established to dissuade women from seeking abortion care. Their tactics include posing as a legitimate medical clinic, dissemination of misinformation, fear-mongering, and utilization of anti-choice rhetoric.
