Beware of Fake Clinics
Excerpts from National Abortion Federation website:
Crisis Pregnancy Centers (CPCs) have a long history of intentionally misleading women to prevent them from accessing abortion care. For example some intentionally choose their name to mislead women into believing that they offer a wide range of services, including family planning and abortion care, when in fact they offer neither. They may offer free sonograms but will not give you a copy or send one to us for your continued care. CPCs advertise near the headings of Abortion, Pregnancy, Women’s Centers or Clinics. CPCs may locate themselves near legitimate abortion care providers as a deliberate attempt to lure patients into visiting their centers.
Although CPCs portray themselves as a medical clinic and urge women to come in for options counseling, they do not provide full options counseling and generally will not refer for abortion care or birth control. CPC’s have used tactics intended to delay and even harass or intimidate women from making the choice best for them and even give out false and misleading information in order to dissuade women from choosing abortion. For your own protection, ask the CPC you contact if they provide abortion care or give abortion referrals. Evasive and unclear answers to this question should make you suspicious.
