Crisis Pregnancy Centers
These Black women lawmakers are fighting to stop it.
Crisis pregnancy centers are offering more medical services so they can bill insurers and become eligible for federal family planning grants.
Women already have a hard time getting birth control but people are bracing for things to get worse if changes to the country's family planning program are successful.
Diane Foley, who runs the federal family planning program known as Title X, was also critical of adoption as an option for women with unintended pregnancies, according to a Senate memo shared exclusively with Tonic.
As the former president and CEO of Life Network, Diane Foley used to run crisis pregnancy centers, which exist to convince women not to have abortions. Foley now has final say on which groups will be awarded Title X family planning grants.
The proposed change to the Title X family planning program is known as the "Protect Life Rule," which is deeply ironic as the policy shows little regard for the health and lives of the patients who rely on it.
The Supreme Court is hearing arguments in a case that pits reproductive rights advocates against faith-based "crisis pregnancy centers," whose sole purpose is to talk women out of abortion, often through deceptive means.
Lawmakers in King County, Washington just ruled that crisis pregnancy centers must inform women that they are not legitimate health care providers.
Anti-abortion groups are opening fake clinics near actual reproductive health care providers across the country in an attempt to shame and scare women into staying pregnant.
This morning, the New York Times published a column by someone representing Human Coalition, which the paper fails to mention is an anti-abortion nonprofit that calls abortion "a human rights holocaust."
Jex Blackmore, the director of the Detroit chapter of the Satanic Temple, started a blog to tell her abortion story and provide much-needed information about the process that no one talks about.
