FEDERALLY FUNDED PREGNANCY RESOURCE CENTERS MISLED TEENS ABOUT ABORTION RISKS




This week, Congressman Henry Waxman released a new study finding that federally funded pregnancy resource centers often misled pregnant teens about the medical risks of abortions. Female investigators, who posed as pregnant 17-year-olds seeking advise about an unintended pregnancy, telephoned the 25 pregnancy resource centers that have received capacity-building funds from the Department of Health and Human Services.

The results were alarming. Eighty-seven percent of the centers reached by investigators provided false or misleading information about abortion, telling investigators that abortion lead to breast cancer, infertility and mental illness.

This disturbing tactic denies teenagers and women vital health information, prevents them from making an informed decision, and is not an acceptable public helth practice.

Read the report:

***These places are probably christian right ran clinics that are trying to scare these women. But not all of them are turning down the abortions, so that means that all of their operatives are still performing such techniques as abortions!!!
