Crisis Pregnancy Centers
As physicians, we believe that every woman deserves to receive high-quality care and medically accurate counseling, whether she is planning to have an abortion or continue her pregnancy. We also believe that women deserve to know what to expect from a crisis pregnancy center (CPC)—in particular, what services they do and do not provide.
Some cities require CPCs to post signs that state whether they offer referrals for contraception, prenatal care, or abortion, or if they don’t have medical professionals on staff. Requiring CPCs to be more honest about their services enables pregnant women to receive the care they are seeking without the potential delays and biased misinformation that CPCs are reputed for.
Misleading practices by CPCs cause pregnant women to miss out on necessary medical care. Find out more about how we are helping to protect the health of pregnant women.
