Congresswoman Carolyn B. Maloney has introduced a “Stop Deceptive Advertising for Women’s Services Act” which is targeting Planned Parenthood’s nemesis, the Crisis Pregnancy Centers.
“New York City has seen firsthand how crisis pregnancy centers deliberately confuse women by establishing themselves near legitimate reproductive health care centers. These fake clinics have opened in close proximity to our Brooklyn and Bronx centers, misleading clients seeking the unbiased care that Planned Parenthood provides. Planned Parenthood knows that women are completely capable of making the best decision for themselves and their families – without coercion, intimidation or lies. We provide our patients with a full range of medically accurate information about our services, as well as comprehensive unbiased counseling on all pregnancy options, including carrying a pregnancy to term, adoption, and abortion. As health care providers you need to be honest with your patients. Fake clinics are not honest. They are not health care providers and they need to stop pretending to be,” said Joan Malin, President and CEO of Planned Parenthood of New York City.
If it wasn’t so evil you could almost admire the Orwellian language used. "legitimate reproductive health care centers" are the ones that help you not reproduce and the "deceptive" ones are the ones that help support you to reproduce. Planned Parenthood fights tooth and nail to prevent mandatory access to ultrasounds yet have the nerve to talk about lies and coercion. Their whole use of choice is what is deceptive and should be stopped. If they really supported choice there would be Planned Parenthood Maternity Hospitals. So can anybody be surprised that their so-called counselors push women towards the "choice" that financially benefits them?
