Crisis Pregnancy Centers: The Truth

Know before you go: the truth about so-called “crisis pregnancy centers” (CPC). It’s time we talk more about these anti-choice organizations that operate under the guise of a resource center for people who need an abortion. TBS’ Samantha Bee did a pretty entertaining break down of these CPCs on her show, Full Frontal.

Patients walking into these CPCs expect accurate information and compassion so they can make the best decisions for themselves. Instead, CPCs shame and stigmatize people out of seeking abortion. They run such successfully deceptive organizations, doctor’s offices often refer pregnant people to CPCs, not knowing that their patients are being steered into feeling shameful and regretful about ending their pregnancies.

Planned Parenthood Great Plains always offers options education for every person who is seeking an abortion. PPGP’s trained staff will go through all options like adoption and prenatal care before a person makes the decision to end a pregnancy. No shame. No stigma. No steering. That’s compassion. That’s health care.

Don’t be fooled. Here is a list of CPCs in and around cities where PPGP provides health care. And if you need to make an appointment at any of PPGP’s health centers, click here.
