NYC Forces “Crisis Pregnancy Centers” To Disclose Motives To Women

Some good news, finally: New York City’s City Council voted yesterday to require so-called “crisis pregnancy centers” to be more transparent about their anti-abortion motives to women.

There are different types of CPCs, but many are run by anti-abortion extremists which intentionally appear to look like abortion clinics from the outside but in actuality will dissuade women from ending a pregnancy through any tactic at all. The city council demanded that CPCs inform women on advertising and signs in entrances and waiting rooms that they do not actually provide abortions, emergency contraceptives or prenatal care. CPC employees will also be required to provide that information if asked about it over the phone or in person. NYC’s Mayor Michael Bloomberg is expected to sign the bill into law. Keep reading »

All The Deets On Bristol Palin’s Memoir, “Not Afraid Of Life”

Bristol Palin‘s memoir is coming out this summer and it will be called Not Afraid Of Life. Kudos to you for making reference to anti-abortion propaganda, Bristol! Not Afraid Of Life, which is being published by William Morrow, will cover her 20 years on Earth, including her appearance on “Dancing With the Stars,” her religious faith, and presumably her mother’s run as the Republican nominee for vice president of the United Stated. I, for one, am praying Bristol will dish some dirt on her baby daddy ex, Levi Johnston, but unfortunately the Palins seem to be too classy for that. More realistically, she’ll just tell us alllll about how every pregnant teen girl should totally have a baby because it’s so easy to get nationally televised TV gigs and book deals. Gooooooo abstinence?! [NY Times] Keep reading »

Bunny In A Blender: Anti-Abortion Group’s New Scare Tactic

Anti-abortion group The American Life League has released a new video in support of Congress defunding Planned Parenthood and it wants you to think that a doctor scraping an eight-week-old bunch of cells from a uterus is just like slaughtering a cute animal in a blender. Yep, a person dressed in hospital scrubs places a bunny in a blender, the screen goes black, the blender whirs, and the camera pans to a several-months-old Caucasian baby. Nuanced! My first thought was something that my Token Pro-Life Catholic Friend said to me about how he is against abortion because it’s “an act of violence.” Huh? I don’t see women’s health supporters using imagery so cruel. [YouTube via Feministing] Keep reading »
