Today’s Lady News: Lilith Fair Drops Reproductive Rights Group Off Charity List

  • Lilith Fair has dropped the National Abortion Rights Action League Pro-Choice North Carolina, as well as several so-called “crisis pregnancy centers,” from its Choose Your Charity Contest. Four days ago, the women’s music festival listed NARAL, several maternity homes, and several CPCs, as potential grantees of the charity contest. Abortion supporters complained, saying that CPCs (which often are located near abortion clinics) provide inaccurate information to women to dissuade them from having an abortion. Today, Lilith Fair announced it would be dropping the CPCs, as well as NARAL, from the list. However, at least one women’s health center that provides abortion was left on the list.

  • Next week, Austin, Texas, will consider a proposed ordinance for so-called “crisis pregnancy centers” which will require them to notify visitors that they don’t make referrals for contraception or abortion. If the ordinance passes, Austin would become the second city, after Baltimore, Maryland, to require CPCs to clarify that they do not provide medical services. [Austin Chronicle]
