Georgia lawmakers have approved state funding of up to $2m for unlicensed crisis pregnancy centers. The 'centers' have been dubbed “fake abortion clinics” by some advocates.
The bill will now go before Governor Nathan Deal for his signature. It specifies that abortion care should not be mentioned when discussing healthcare options for pregnant women
Crisis pregnancy centers are non-medical facilities whose purpose is to counsel women out of having abortions. Many of these clinics have confusing names and advertising that suggest they provide abortion services. Others espouse misleading medical information to discourage women from having abortions.
There are more than 4,000 CPCs in the US and at least 12 states fund CPCs directly.
The Guardian reports counselors at these centers will often tell women that condoms are ineffective, that they will be unable to get pregnant again if they have an abortion, and that abortion and birth control cause cancer.
