Tell NY City Council: Stop Lies By Anti-Choice Pregnancy Centers
This petition made change with 658 supporters!
Crisis Pregnancy Centers often pass themselves off as comprehensive reproductive health clinics, when in reality they refuse to offer abortion or birth control services, information, or referrals, tricking women into entering an agenda-driven, anti-choice center.
We have at least 16 CPCs in New York City.
Women are subjected to false information and guilt-tripping about considering their full range of reproductive health options -- 87% of CPCs, or "fake clinics," lie or mislead about health impacts of abortion and birth control, according to a Congressional report.
Austin and Baltimore have passed truth-in-advertising legislation mandating that CPCs put up signs telling women they don't provide abortion or birth control information, so nobody can be tricked into entering.
The New York City Council is finally considering similiar legislation. Sign this petition to ask New York City Council Members to support this bill and stop the lies.
Then you can click here to sign a petition asking Congress to pass federal legislation to this effect and to stop spending our tax dollars on fake clinics.
