Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), along with fellow pro-abortion senators, introduced legislation last week attacking pro-life pregnancy resource centers that have been helping pregnant women with life-affirming options for decades — for free — in communities across the United States and even around the world. This attack reveals the hypocrisy of abortion advocates who both expect pro-lifers to save the world if abortion is outlawed and want to shut down the pro-life centers that are actively helping women facing unplanned pregnancies.
In a tweet, Warren noted that she thinks, “With Roe gone, it’s more important than ever to crack down on so-called ‘crisis pregnancy centers’ that mislead and deceive patients seeking abortion care.” But the question is… why? Is it really because these centers are deceptive when telling women about fetal development, abortion procedures and risks, and offering free ultrasounds and material help? If deception is the issue, why isn’t Warren going after the abortion industry for lying to women and coercing them into abortions (and getting paid to do it)?
Might Warren and her colleagues instead be attacking pregnancy centers because without Roe, abortion businesses may face closure or a decline in patients and income, and they view pregnancy centers as their competition? Shutting down or tying the hands of the centers that provide abortion alternatives will only accomplish one thing: more women will walk through the doors of abortion facilities.
The bill implies mothers are incapable The bill, the “Stop Anti-Abortion Disinformation Act,” or the “SAD Act” would “direct the Federal Trade Commission to prescribe rules prohibiting disinformation in the advertising of abortion services, and for other purposes.” In the bill, the senators claim abortion is “an essential component of reproductive health care” and that women should have the “freedom to decide whether and when to have a child” because it is “key to the ability of an individual to participate fully in our democracy.”
With Roe gone, it’s more important than ever to crack down on so-called "crisis pregnancy centers" that mislead and deceive patients seeking abortion care. My bill with @SenatorMenendez would stop these harmful practices.https://t.co/kOoa9GWLyk
