For Sexual and Reproductive Health Services:
If I need help, should I consider going to a Crisis Pregnancy Center?
When seeking reproductive health services, be sure to go to clinics that offer the full range of reproductive services so that you can consider all your options. If you are considering an abortion, ask the clinic if they offer abortion services before you go in for your first appointment.
From the Planned Parenthood Website:
“Crisis pregnancy centers often pretend to be real health care providers — but many are not. These fake clinics often trick women with false advertising. They have a history of giving women wrong, biased information to scare them into not having abortions. They may make women think they will be offered unbiased information and a full range of health services. “
