What are Crisis Pregnancy Centers?
Crisis pregnancy centers are anti-abortion counseling centers that often use deceptive advertising practices to lure in people facing unplanned pregnancies. CPCs are unregulated by the state and often give out false medical information and biased counseling under the guise of being a real healthcare provider.
Right now, Connecticut residents are being lied to, deceived, and shamed by anti-abortion CPCs when they are seeking legitimate medical care.
When someone is seeking a clinic, they should be able to find one.
It's time to hold CPCs accountable.
Crisis pregnancy centers are an imminent threat to people seeking reproductive healthcare in Connecticut. Currently, there are about 25 CPCs and only 18 licensed family planning clinics in Connecticut. CPCs do not provide or refer for abortion care, emergency contraception, or birth control, but often try to falsely present themselves as comprehensive reproductive healthcare clinics. Once inside, people are often lied to, shamed, and pressured about their reproductive healthcare decisions.
This website will help you spot the signs of a CPC and direct you to where you can get real (licensed clinic) reproductive healthcare.
