This is simply outrageous, but hardly a surprise. And this story comes from the UK — just imagine how much worse the ones in the U.S. can be!
Women receiving advice from pregnancy counselling centres run by faith-based and anti-abortion organisations are subjected to scaremongering, emotive language and inaccurate information about abortion, according to an undercover investigation by a pro-choice charity.
Hundreds of crisis pregnancy centres (CPCs) offer counselling independently of the NHS. They could take over work performed by abortion providers such as Marie Stopes and the British Pregnancy Advisory Service BPAS, after the government said it was considering handing the counselling role to “independent” organisations.
A survey of 10 centres operated by Christian and anti-abortion organisations found evidence in most of them of poor practice and factually incorrect advice, while the quality of counselling differs widely. Advice ranged from scaremongering – linking abortion with breast cancer, for example – to actions apparently designed to steer women away from abortion, such as showing them baby clothes and talking about “the child”.
Researchers pretending to be young women in the early stages of pregnancy conducted the survey for Education for Choice, a pro-choice charity providing education and training on abortion.

These women-hating religious conservatives will frighten and guilt you into having that baby, but they won’t do a fucking thing to help you care for it afterwards. But once he’s old enough to join the army, they’ll be ALL over him!
