Boo-Hoo, Crisis Pregnancy Centers Upset About Not Being Allowed to Misrepresent Themselves
So, Baltimore, Maryland has passed a new law (along with Austen, TX) that so called "crisis pregnancy centers" must clearly state on the outside of their store-fronts that they do not offer medical services, including birth-control or abortions. The white, male, fundies who run these centers are upset that they won't be allowed to continue to misrepresent themselves as providers of medical services. Boo-hoo to you. If you have a specific ministry that seeks to dissuade women from getting abortions, fine--its your right. But pretending to be a medical clinic so that you can kidnap and detain women who are in vulnerable positions, lie to them about your services and in many cases, pretend to schedule abortions for them and delay them until they are into their second trimester so that they may not be able to get/afford abortions is WRONG. Its immoral. Its a lie. If you know that your ministry is unsustainable without misrepresenting what you do and who you are, then you are EVIL. Just because you claim Jesus is your bestie, doesn't make lying, cheating, defrauding and terrorizing others right.
