So much for giving women important information to guide their decisions:
For the past year, NARAL Pro-Choice North Carolina has been investigating the state's 122 crisis pregnancy centers. Director Carey Pope says they found that, "Staff and volunteers often use propaganda to dissuade women from abortions." Previous research has found that the centers often lie to women about abortion being linked to breast cancer, infertility, and mental illness.
Which is bad enough, but this stuff is just crazy:
NARAL found found some other disturbing inormation about how women are treated at the pregnancy centers. A Jewish woman who posed as a pregnant woman as part of the investigation was told at five centers that she wouldn't go to heaven unless she converted to Christianity, and one woman told her she should become a "born-again virgin." The facilities were part of the Carolina Pregnancy Care Fellowship, which represents 67 anti-abortion centers in the state.
That whole "Tarheel Taliban" thing is starting to sound less like a joke and more like a solid analogy.
