New regulation needed for "crisis pregnancy centers"

Women deserve better:

Chapel Hill’s town council has adopted a resolution calling on the General Assembly to promote unbiased medical information for pregnant women, free of what it calls the intimidation and harassment in “crisis pregnancy centers” – organizations that attempt to persuade women not to have abortions.

And here are a few words from NARAL Pro-Choice in NC:

"No matter how a person feels about the question of legal abortion, everyone can agree that women should never be misled when seeking information about pregnancy, birth control, abortion, or sexually transmitted infections. Yet it is happening across the state," said Carey Pope, executive director of NARAL Pro-Choice North Carolina.

"Our investigation of CPCs in North Carolina makes clear that our state's leaders cannot ignore how these centers intentionally mislead and misinform women, including those facing unintended pregnancies,” Pope said. "We are committed to working with lawmakers to ensure that North Carolinians have access to factually accurate information when making decisions about their health, and that begins with ending the deceptive practices uncovered in our report."

Allowing these snake-oil salesmen (and women) to continue their operations is not only an insult to NC's female population, it's a direct threat to their health and well-being.
