A pro-choice organization in Virginia has finished a year long investigation of Virginia crisis pregnancy centers (CPCs) and claims that women are consistently given false medical information in them.
Over the course of the year the group claims to have heard the following tall tales from CPCs:
“Hormonal contraception will make your hair fall out.”
“Condoms are naturally porous, so they don’t protect against STIs.”
“Taking the birth control pill is like putting a
small child on steroids.”
“Sometimes the IUD grows into the tissue of the
“Abortions are performed with hooks.”
“The rhythm method is scientifically proven to be the most effective form of contraception.”
If they are really passing out this kind of medical misinformation, it is particularly disturbing because these CPCs are also publicly funded through the sale of “Choose Life” license plates.
