Abstract

Since Roe v. Wade, facilities around the United States have provided counseling and abortion alternatives to pregnant women. Often called a crisis pregnancy centers (CPCs), these centers provide support to women who are in need of pregnancy services and do not wish to have an abortion. However, as largely Christian nonprofits, these centers are legally exempt from many qualifications applied to licensed medical clinics, something they have been repeatedly attacked for. This bill raises the standards for CPCs, forcing them to provide patients with complete, accurate information that neither endangers the health and wellbeing of CPC patients nor infringes the freedom of speech or religion of CPC staff.

Crisis Pregnancy Centers

Since Roe v. Wade, facilities around the United States have provided counseling and abortion alternatives to pregnant women. Often called a crisis pregnancy centers (CPCs), these centers provide support to women who are in need of pregnancy services and do not wish to have an abortion. However, as largely Christian nonprofits, these centers are legally exempt from many qualifications applied to licensed medical clinics, something they have been repeatedly attacked for. This bill raises the standards for CPCs, forcing them to provide patients with complete, accurate information that neither endangers the health and wellbeing of CPC patients nor infringes the freedom of speech or religion of CPC staff.
