Spreading lies about abortion

Is this an ad for a legitimate medical facility?

The answer may surprise you.
"Crisis pregnancy centers" (CPCs) spend millions of dollars on misleading advertisements, portraying themselves as safe havens for women in need.
Their real goal? To make women feel too guilty or scared to choose abortion by providing information that is medically inaccurate and manipulative.
But we're not buying it. That's why we're launching an online quiz that unmasks the lies these fake clinics tell women every day. Test your CPC know-how – take our short quiz today.
NARAL Pro-Choice America has been fighting against CPCs' deceptive tactics for years. Time and time again, we've found that CPCs make unsubstantiated claims about legal abortion and even birth control – all intended to deceive the women who come to them for help.
CPCs are everywhere, from Seattle to Brooklyn, in politically progressive and conservative communities alike. And they pose as comprehensive health-care clinics. But most are unlicensed and unregulated organizations staffed by anti-choice volunteers who intentionally misinform women.
Can you spot what's fact and what's fiction? Take our short CPC quiz and see if you're right!
Thank you for all that you do to protect a woman's right to choose.
My best,
Nancy Keenan
President, NARAL Pro-Choice America
