In Their Own Words
Intentionally Misleading Pregnant People
Women of color are specifically targeted by fake clinics
From the National Women's Law Center report: "Care Net – which calls itself the 'largest network of pregnancy centers in North America' – developed an Urban Initiative “to reach under served and over-aborted people,” specifically women of color, that it claims are being targeted by abortion providers. How?
- Opening new “pregnancy center ministries in underserved areas,”
- Recruiting “champions for life in urban communities,”
- “Creat[ing] powerful multimedia collateral to help reach abortion-vulnerable inner city people.”
The effort is now renamed the Underserved Outreach Initiative, which is “first seeking to serve the community with the highest abortion rate – African Americans,” and then plans to target Hispanic women. Care Net claims that “Everywhere [women in urban communities] turn, they receive the message that abortion is an equally positive option when choosing how to respond to a crisis pregnancy.”
First Resort is a CPC that sued the city of San Francisco over transparent advertising requirements. First Resort has closed, and now Ms. Plunkett leads Restore Women's Wellness Center, a counseling center for low-income women.
