In order to create the environmentally sustainable, socially just and spiritually fulfilling future we want to see, women ought to be empowered to make informed decisions about their reproductive health, free from coercion.
According to NARAL Pro-Choice California, the US is home to more than 3,500 centers that have named themselves “crisis pregnancy centers” (CPCs) that are promoted as comprehensive reproductive health clinics. However, these centers exist to block women from accessing contraception and abortion services and they promote their agenda at the expense of women’s health.
At our May monthly gathering, Rebecca Griffin of NARAL Pro-Choice California will talk about their year-long undercover investigation of California’s CPCs and how they are using cultural and legislative organizing to hold them accountable.
