CPC Moves in Across the Street
Jackson Women’s Health Organization is the last remaining abortion clinic in the state of Mississippi, a fact bemoaned by many people wanting greater access to abortion. When the Center for Pregnancy Choices (CPC) opened a center across the street from the abortion clinic, New York Magazine reported that the new center would lure and lie “to persuade women into their center instead, often claiming that their centers can offer the services they may need.” The truth is that CPC offers free ultrasound and real choice, something that is not lost on women. Ashleigh, a woman who went to a central Ohio pregnancy center for help, stated, “When I went there, the lady there was 100 percent non-judgmental and my decision wasn’t going to make them any profit. That’s what I was looking for, someone to talk to who wasn’t going to profit off me or my baby.” CareNet has no financial interest in a woman’s choice.
