Protect Women - Protest the Pregnancy Center Bills

The State Senate Health & Long Term Care Committee has a public hearing on the bill attacking pregnancy centers at 8 a.m. on February 2.  Please contact the committee members with your comments as soon as possible.  The goal: To get the committee to either take no action on the bill, or to reject it outright.

This website keeps tabs on both the House and Senate versions of the bill:  I recommend you follow the issue via their website for the latest and most up-to-date details.

Not yet feeling enough outrage about this issue?  Consider these facts about the pregnancy centers being attacked by Planned Parenthood and its supporters:

  • they already advertise openly and honestly that they provide abortion alternatives, offering true choices to women;

  • they provide connections for women making tough decisions, and help for all of them, regardless of their choice.

Planned Parenthood shuns the label of "abortion provider," claiming they offer choices to women.  But 2004 statistics show that for every 180 abortions performed, they referred one woman for adoption services.  It would appear women get pretty limited choices when they go to Planned Parenthood for help.

And finally, read this column by Michelle Malkin.  Abortion clinics routinely get special treatment under the law, even when it puts women in danger. 

In Washington State, for example, abortion clinics need only be inspected by other abortion providing agencies, not by the Department of Health or any other independent agency, according to this article and the Washington Administrative Code.  

Sounds pretty convenient... for the abortion agencies.  Once again, women's safety seems to take a backseat.

Wasn't Roe v. Wade supposedly about making sure women had access to safe, legal abortions?  Hmm.
