Real update & other stuff soon, but for now...

This week, a congressional report proved that anti-choice
"crisis pregnancy centers" have received $30 million of our tax
dollars to tell patients that, among other things, suicide,
breast cancer, and infertility are much more likely to occur
following an abortion. None of these claims is true, of course.

Take action to stop these clinics from deceiving women at their
most vulnerable moments:

These centers use neutral-sounding names and ads, falsely
promising full reproductive health services. And now, thanks to
an investigation by Rep. Henry Waxman (D-CA), we know exactly
what they're telling women, because female investigators called,
saying they were pregnant, and recorded their conversations.

What kinds of sage advice are our tax dollars funding? Here are
some direct quotes:

The research shows: Psychological stress after an abortion is NO
MORE COMMON than after childbirth.
But they said: Abortions cause "guilt ... sexual problems ...
suicidal ideas ... drug use, eating disorders" and "a downward
spiral."

The research shows: Abortion does NOT cause an increased risk of
breast cancer.
But they said: "All abortion causes an increased risk of breast
cancer in later years."

The research shows: Abortions in the first trimester, using the
most common abortion procedure, create NO risks for future
fertility.
But they said: It's "common" for abortion to lead to "many
miscarriages" or "permanent damage," such that "you wouldn't be
able to carry."

Our government should not be funding anti-choice propaganda.
Take action right now:

These examples don't represent just a few bad apples. The vast
majority (87 percent) of centers called in this study provided
false or misleading information about the health effects of
abortion.
