Texas pregnancy centers offer mixed messages by offering abortifacient contraceptives

The Source rejects the premise that offering contraception encourages promiscuity, and frames its services as an intentional contrast from the rest of the pro-life movement. “It helps to show that not every pro-life activist says, ‘Put an aspirin between your legs and don’t have sex.’”

(Calvin Freiburger – LifeSiteNews) – As the Trump administration opens the door to legitimate health organizations receiving money that previously went to the abortion industry, pro-life pregnancy centers are hoping to seize the opportunity to grow. But one Texas-based pregnancy center alliance is trying to do so with an inconsistent stand on birth-control methods that can function as abortifacients.

In February, the Trump administration finalized the Protect Life Rule, which requires “clear financial and physical separation between Title X-funded projects and programs or facilities where abortion is a method of family planning” and bans “referral for abortion as a method of family planning.”

The rule is projected to cut almost $60 million from the $563.8 million Planned Parenthood received during the most recent fiscal year, provoking multiple lawsuits and leading Planned Parenthood to voluntarily withdraw from the program rather than comply with the new conditions.  View article →
