Hold Fake Clinics Accountable

Get Bold and Get Loud

01

Reproaction is a bold leader in the struggle to hold deceptive, anti-abortion fake clinics accountable for the harm they are causing to our communities as well as misuse of public funds.

Anti-abortion fake clinics – sometimes called crisis pregnancy or pregnancy resource centers –  hit the Supreme Court in the case of NIFLA v. Becerra. Oral arguments took place March 20 and a decision is expected in late spring or early summer of 2018. The case deals with California’s Reproductive FACT Act, which was meant to regulate fake clinics by doing two things. First, it makes unlicensed centers post on the wall that they are not licensed. Second, it makes all fake women’s health centers post a sign disclosing that the state provides information and resources to obtain contraception and abortion services. The fake clinics are saying it violates their First Amendment rights, which is an incorrect argument when we’re talking about a factual sign on a wall and no forced speech (unlike, say, in the 38 states where abortion providers are required to verbally deliver anti-abortion counseling written by state legislators that is often based on anti-abortion junk science.)

Reproaction was proud to sign on to the brief amicus curiae written by the Center for Reproductive Rights and National Women’s Law Center in support of the State of California’s arguments in this case. The full brief can be found here.

To prepare you for action leading up to and after the Court’s decision, we’ve compiled all our educational materials, activism resources, and shareable graphics in one place so you can get to work against fake clinics where you live!

You can take action right now: sign our pledge to get fake clinics out of your community! Also, be sure to sign up for our updates so you don’t miss a thing in our fake clinic campaigns and beyond.

Past Campaigns:

Governor Greitens: Enough is Enough!

Reproaction supporters demanded Missouri Governor Eric Greitens investigate state funding of fake women’s health centers, one of which recently had their director publicly celebrate the Ku Klux Klan’s involvement in Donald Trump’s election, saying it was “for the babies.”

#CuraFakeClinic

We got LOUD with SisterSong at Netroots Nation 2017 in Atlanta, leading a march of over 150 people to a rally in front of Cura Women’s Care Clinic, a fake women’s health center in downtown Atlanta operated by the shady anti-abortion group Human Coalition.

#HopeFakeClinic

Jenna Bush Hager, Today Show anchor, self-proclaimed Feminist, and daughter of former President George W. Bush, was scheduled to speak at a fundraiser for a fake women’s health center in Tennessee on 19 September 2017. That is, until we took action! We encouraged our supporters to tweet at Jenna and Today asking them not to support deception and shaming about abortion care, and within a week of starting our campaign, her keynote was cancelled for “unforeseen circumstances”!

Feel free to save these graphics and share them on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, or other social media platforms to expose a #FakeClinic near you.

Reproaction Raises Awareness Around Anti-Abortion Fake Clinics in Virginia

On Friday, January 19, Reproaction, NARAL Pro-Choice Virginia and the Virginia Latina Advocacy Network hosted a screening of the documentary “12th and Delaware.” The film follows an abortion clinic in Florida, and the crisis pregnancy center (CPC) across the street. In the film, staff at the CPC give an inside glimpse into the tactics these anti-abortion fake clinics commonly use to try to dissuade pregnant people from seeking abortions. The film also centers the abortion clinic, and the patients caught in the crosshairs of a charged political fight.

Real Alternatives or Real B.S.?

They’d probably describe you as pre-pregnant, as we know the goal of many “pro-lifers” is to make sure all sex has the consequence of conception and all women become mothers.

Reproaction and SisterSong Turn Out 150+ to Get Fake Clinics Out of Atlanta

150 to 200 people marched through the streets of Atlanta to Hurt Park, which is across the street from the #CuraFakeClinic. We then spoke truth to power. Our message is that we want anti-abortion clinics to own who they really are, and stop misleading and shaming people who are seeking abortions.
