Hold Fake Clinics Accountable
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. The court’s narrow 5-4 decision in favor of fake clinic lies is a setback, but we’re going to keep fighting to end the deception and shaming nationwide. The case deals with California’s Reproductive FACT Act, which was meant to regulate fake clinics by providing simple disclosure statements. The loss of this common-sense and necessary law will harm countless women and especially threaten women of color who are often targeted by fake clinics’ lies. But we’ve got some tricks up our sleeves and we’re going to keep the fight against fake clinics wherever and however they try to hide who they really are. Education is the first step.
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 the NIFLA v. Becerra case. The full brief can be found here.
We maintain a comprehensive list of every fake clinic in the country for you to search and root out the deception happening in your community.

We teamed up with our friends from Advocates for Youth and Lady Parts Justice for an Act and Learn webinar to profile our ongoing campaigns to hold fake clinics accountable, and how you can get involved.
Reproaction supporters demanded former 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.”
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.
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”!
