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. 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.

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 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.”

#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”!

"It’s hard enough for us to find culturally competent, language-accessible, affirming health care providers. The last thing we need is to fear being fed lies or serving as guinea pigs in an experiment to suit an anti-abortion agenda, and we certainly don’t need compassionate care providers “gagged” from giving information about our legitimate health care options." #CantReverseFacts

Who is Surprised a Fake Clinic Operator Is Misrepresenting Feminism, Too?

They've said it countless times, both in efforts to diminish the work of early feminists and to bolster an argument for “pro-life feminism,” which isn’t even a thing. But recent comments made by the President of Human Coalition – a chain of anti-abortion fake clinics – struck a nerve.

Trump’s Pro-Life Sleeper Cell at HHS

The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has fallen especially victim to this, as conservatives view a person's right to health and personal autonomy for themselves and their families as an increasingly political act.

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.
