  • i believe a crisis pregnancy center that is pro life should disclose that immediately , a plaque on the wall by the sign in desk or something. I have always deeply resented the tactics used by those places .

  • The crisis pregnancy center I went to when we were prego the first time was very PRO LIFE!

  • No, not really, but what I do think is they should be required to give out full disclosure for every procedure they do or have available to patients. I think their beliefs should not matter and the rules should be followed regardless.

  • I don't have a problem with requiring EVERYONE to make full disclosure. Most people know that crisis pregnancy centers are usually pro-life (anti-abortion), but there is nothing wrong with requiring them to disclose that up front. I am also in favor of abortionists being required to present all information, such as the baby's heart beating 18 days after conception, when the baby feels pain, and how early a baby can be born and survive outside the mother's womb. Too many secrets all around!

  • Most "Crisis Pregnancy Centers" are faith based so, if you can't figure out that they are not going to support you killing your baby then you have no common sense.

  • yup. Should be open policy on BOTH sides. They should disclose their pro-life stance AND abortion clinics should provide their patients with ALL their options and any aid that may be available to them.
    I am pro-choice but esp. INFORMED choices.

  • Yes. ALL businesses, whether pregnancy related or not, should be up front with what they do and don't offer... I have never heard of a CPC that was "faith based" here they are state run, so assuming they would take a stance on either side wouldn't make sense. It should be clear from the start what they do and don't offer so that patrons have the option to find care elsewhere...

  • Well, YES. And you can always ask questions too. Its all good.

  • I believe all places offering to help people should have full disclosures of what they will and won't do.

    Answer by NightPhoenix at 1:01 PM on Oct. 17, 2010

  • I believe that ANY person who labels themselves as a medical professional and/or performs medical procedures should absolutely have to completely discuss any of those procedures prior to performing them. Most people wouldn't get a shot or a tooth pulled without knowing what to expect during and after it was done ~ let alone without knowing HOW/WHY it was being done. Terminating a pregnancy should be no different.

    The only logical reason for not wanting the same for that particular procedure is bias or personal stupidity ... or a wish to keep other people ignorant of exactly what they are doing.
