California

5 Scary Facts:

  • NARAL Pro-Choice California conducted an undercover investigation and found that 53 of 58 California counties have at least one CPC (crisis pregnancy center) with antiabortion rights activists spreading false and manipulative information. (Source)
  • The Reproductive FACT act prevented fake clinics from lying to pregnant people about being medical facilities. It also said that clinics had to post information about the state's reproductive programs. Fake clinics didn't like that, sued under the guise of "free speech," and the case is going to the Supreme Court. (Source)
  • After waffling on the issue, a California nursing board agreed to allowing classes in "abortion reversal." Just so we're clear, "abortion reversal" is a fake term created by anti-choice people to discredit the abortion pill. (Source)
  • Here is some good news for California but some bad news for the rest of the US. In 2014, California passed the only abortion-related law that increased the number of abortion providers. The law (AB 154) allows non-physician health care providers to provide certain abortion services. (Source)
  • According to Guttmacher, "In 2014, some 43% of California counties had no clinics that provided abortions, and 5% of California women lived in those counties." (Source)
