More on the pro-choice victory in Chapel Hill

In case you missed it or maybe just saw the headline, the folks at NARAL-Pro Choice NC have posted an excellent summary of Tuesday night’s pro-choice victory before the Chapel Hill town council.

“Last night NARAL Pro-Choice North Carolina presented a resolution to the Chapel Hill Town Council opposing the deceptive practices of Crisis Pregnancy Centers in North Carolina, and the Town Council voted unanimously to pass it. Crisis Pregnancy Centers (CPCs) are heavily advertised resources for women facing unintended pregnancies. What isn’t advertised is that the majority of CPCs are funded and staffed by medically-uncertified anti-choice activists who provide misleading and medically inaccurate information to clients, exaggerating (and more often inventing) abortion risks and side effects to intimidate women into ruling out abortion as an option.

As Suzanne Buckley, executive director of NARAL Pro-Choice North Carolina, said at last night’s meeting, ‘This is not about abortion, pro-choice or pro-life, [. . .] I think everyone can agree that no one should be misled about their health care options.’”
