The Supreme Court Undermined Young People’s Right to Abortion Care Today

In response to the Supreme Court decision blocking a California Law requiring crisis pregnancy centers to share information about abortion and contraception, Debra Hauser, president of Advocates for Youth, issued the following statement:

“At a time when Crisis Pregnancy Centers outnumber abortion clinics, and the President lauds ideological propaganda as fact – today’s Supreme Court decision is yet another blow to truth. The simple fact is that Crisis Pregnancy Centers offer deceptive and often unlicensed patient care, and perpetuate a culture where people are shamed for their personal healthcare choices. This ruling will only embolden fake clinics to deceive even more people.

“Roe is at greater risk than ever before. Trump, conservatives, and the anti-choice movement have been working together for decades with one goal in mind: ban abortion in America.

“However, young people will not let fake clinics stand in their way. They will continue developing innovative campaigns to expose Crisis Pregnancy Centers for what they are – anti-abortion centers with a mission to pressure people to carry even unwanted pregnancies to term.”
