“Pregnancy crisis centers” are a massive fraud, dangling promises of actual healthcare to women to try to discourage them from getting abortions, and then leaving them mostly on their own, often with funding from states who also don’t believe in providing adequate maternal or postpartum medical care to those who can’t afford it. And they’re run by people like this:
If they can get an “abortion-minded” woman to have a conversation, Pinson feels confident that the center’s staff can change her mind. In their counseling sessions, Pinson says, they “pour into girls,” persuading them that, no matter the obstacles in their lives, they can become successful mothers.
Pinson welcomes even the most devastating cases.
“I’ve seen a lot of 13-year-olds do phenomenal, absolutely phenomenal,” she said. “It doesn’t have to be a negative thing.”
She closely followed the case of the 10-year-old rape victim who was denied an abortion in Ohio last month. If that girl came into her center, Pinson would suggest she consider adoption, she said, adding that abortion would not fix the girl’s problems.
“That life is still a life and, even at 10, she knows a life is inside her.”
Every time one of the barbaric abortion bans that are now enforceable requires a girl to travel hundreds of miles to get an abortion or simply requires her to carry a pregnancy to term, the American abortion movement will be divided between people claiming the story is fake news and people praising the outcome as awesome. And there will be overlap because bad faith is the core operating principle of this particular creed.
