Raise Awareness About Crisis Pregnancy Centers Through Pop Culture

Black Women for Wellness Action Project in partnership with Courage California launched the You Deserve Better campaign to drive awareness and action about the deceptive practices of crisis pregnancy centers. Crisis Pregnancy Centers (CPCs) are fake health clinics funded and operated by anti-abortion religious organizations. They are designed to trick pregnant people considering abortion by posing as full-service women’s health clinics. CPCs are set up near legitimate full-service reproductive health clinics to intercept women with unintended pregnancies who might be considering abortion. We must use our platform to raise awareness and stop the deceptive practices so all women have fair access to their reproductive rights.
