Hearing in LA on Crisis Pregnancy Centers – Jan 23 at 10:30 AM

The Health Committee of the LA City Council is holding a hearing on false advertising by anti-choice crisis pregnancy centers, facilities that use lies and manipulation to block
women from accessing abortion care.

 

Join us to pressure the City Council and City Attorney to investigate false advertising by CPCs in LA and hold violators accountable.

 

When: Monday, January 23rd, 10:30 AM

Where: LA City Hall, 200 North Spring St.

 

Background: 

 

NARAL has been working to hold anti-choice CPCs accountable for their deceptive tactics. CPCs masquerade as legitimate clinics, and place advertisements like this to make people
think they can get an abortion when all they are going to get is medical misinformation and shaming
.

Only two cities in the country have passed laws creating specific penalties for this kind of false advertising by CPCs: San Francisco and Oakland. LA
has been a leader
 in enforcing NARAL’s statewide law requiring CPCs to share reproductive health information. We want them to take the next steps by investigating these false advertising practices and holding CPCs accountable for lying to women. This would
be a groundbreaking effort to put CPCs on the defense and protect consumers from their devious approach. 

 

We need to show the City Council and City Attorney that there is a groundswell of support for them to take public action. Members of the public can speak for 1-2 minutes depending
how many people are in attendance. We will send you talking points and can help with your statement. If you don’t want to speak, you can just attend to help us show visible support for this important action.

 

Let me know if you have any questions. I hope to see you on the 23rd.

 

-Rebecca
