Every week it seems the mainstream media runs another free ad disguised as a news article for the abortion industry.
This week, the Winnipeg Free Press published a lengthy story about the upcoming 35th anniversary of a local abortion center.
The Women’s Health Clinic began in 1981 to offer a “safe environment where women receive fair and non-judgmental treatment.” Based on the report, it appears that the facility always counseled women about abortions and gave them referrals; but in 2006, it began doing abortions on site.
The abortion center now has facilities in Winnipeg, Manitoba and Saskatchewan, where it says it offers women “comprehensive” health care services, including treatment for eating disorders, maternal health care, birth control and – of course – abortions.
The report notes that the abortion center welcomed the Manitoba Birth Centre as part of its operations in 2011. That means the center is helping some women give birth to healthy babies while helping others abort their unborn babies.
Here’s more from the report:
The Women’s Health Clinic started off as a group of volunteers who wanted to provide information regarding pregnancy and options for women in the community. Today, the clinic has more than 150 employees and more than 60 active volunteers. The clinic has expanded its programs based on clients’ needs.
“We like to think of ourselves as an organization that provides a full, continuing, and comprehensive approach to reproductive health,” [maternal health and wellness manager Trina] Larsen said.
Women’s Health Clinic works based on the understanding that people are experts on their own needs.
“People that come to the clinic feel respected, feel heard, and they feel empowered. They walk away feeling like they were empowered to make decisions that felt right to them. And sometimes that’s the first time in a long time or the first time that this had happened with a health provider.” sexual and reproductive health educator Kate McIntyre said.
Larsen said they still aim to provide their clients with the information and tools they need to make the best decision for them.
Many abortion facilities, including Planned Parenthood, claim to offer women comprehensive health care, counseling and choices about their pregnancies. However, women often report being pressured toward abortion with little or no information about its risks or alternatives.
Several former Planned Parenthood employees revealed that it demands that its facilities meet quotas for abortions. In 2014, many people also were shocked to learn that Planned Parenthood gives awards to its facilities for killing more babies in abortions.
Facilities that do abortions also have been caught lying to women and leading them to believe that abortions are risk-free. Pro-abortion groups routinely fight against laws that require abortion facilities to inform women that there are risks, including infertility, future miscarriages, breast cancer, psychological problems and even death.
They keep women in the dark about their unborn babies’ development, too. Former abortion clinic workers have said they would tell women that they were “just getting rid of a blob of tissue,” though most unborn babies who are aborted already have a heartbeat and detectable brain waves.
The abortion industry likes to say it trusts women to make their own decisions, but many abortion facilities don’t trust women with the information that allows them to make an informed decision for themselves and their unborn babies.
