Every day, more than 2,000 pregnancy resource centers across America help pregnant and parenting moms find the support they need to choose life for their babies.
They are non-profits, largely run by volunteers, and most are fully funded by donations from individuals. They provide everything from free ultrasounds and pregnancy tests, to temporary shelter, baby clothes, cribs and car seats, to counseling and help applying for jobs and government assistance.
But as they cut into the abortion industry’s profits, these pro-life centers are becoming a target of abortion activists. The radical pro-abortion group NARAL regularly smears pro-life pregnancy centers and lobbies for laws that force them to advertise abortions.
Now, another group called Lady Parts Justice League also is ganging up against their life-affirming work.
The Federalist reports the pro-abortion group recently launched a campaign to “expose fake clinics.” It will involve recruiting abortion activists to go undercover to pregnancy resource centers and catch them doing anything abortion activists don’t like.
LPJL describes itself as “a coven of hilarious bada– feminists who use humor and pop culture to expose the haters fighting against reproductive rights.”
Alliance Defending Freedom’s Alison Howard Centofante wrote for The Federalist:
Because pregnancy centers don’t hold to LPJL’s pro-abortion views (it has compared pregnancy to a tooth cavity), it has condemned the centers as “fake clinics,” and has even taken the time to make maps showing their locations.

Later, she continued:
Planned Parenthood’s annual report reveals that a pregnant woman going into a Planned Parenthood facility has a significant chance of obtaining an abortion, with 95.8 percent of its pregnancy-related services being abortion. Adoption referrals only make up one percent of its pregnancy services. Abortions, after all, bring in hundreds of millions of dollars for the company; healthy births aren’t anywhere near as good for the bottom line.
All of which is fine by LPJL, whose “feminists” consider it “predatory” to provide information that will help a woman keep her child alive. That’s out of touch with reality.
Abortion activists claim they want women to have a “choice” about their pregnancies, but they promote just one choice – abortion. What they really want from society is full support of the killing of unborn babies for any reason up to birth. They do not want anything to get in the way – including the truth – of women aborting their unborn babies.
Earlier this year, NARAL California director Amy Everitt told Bloomberg that pregnancy centers “are bullies” that give women false information and “shame” them into choosing life for their unborn babies.
The mainstream media has helped abortion activists push the false narrative. Bloomberg ran an attack piece parroting NARAL earlier this year. Women’s publications, including Cosmopolitan, Self and Teen Vogue, also have attacked pregnancy resource centers in the past because they offer women alternatives to abortion.
But as Centofante pointed out, what motive could non-profit pro-life pregnancy centers have in supporting women who choose life? There is no financial benefit – quite the opposite. As for shaming, many pregnancy resource centers also help post-abortive women by offering programs to help them heal and find forgiveness. Their motive truly is to help make the lives of women and their babies better through emotional, material and spiritual support.
