Let's Watch Samantha Bee (and Caped Magician Patton Oswalt) Look Into Crisis Pregnancy Centers

Posted By on Tue, May 10, 2016 at 11:00 AM

Feelin' pregnant? Monday's Full Frontal with Samantha Bee broadcast a report on "crisis pregnancy centers"—antiabortion clinics that often masquerade as abortion clinics and legitimate pregnancy centers.

“A crisis pregnancy center is a fake abortion clinic,” Vicki Saporta of the National Abortion Federation says in the segment. “They want women to believe there are long-term negative consequences, like they won't be able to have children, like they will suffer from 'post abortion stress syndrome,' or that they would have an increased risk of breast cancer.”

Saporta says there are about twice as many of these "fake clinics" in the U.S. than there are actual abortion clinics.
