How to Avoid Fake Women’s Health Centers:

During this time, it is vital that you also know how to avoid fake women’s health centers, also known as Crisis Pregnancy Centers. These organizations are not abortion providers and do not provide medically accurate information on reproductive healthcare services.

What is a fake clinic?

A fake women’s health clinic (also known as crisis pregnancy centers), are anti-abortion, not-for-profit organizations that pose as real medical facilities with the intention of shaming, scaring, and misleading people out of accessing the full range of reproductive healthcare including abortion care, emergency contraception, and birth control. Fake clinics are notorious for peddling misinformation about reproductive healthcare and often have affiliations to local religious organizations and/or national anti-abortion groups. They are not obligated to provide people with medically accurate information.

How do I spot a fake clinic?

We know that navigating the world of reproductive healthcare can already be tricky. When time is of the essence and resources may be limited, make sure you’re going to a legitimate, safe, trusted clinic. Here are a few red flags to be on the lookout for:

  •  Don’t trust the name alone. Fake clinics often purposefully choose names that sound pro-choice, like “Choices Women’s Center” (Fredericksburg, VA) or “A Woman’s Choice” (Herndon, VA).
  •  Look for religious affiliations. Many fake clinics will be funded by or have affiliations to local churches with anti-abortion beliefs. You may see references to religion on their website or when speaking with the fake clinic.
  • Are they a licensed medical facility? Fake clinics operate as non-profits, meaning they are not bound to the same safety or confidentiality standards like your trusted healthcare provider. They are not bound by HIPPA, and often do not have doctors or nurses on staff. They may use misleading language like “Nurse Manager” or “Patient Advocate” to pose as medical professionals. Real clinics are run by Board Certified and licensed physicians. A real abortion care clinic will be accredited by the National Abortion Federation (NAF).
  • Do they offer free parenting supplies or “post-abortion counseling?” Many fake clinics will lure vulnerable people through their doors by promising supplies like money, food, and diapers if the person carriers their pregnancy to term. They may also offer “post-abortion support groups,” peddling the myth that many people regret their abortions.
  •  What medical services do they provide? Because many fake clinics don’t actually have licensed medical staff, they do not offer the full range of reproductive healthcare options. They will not be able to write prescriptions for things like birth control, they will not be able to provide STI testing, they promote abstinence only, and they certainly won’t provide an abortion.
  • Do they push you to make an appointment? A real medical provider will never pressure you into making an appointment. Fake clinics will often refuse to answer your questions over the phone or disclose any information unless you make an appointment. They may sidestep your questions by saying things like “we can talk about that when you come in,” or “let’s make an appointment first, and then we’ll review your options.” If you feel like they are being dodgy about sharing information over the phone or if you feel like you’re being pressured to come in for an appointment, you’re probably talking to a fake clinic.
  •  Always look at their website. Sometimes, fake clinics have two websites: one for potential “patients,” and one for their anti-abortion advocacy. They may say on their website that they don’t provide abortions, or they may say outright their anti-abortion beliefs. If you can’t tell from their website, give them a call. Ask them outright if they provide abortions or if they are a licensed medical facility.

What common inaccurate information do fake clinics spread?

The goal of a fake clinic is to persuade a person against accessing an abortion. Investigative research shows that there are a number of common lies told by fake clinics intended to shame and scare people away from all of their options. Some of the most common are:

  • Abortion and contraception are linked to breast cancer (there is no legitimate medical evidence to support this connection).
  • Abortion causes infertility (there is not medical evidence to support this claim).
  • Abortion causes mental health issues like PTSD, and many women are traumatized and regret their abortions (studies show that the majority of women do not regret their abortions).
  • Birth control is not effective against protecting against an unintended pregnancy (not true).
  • Condoms are not effective against protecting users from STIs (condoms are 99% effective).
How to stay healthy at this time?

We wish you and your loved ones well and hope you stay safe and healthy during this challenging time. We urge you to follow the CDC’s recommendations:

Wash hands frequently and for 20 seconds minimum.

  • Cough or sneeze into a tissue.
  • Practice social distancing when possible and be at least 6 feet away from every person.
  • Stay at home if you are feeling unwell.
  • Avoid touching your face.
  • Disinfect frequently touched surfaces (such as countertops, phones, and laptops) daily.
