Black Women for Wellness Reproductive Justice 2017 Highlights
Help Women's Reproductive Rights: Defend CPC Disclosure Laws
A current Supreme Court case about 'Crisis Pregnancy Centers' ('CPCs') could make it much harder for low-income pregnant women to learn about their options. CPCs present themselves as full-service women's health clinics, but are actually deceptive fronts for anti-choice organizations that mislead, frighten, and pressure women at an especially vulnerable time.
Your contribution will help Black Women for Wellness and the Public Good Law Center--which has specialized expertise in the First Amendment issues that will decide the case--raise public awareness and prepare an important friend-of-the-court legal brief.
Please do what you can to support our fight to keep all reproductive options accessible for all women, regardless of finances and education.
