What are Crisis Pregnancy Centers?

Crisis pregnancy centers, or CPCs, pose as women’s health centers but in reality are anti-abortion counseling centers. Calling them what they really are, fake health centers use deceptive advertising practices to lure in people facing unplanned pregnancies and, though they are funded by the state government, are unregulated by the state of Minnesota. Fake health centers are often run by people without a medical license or training, and give out biased counseling and false medical information under the appearance of being a real healthcare provider.
