Pro-Choice and Pro-Voice

Dec 26 '11
Facilities that provide checkups, physical and gynecological exams, cancer screening, birth control, abortions, and general health care services such as cholesterol and diabetes screening and various vaccines and treatments are generally known as clinics. You know, without the scare quotes.
Planned Parenthood also provides education on sex, sexuality, domestic violence, and sexual abuse to teens, parents, students, and clients. They push for more accessible education and care to minorities, education for adults with developmental disabilities, collect donations for domestic violence shelters, and host workshops for parents and children to talk about sex and puberty and to improve communication.
They provide educational services to over five million people per year, and provide health care services to three million.
In contrast…
Crisis pregnancy centers intentionally advertise themselves to confuse people looking for answers and clinics. They lie about fetal development, about abortion procedures, about the risks of abortion (more here), about where to get an abortion, and about the services they provide. They harass, stalk, and expose their victims, try to convert them, try to convince them to stay with their abusive husbands, and practice coercive adoption.
George W. Bush and allies funneled millions to dollars in grants to these centers - over $30 million, in fact (PDF).
Given the choice between funding one or the other, I’d say the pick is pretty obvious. Wouldn’t you?
