Today and tomorrow, two legislative committees will hold votes on controversial bills (SB 1251/HB 2404) that could hand over $3 million to religious “pregnancy centers.”
These fake pregnancy centers have a religious mission to prevent abortion and use deceptive marketing practices to target and lure pregnant women to facilities posing as real medical centers.
Arizona women need real health and pregnancy care, not lies and deceit. Especially during this pandemic, it is shameful that lawmakers are planning to give religious groups $3 million to undermine access to health care.
The government should protect women from these religious “pregnancy centers”—not give them taxpayer dollars so that they can more easily manipulate women.
Not a single tax dollar should support religious organizations that trick, harass, bully, and shame vulnerable women into foregoing health care services.
