Europe Must Act Against US-Backed “Crisis Pregnancy Centers” (Project-Syndicate)

When undercover reporters, posing as vulnerable pregnant women, were sent into the centers in 18 countries across Europe, Africa, and Latin America, they consistently received wildly misleading and false information about abortion and contraception. And what openDemocracy’s investigation found is likely just the tip of the iceberg.
