Re: “Democratic Socialists launch local #GramTheVan campaign to combat anti-abortion efforts

How depressing journalism is these days. No attempt here to even try to sound unbiased.

The writer has clearly never entered a pregnancy help center and didnt bother to learn anything about them. But is clearly happy to use generalizations like many people believe... yada yada. A truer statement might have been many people who share my view believe...
Id love to see them try to explain what is fake about pregnancy help centers. The medical staff? No. The testing and ultrasounds? No. The information given? No. Its all scientifically and medically accurate. But you wouldnt know that if youve never been.

The women I know who have been inside a center are grateful for the free services. Unlike Planned Parenthood, no one is making money on them. They truly care about their patients.

The author might have thought to include information about the centers that could be helpful to readers. Many of these centers offer free parenting/ childbirth classes on top of their regular services ALONG with practical help (check out the Free Store next to Choices in the Northside!)

These centers care about women. In every stage of life. They care that they are medically safe (free std testing,) they care that they are not coerced or forced into any decision (a sad reality nowadays in regards to terminating pregnancies,) they care that they receive the practical and emotional support later on if they want or need it.
Planned Parenthood cares about their bottom line.
