Sat, 6/25, "Protest Boston Area Crisis Pregnancy Center: Anti-Choice, Right-Wing Misinformation Clinic"

Saturday, June 25 · 12:00pm - 4:00pm

Daybreak Pregnancy Resource Center
101 Tremont St
Boston, Massachusetts

Organized by the Radical Alliance for Gender Equality (RAGE)

Crisis pregnancy centers are usually run by religious organizations with a staunch opposition to both abortion and contraception. Additionally, many are opposed to single women becoming mothers and tend to use their resources to coerce women into signing adoption papers.

Some CPCs have enjoyed federal funding since 2000 to support "abstinence-only" programs in public schools, and anti-abortion lawmakers continue to push for more federal funding of these centers. Many states still have state-subsidized funding for CPCs, in particular from the "Choose Life" license plate project that funnels money from state Departments of Transportation directly into CPCs and their affiliates. While many CPCs boast a total lack of government funding, a closer look reveals many receive funds from foundations that are, in fact, directly funded by government agencies.
