Alia DeLong holds a Fake Clinic sign along with others from NWL’s Abortion & Birth Control Committee as National Women’s Liberation protested at the Sira Crisis Pregnancy Center (CPC) on NW 13th Street. The protest, on August 7, aimed to warn the community about the misinformation these “clinics” provide.
CPCs like Sira are not health clinics. They use misleading tactics, such as free pregnancy tests and ultrasounds, to bring women into their facilities with the intent of steering them away from choosing abortion, using birth control, and if they are unmarried – having sex.
CPCs in Florida receive funding from taxpayer dollars as well as proceeds from the “Choose Life” license plate. Photo courtesy of Michele Applegarth.
