This state just launched a massive taxpayer-funded pro-abortion campaign filled with blatant misinformation

The pro-abortion Left thinks Americans should embrace their radical agenda.

And they will stop at nothing to spread lies in hopes of converting people to their side – even going so far as to use taxpayer money.

Now this state has launched a massive taxpayer-funded pro-abortion campaign filled with blatant misinformation.

Massachusetts’ Democratic leadership has unveiled a groundbreaking public education campaign. 

But its purpose is less than educational. 

Pro-life clinics were appalled at what the Left said about them (and how much they spent on it!). 

The program is aimed at warning women about the so-called “dangers and potential harm” of pro-life pregnancy clinics. 

This initiative, which began rolling out on June 10, includes advertisements on social media, radio, billboards, and transit, cautioning women to “avoid anti-abortion centers,” as announced by the Executive Office of Health and Human Services.

These ads, directing viewers to a Mass.gov webpage, promote how to “search for a trusted abortion provider.” 

Lieutenant Governor Kim Driscoll emphasized the campaign’s intent in a June 10 statement: “The troubling practices of anti-abortion centers serve to undermine the trust that people should have in our health care system. Education and accurate information can help counter the misinformation and unethical tactics these centers use to prey on people at a particularly vulnerable time.”

This pro-abortion campaign is a collaboration between the Department of Public Health and the Reproductive Equity Now Foundation, a pro-choice advocacy group. 

It is funded by a $1 million investment passed by the Massachusetts legislature as part of its FY2023 supplemental budget.

The state claims that pregnancy resource centers (PRCs), which outnumber abortion clinics by more than two-to-one, pose a significant threat to women. 

These clinics typically offer free testing, baby items, counseling, and support for women with unplanned pregnancies. 

Proponents argue that PRCs provide essential education and resources, allowing women to explore alternatives to abortion and make informed decisions about their pregnancies.

However, Massachusetts Department of Health Commissioner Dr. Robbie Goldstein has harshly criticized these clinics. 

“Every day, individuals in the Commonwealth walk into anti-abortion centers unaware that these facilities are masquerading as comprehensive medical providers and pose a significant risk to the health and well-being of those seeking help, support, and options,” he said. 

“As a physician, I find this kind of deception and misrepresentation unconscionable, and as Commissioner, I feel compelled to push back as hard as possible against these shameful practices and blatant misinformation.”

Interesting that “as a physician,” the commissioner doesn’t take issue with the murder of babies. 

The Massachusetts government has explicitly labeled pro-life pregnancy clinics as a “danger” to women. 

In response, these clinics have accused the state of launching a politically motivated effort to silence them because they do not provide abortions or referrals.

A controversial bill currently before the Massachusetts legislature aims to regulate the advertising of pro-life pregnancy centers. 

If passed, the bill would allow for fines of up to $1,000 for clinics found to have made “deceptive” statements about pregnancy-related services. 

The attorney general would be responsible for determining whether a deceptive statement had been made.

The conservative nonprofit Massachusetts Family Institute (MFI) has fiercely opposed this bill, claiming it engages in blatant viewpoint discrimination. 

“This bill targets the speech of pro-life PRCs while allowing free rein to abortion clinics,” reads a memo from MFI.

The ongoing battle over PRCs in Massachusetts is not new. 

In 2022, then-Attorney General Maura Healey, now Governor, issued a “consumer warning” against pregnancy resource centers after receiving just three consumer complaints, according to information obtained by a pro-life group through a public records request.

This campaign represents a significant escalation in the ongoing debate over abortion and pregnancy support services in Massachusetts. 

Pro-life advocates argue that the state’s actions are part of a broader attempt to marginalize and silence their efforts to provide alternatives to abortion. 

They maintain that PRCs offer crucial support and resources for women facing unplanned pregnancies, empowering them to make informed choices that respect the sanctity of life.

As this issue continues to unfold, it remains to be seen how the legislative and public responses will shape the future of pregnancy resource centers in Massachusetts. 

What is clear, however, is that this campaign has intensified the already heated debate over abortion and the role of PRCs in providing compassionate care and support for women in need.
