HB 41/SB 444 attempts to establish “Pregnancy Support Services” (also referred to as Crisis Pregnancy Centers or CPCs) as legitimate wellness centers and appropriate state funding to support and promote child birth. For years, CPCs have been receiving state funding with zero oversight.
All health care providers should be regulated and while this legislation establishes regulation and guidelines for CPCs such as financial reports, background checks of staff, and non-coercive or religious information, we want to ensure that women receive medically accurate information to access the full range of reproductive health care services.
