Feministing Blog Attacks Crisis Pregnancy Centers

I do not think that anyone should accept the claim that those who are pro-choice are not also pro-abortion. We would not see attacks by Liberal feminists against Crisis Pregnancy Centers if these feminists were merely pro-choice. It seems clear that the only choice that is acceptable to feminists is the one the results in the death of the unborn baby. The most recent bit of news enraging the ladies of feministing is that in Virginia they are going to give a paltry $65,000 of month to Crisis Pregnancy Centers in the state, not just one Center. The last paragraph is what really get me:

"Crisis pregnancy centers" have been documented using deceptive and coercive tactics to prevent women facing an unintended pregnancy from making a fully informed choice. (See here , here and here.) States like Virginia should be funding legitimate, comprehensive reproductive health clinics--not CPCs, whose missions have nothing to do with health care and everything to do with an anti-choice political agenda.

As if the pro-abortion lobby does not have a political agenda. And what exactly is a fully informed choice? Not one that pro-abortion absolutists want women to make. If they really wanted women to make fully informed choices then they would not fight a 24 hour waiting period, parental notification or ultra sound information being given. I think the ones who are "anti-choice" are the ones preventing women from getting all the information about their unborn baby boy or girl.
