PRO-LIFE CENTERS FACE N.Y. PROBE
Targets of Conspiracy Against Crisis Pregnancy Ministries

New York Attorney General Elliot Spitzer has subpoenaed several Crisis Pregnancy Centers as part of an investigation to determine whether they have provided "deceptive" medical information to pregnant women. Pro-lifers know this action is the first salvo in a long-planned effort by National Abortion Rights Action League (NARAL) and other pro-abortion groups to deal a deathblow to the hugely successful Crisis Pregnancy Center (CPC) movement nationwide.

Spitzer says the centers "may have violated one or more...statutes by misrepresenting the services they provide, diagnosing pregnancy and advising persons on medical options without being licensed to do so, and/or providing deceptive and inaccurate medical information" (see http://www.cnsnews.com/ViewCulture.asp?Page=\Culture\archive\ 200201\CUL20020109a.html).
CPC's are called "the compassionate side of the pro-life movement" and are despised by pro-aborts. Abortion rates have declined for several years and fewer Americans now approve of abortion - in part due to the caring ministry of CPC's in cities, towns and hamlets across America. Millions of women will never forget the help they received at a CPC.
Few Centers offer medical services, but freely provide women commercially available pregnancy tests. Each woman must administer and interpret her own test according to simple directions provided with the test. If she is pregnant, volunteers do what they can to lighten the load of bringing her baby into the world, whatever her circumstances. Some centers offer post abortion counseling for women who, tragically, choose abortion.
There are more than 100 CPC's in New York State, with 15 Centers in New York City and over 4000 nationwide, most of them Christian ministries.

Because most are supported, governed and operated by Christians, CPC's are exactingly careful to operate within the laws that affect them. Part of the pro-abort strategy is to use spies and plants and to encourage private lawsuits against centers. Such could conceivably cripple the CPC movement; precisely what abortion advocates have in mind. New York is but the first in a multi-pronged attack. California pro-aborts are working hard to lay the groundwork for actions there and elsewhere (see http://www.choice.org/cpc/).

Please Join us in Determined Prayer:

Father, THANK YOU for those who labor day & night to help women in crisis pregnancies to choose life & to learn of You. BLESS & MULTIPLY their work until abortion is ended in America (Dt 30:19; Ps 113:13-15; Mt 5:9-12).
INTERVENE! EXPOSE those who have conspired falsely to accuse those who pour out their lives in service to You. TROUBLE those who trouble Your servants. Magnify the Truth (Pr 11:17-20; Ecc 10:8-9; Mt 5:43-45; Gal 5:10; Eph 5:11-13).
GUIDE, PROTECT & PROVIDE for the Boards, Staff & Volunteers of the CPC's pulled into this ugly investigation. May your people ARISE to stand with our brethren. VINDICATE them & let their enemies be ashamed. In Jesus Name, Amen (Gen 12:3; Neh 4:14; Ps 121:all; Ps 23:5; Is 58:11).
