Last year, San Francisco became the first city in California to go after crisis pregnancy centers, faith-based non-profits that are often purposely vague about the services they offer in hopes of luring in pregnant women who expect to hear non-biased information about all of their options, but instead receive anti-choice rhetoric.
After San Francisco's supervisors introduced a bill that would force centers to make it clear that they don't directly offer or provide referrals to clients for abortions or emergency contraception — that means no more of those creepy "Pregnant? Scared? Alone? We can help!" billboards, for example — First Resort, a crisis pregnancy center listed under OB/GYN services in one of San Francisco's largest medical buildings, sued the city for allegedly violating their civil rights by enforcing the 2011 ordinance.
