Anti-Abortion Center Caught Giving False Information About Morning After Pill (VIDEO)

deadstate woman kind video

In an exclusive story from Salon.com today, undercover video taken by a pro-choice activist at an Ohio anti-abortion clinic shows a counselor giving false information in regards to emergency contraception.

In the video, 24 year-old Katie Stack tells a counselor at Cleveland’s Womankind “maternal and prenatal care” center that she didn’t use condoms with her boyfriend the day before, and then inquires about a “pill you can take to not get pregnant.”

After some initial confusion, the counselor inaccurately replies, “It sounds like the morning after pill. If you have intercourse and take this pill and it causes a period to come on or something, or bleeding — it’s like having kind of an abortion.”

“That could harm you. It could really harm you,” the counselor adds. “You could hemorrhage from anything like that.”

There is no evidence from any study to demonstrate that emergency contraception causes any of these extreme side effects.

Stack is a pro-choice activist and patients’ advocate at an Ohio abortion clinic and is also the founder of the Crisis Project, which films undercover video anti-abortion pregnancy centers, often capturing the medically-suspect advice that they disseminate.

Irin Carmon of Salon.com writes:

Whether the counselor was misinformed or intentionally misleading, her advice on emergency contraception was false. The so-called morning after pill, or emergency contraception, has been shown only to block ovulation to prevent fertilization after unprotected sex; it’s decidedly not an abortion.

    That’s infuriating. She’s using her position, a position she’s getting paid for, to lie to vulnerable people. She’s guilt-tripping, she’d judging, and she’s giving out incorrect information. She should be fired for gross conduct.

    She’s undoubtedly anti-choice, looking at where she works, but she has to know about Plan B

    I am hoping they’re made up, but it feels odd listening to the cell phone number and SSN….

    I really want that woman to see this video and know how stupid she sounds. Women like this… they are shaming females out of searching for safe and honest sexual health options. Who the fuck is she to ask about ANYTHING beyond “when did you last have unprotected sex?”? Ugh. Someone slap this old right wing catholic holier-than-thou-sunday-school-over-public-health wannabe counselor into the 21st century. She has NO business doing what she is doing.

    She’s doing exactly what she’s being paid to do… spread misinformation about birth control options, lying about Plan B, and doing her best to make sure the girls/women she talks to do get an opportunity to have an abortion, under any circumstances.

    Why do these people need all this personal information just to “advise” this young woman? Watch out for the mountains of propaganda in your mailbox and for God’s sake change that phone number even if it’s not your real one.

    Once again, these radical “lifers” simply LIE, Exaggerate, and make stuff up. It should be illegal for this behavior because it can not only affect the quality of life and the future of a woman but may also be dangerous to her health.

    As most “lifers” tend to be Republican, … VOTE OUT ALL REPUBLICANS IN 2014!
