Pence to visit anti-abortion "clinic" in Raleigh

Because pseudo-scientific bullshit is a staple of the Trump administration:

Pence is set to visit Gateway Women's Care, a pregnancy and sexual health center in downtown Raleigh, where he will participate in a roundtable discussion. CNN reports Gateway promotes misleading information regarding abortion on its website, specifically the assertion that abortion can lead to breast cancer.

The website reads, "A number of reliable studies have concluded that there is an association between abortion and later development of breast cancer." However, studies linking abortion to breast cancer were found to have flawed methodology.

Not sure, but I think this is the same bunch who tried to get a rezoning so they could be directly adjacent to Planned Parenthood. Much easier to harass women that way. But however you get in their door, harassment is on the menu, albeit a passive-aggressive form. And if a woman is still iffy after being scientifically misled, there's always God to straighten her out:

People have different understandings of God. Whatever your present beliefs may be, having an abortion may affect more than just your body and your mind – for many, there is a spiritual side to abortion that deserves consideration.

Have you considered what God thinks about your situation?

How does God see your unborn child?

What impact would going against your beliefs have on you?

And of course promoting the idea that it's not just the woman's choice is also on the menu:

Abortion is not just a women’s issue. For men who are staring abortion in the face, it is not a decision to be made lightly or without considering the possible consequences. Gateway Women’s Care has a trained, professional male counselor on staff that is available to help you consider all the options and make a decision that is best for you, both in the short and long term.

That's wrong on so many levels I don't know where to start.

When I get hold of the actual lawsuit I will post links/quotes here.

I would like to see ...

... these so-called "clinics" get sued for false advertising and being forced to disclose their religious nature in any and all of their advertising.
