Golly! Who could have possibly foreseen this?

Crisis Pregnancy Centers do honorable work against the culture of death, so it is not surprising that the apostles of death hate them and want to destroy them. For a long time, it’s been hard for the Death Eaters to get traction against them. But now, as the prolife movement foolishly embraces Lying for Jesus, we hand the enemies of life a useful tool for slandering CPCs. Turns out Lying for Jesus, like all Faustian Bargains, gives you *nothing* in return for your sin of lying. A reader writes:

The following video outlines the plan to make life difficult for pro-life pregnancy centers.

There are a few things I’d like to bring up.

* Although they don’t specifically mention ultrasound machines in the video, it seems they wish to target them by saying CPCs are pretending to be medical facilities (my guess). I don’t know the specifics, but the NYC law is preventing CPCs from giving away free ultrasounds.

* They are binding the speech of the CPCs as commercial entities, when they’re all volunteer non-profit organizations. I’m not a lawyer, but that seems fishy to me.

* The CPCs are targets of a Lila Rose type stings.

* They are attacking the CPCs for lying and harassment. I don’t believe the first, but I do know that CPCs routinely follow up on clients who visit. If someone asked for the follow ups to stop, then it seems to me that this would be honored.

The entire ridiculous notion that, without lying sting operations, there is absolutely no hope for the prolife movement was and remains an insult to the honorable work that has been done for decades by CPCs. Aiming to take moral shortcuts, the main result has been that after a nine day wonder of excitement for people who just wanted to zing Murder Inc. we’ve now given credibility to the creeps who want to unjustly destroy the CPCs by libeling them as havens for liars.
