Vast Majority Of LA ‘Pregnancy Centers’ Not Complying With Abortion Notification Law
The law requiring the centers to notify their clients of access to abortions went into effect at the start of the year, but a KPCC investigation shows that six out of eight pregnancy centers in LA are defying the measure. "I'm Pepsi-Cola, I'm not Coca-Cola," says Lori Berg, the executive director of one of the facilities. "Don't force me to put Coca-Cola posters or even hand out free coupons for Coca-Cola."
6 Of 8 LA Pregnancy Centers Defy Abortion Notice Law
Six out of eight Los Angeles-area "pregnancy centers" visited by KPCC are not complying with a new state law requiring them to notify their clients that the state offers access to low-cost and free abortions. KPCC also found that authorities are not aggressively enforcing the law, which took effect Jan. 1. Some cities are deferring to the state, while others are waiting to receive complaints about pregnancy centers before investigating them. (Plevin, 4/19)
