Closing a thread is not censoring a poster..... it IS censoring that thread. Regarding attacks on Crisis Pregnancy Centers.... i spent most of yesterday calling several in my area, both inquiring regarding their services before revealing the intent of my call and informed each one of what may be the seeds of attack springing up. None of them tried to deceive me regarding the questions I asked: Q. Do you offer abortion counseling? Ans: Are you wanting an abortion or have you had an abortion? We offer couseling to women who have had an abortion. Are you pregnant? Q. (I hedge) Ummmm..... Ah...... I was just wondering what kind of help you offer a woman who is pregnant? Ans: You seem hesitant... This is confidential. Are you asking for yourself or another? um... We don't do abortions. But we do offer pregnancy test, screening, and can referr you or the person to a group of specialist who volunteer and can do an ultrasound at no charge to show the development of the baby. And, should you decide to keep the baby, we offer classes and counseling and can help with baby supplies? How can we help you? (The answers weren't identical, but generally the same. Two stated up front that they were a Christian based ministry which offered pregnancy counseling and help for women wanting to have their baby. But that didn't mean a woman had to be a Christian nor had to become one to receive their help.) Then I explained the story of finding this article regarding the Baltimore City Council and my thread start on this board. Each one I called had not heard about this development but agreed that this looks like it could be the start of an attack against the centers which might spread. They were grateful for the information and I was even referred to a doctor's practice to pass him the message as he is active in the Prolife save a child movement.... and likes to keep informed of developments such as this. To the members on this board active or interested in the pro-life cause... make sure your local centers are informed if you're aware of similar developments. FYI, when each call was answered, I stated up front that if they were busy at that moment I would call back or I could give them my number for a call back when they weren't so busy. As it turned out each one took my call.
