Crisis Pregnancy Centers Investigated.

Read Kathryn Joyce's fantastic investigative article in The Nation, Shotgun Adoption, on crisis pregnancy centers, the organizations set up by anti-choice groups to steer pregnant women toward adoption and away from abortion.

This movement is more about regulating women's sex lives than saving the "life of an unborn child." Kathryn looks at their government financing, the tactics used by these organizations to lure innocent women in, the history of the adoption movement in the US, the religious ideology behind these organizations, and - where she is best in this piece - examines the disrupted lives of the young women who are taken in.
