  •  This topic genuinely infuriates me. (3+ / 0-)

    Not a lot of topics do.  CPCs kinda piss me off, though.

    re: federal funding: AFAIK, CPCs don't do jack all except hand out pamphlets and "counsel."  What on earth is the ostensible purpose of the funding?

    •  Well, that's the point burrow owl - they clearly (4+ / 0-)

      do a lot more besides handing out pamphlets and "counsel" people. They show videos, they perform pregnancy tests, they intimidate, etc.

      Honestly, I think their goal is pretty much to suck funding away from full service clinics. Of course, it's a nice gig for the people who work there as well. They aren't qualified to work in any real clinic, but they're able to get paid to lie and intimidate and manipulate. It must be a dream come true for them.
