Pregnancy, Birthing & Reproductive Justice

Local Clinics & Providers

The following are links to trained medical service providers. These organizations are commited to providing women accurate and complete information.

Be aware of "fake clinics", otherwise known as Crisis Pregnancy Centers (CPCs). They pose as legitimate health centers and offer free pregnancy tests. Some fake clinics coerce and intimidate women out of considering abortion as an option, and prevent women from receiving neutral and comprehensive medical advice. They are typically run by volunteers who are not licensed medical professionals. If you would like more information about CPCs in the area please call the Women's Center at 760-750-4988.
