Crisis Pregnancy Centers
Refers women to CPCs
Virginia law refers women to crisis pregnancy centers (CPCs). In connection with the state's biased-counseling and mandatory-delay law, when a woman tells a health-care provider she is considering abortion, the provider must give her a state-maintained list of facilities that will satisfy the law's mandate. CPCs are included on the list without disclaimer of their biased nature and are not distinguished from legitimate health centers. Va. Code Ann. § 18.2-76 (Enacted, 2003; Last Amended, 2012).
