The 2019 state budget has allocated over $2.6 million to crisis pregnancy centers (CPCs) and anti-abortion organizations. CPCs interfere with women seeking abortion care and give false information. They pose as legitimate clinics while they don’t generally have medical personnel. They overtly push Christianity, so them being given money by the state violates the separation of church and state.
