Pro-abortion campaign fizzling over own fakeness

crisis pregnancy centerA left-wing campaign to embarrass and shut down pro-life pregnancy centers is fizzling into nothing.

The snarky campaign "Expose Fake Clinics," which began over the summer, has flooded pro-life clinics with rude phone calls and posted negative reviews on social meda. 

The pro-abortion campaign also included protests outside the pro-life clinics, where Jay Hobbs with Heartbeat International witnessed a father confront the protesters with his son standing beside him.

"He wasn't taking any of the nonsense from protesters," Hobbs says of the father. "He just said, Hey, listen, my son standing right here is here because of the pregnancy center. He would have been lost because of abortion but for this pregnancy center."

The pro-life pregnancy clinics operate as an alternative for women who often run to an abortion clinic when they learn of an unplanned pregnancy. Instead of convincing women to obtain an abortion, the pro-life counselors offer free ultrasounds, counsel the client about adoption services, and give away items such as formula and diapers for the newborn child. 

Abortion activists have also posted negative reviews of the centers on social media – but that has failed after the centers reported the inappropriate fake reviews to Google and Facebook.

Almost 100 have been removed so far, Hobbs tells OneNewsNow.

Hobbs, who was meeting with a clinic client during the protest, says that nearly all clients report a positive experience with the pro-life counselors.

When the abortion activists tried to jam phone lines, pro-life counselors used the opportunity to describe the value of a child's life.

OneNewsNow reported in an October story that pro-abortion activists were planning a "hackathon" to flood pro-life clincis with phone calls and to post fake reviews online.
