HB 2206 would require that pregnancy-related information provided to a woman by a crisis pregnancy center (CPC) be scientifically accurate and evidence-based.

It would also require CPCs that receive state money to provide comprehensive reproductive health-care counseling and information, including information on planning, birth control, pregnancy, and postpartum health.

The bill would also require CPCs to post a notice in English and Spanish stating “this center is not a licensed medical facility.”

Violations of the provision are subject to criminal and civil penalties.

This bill would curb the deceptive practices of crisis pregnancy centers (CPCs) and require them to be honest about the types of services and counseling that they provide. It would ensure that women who visit CPCs are receiving comprehensive counseling.
