HCR 63 officially honors pregnancy resource centers also known as crisis pregnancy centers (CPCs) throughout Louisiana and declares Thursday, May 11, 2017 as Pro-Life Day at the Louisiana State Capitol.

The resolution commends the work of CPCs; acknowledges the so-called contributions they make to women’s reproductive health; and encourages state funding through the “Choose Life” license plates.

CPCs have come under increased scrutiny over the last several years, as investigations have revealed that centers across the country have provided inaccurate information and neglected to follow proper medical protocols. (Source.)
