Why support for crisis pregnancy centers is surging post-Roe

Season 2024 Episode 63 | 5m 38s

Crisis pregnancy centers provide counseling and other prenatal services from an anti-abortion perspective. Supporters say they help ensure that pregnant people know the risks of abortion, but abortion rights advocates say the information that they provide can have no scientific basis. The Guardian reporter Carter Sherman joins Ali Rogin to discuss the debate over federal aid for these facilities.
