And now, an NBC Bay Area Editorial

Anti-abortion groups have the right to free speech. But if they use deceptive advertising and scare tactics, as many pro-choice groups claim, we need to take action.

Pregnant women need accurate medical advice. Many pro-life centers give them that, but others allegedly frighten girls with films and false information, claiming abortion leads to infertility and breast cancer.

If some anti-abortion groups market themselves as pro-choice providers, so women considering an abortion are misdirected to anti-choice clinics, that's wrong.

We call on Bay Area cities to stop pregnancy centers from advertising services they don't provide, through search engines... in all media.

Austin and Baltimore have passed such laws, so should we! No woman makes this decision lightly. She needs the right information, to make the right choice, for her.

That's what we think, what do you think?
