Hasn't anyone told them that lying is a sin?

From a Planned Parenthood report / action item.

An Indiana mother takes her daughter and her daughter's boyfriend to one of Indiana's Planned Parenthood clinics (I would assume for an abortion, though the report doesn't explicitly say that; I suppose it might've been STD testing; either way, the fact that both kids talked to an adult, and the fact that the bf has the decency to share in that kind of planning, speaks well of all concerned), but they actually walk into a "crisis pregnancy center" run by an anti-abortion group -- one that shares a parking lot with the real Planned Parenthood clinic, and was designed expressly to lure Planned Parenthood patients and deceive them. (I would assume the PP is in a strip mall -- the one in Mountain View is, too -- so they can't do much about the CPC renting another space in the lot, and don't have rights to post extra signage in the middle of the lot to direct people away from the decoy.)

What happens next borders on the criminal: The CPC, under false pretenses, gets the girl's name and info, then uses that to wage a campaign of terror against her, including siccing the police on her parents, sending operatives to try to turn peers against her at school, etc.

The anti-choice movement is setting up these decoy CPCs across the country. According to the NYT, there are more of these centers in the U.S. than there are actual abortion providers. Worst of all, these centers have received $60 million in government grants. That's our tax dollars at work, as directed by the GOP.
