StandingWithYou.org: Legitimate women's health? or RW bogus?

Last edited Mon Jun 26, 2023, 01:23 PM - Edit history (1)

The other day, I found a doorhanger ad on the doormat of my Silver Spring condominium apartment. It says: "Free women's health services in Bethesda. Need assistance? We stand with you. " On the other side, it says: "Bethesda, we stand with you. Pregnant women have options and deserve better. There are Pregnancy Resource Centers in Bethesda, and they are the clear choice for comprehensive pregnancy support. Need assistance? Visit StandingWithYou.org. Trained professionals are ready to help."

Is this group legitimate? Or is it one of those fake assistance groups that prevent abortions no matter what?

The above link goes to their website blog page, where it becomes obvious that these are anti-abortion people.

I just thought I should check with Democratic Underground folks. My daughter is a lawyer. I will alert her to this organization.
