Re: “CL goes undercover in a Charlotte 'crisis pregnancy center'

I took my 14 yr old daughter here to discuss ALL of her options as a pregnant young lady in a crisis. I felt that she needed to know all of the options that were available to her. What happened in this facility was like something out of a movie. We went there to get an ultrasound to confirm just how far along she was, so that we would be able to navigate what her choices would be. She had an appointment and was taken behind a locked door... mind you she is a MINOR, where I was left out in the waiting room. Upon being taken to the back of the office, I noticed a cross hanging from the door handle on the inside of the door. I thought that was odd, then started to put things together... like how nice the furniture was in the facility, the lack of state licenses on the wall, no literature available, AND the fact that after 20 mins and ringing the service bell several times to inquire about my daughter. I was finally led into a room where two women had been talking with my daughter, without me present. One was the " bouncer"... she actually leaned back against the door as if to prevent anyone from leaving the room. The other woman spoke to my daughter and explained that there were consequences to every decision she made. "There are consequences to saving a life and taking a life". She also stated that her pregnancy test came out negative, and that she should come back in two weeks to retake a test. Mind you, she had already had a blood test from a physician that confirmed the pregnancy. And by all calculations that would have put her past the time frame to get a legal abortion, IF she wanted to make that choice. We went there to get an ultrasound so that she would be able to make an informed choice on what she would be able to do. I feel like their agenda was being forced on a young woman who was already traumatized by her circumstances... and to me that was a very scary situation to be in.... creating further trauma to an already traumatic situation. Needless to say... we abruptly left.
If you find yourself facing a decision like this, I believe it is best to explore ALL options that are available to you. It is not right to force your will, and your beliefs on someone who is already under a lot of stress and uncertainty, for your agenda!
I don't condone the irresponsibility my daughter showed. But here we are faced with the consequence. My daughter is mentally ill, and we are fighting her illness everyday. It has been such a struggle. Her illness causes her to do things that aren't always good choices. So please take that into consideration before making a nasty comment. We struggle on a daily basis with the most basic tasks.... we are doing our best.
I just wanted to alert anyone who may be considering going there, what they will be up against.
