Watch: Samantha Bee Exposes the Hideous Lie of Fake Abortion Clinics

Recently Samantha Bee introduced her audience to an atrocious anti-woman lawmaker, Senator Renee Unterman of Georgia, who has fought against justice for rape victims. Turns out that is not the only thing Unterman has been doing. She also wrote legislation that allows Georgia to give state money to [Crisis] Pregnancy Resource Centers.

“Woman, have you lost your f*cking mind?” Samantha Bee, host of "Full Frontal," shouted. 

Pregnancy Resource Centers are places that deliberately mislead women about the services that they actually offer.

“Much like Renee Unterman, Crisis Pregnancy Centers may look sweet and helpful, but they’re really full of toxic bullsh*t,” confirmed Bee.

These centers are elaborate con-jobs, as demonstrated by Bee herself with help from the hilarious Patton Oswalt.

“We are casting our gaze toward the ultimate hustle—a conception deception—a masterpiece of gynecological grift,” announced Patton Oswalt.

“A Crisis Pregnancy Center is a fake abortion clinic,” confirmed Vicki Saporta of the National Abortion Federation. "They spread these lies hoping to frighten women and to persuade them not to go ahead with obtaining the abortion that they want," Saporta explained.

The illusion that these facilities are abortion clinics is eerily legal. The facilities even adopt similar names, logos and fonts to actual abortion clinics.

“They try to have women come in to have a free pregnancy test or a free ultrasound, and then their goal is to detain them. ... They con women into thinking that they provide the full range of reproductive health-care services when they absolutely do not ... have licensed medical staff," Saporta added.
