Like many crisis pregnancy centers, Alpha Center in Fort Collins, Colorado preys on clients’ fears and indecisions, urging them to delay making a decision. The longer a client puts off making a choice about their pregnancy, the more expensive an abortion becomes, until eventually it’s too late to get one at all - which is exactly what CPCs are hoping for. This is just one of many delay tactics.
Alpha Center also touts the false diagnosis of “post-abortion stress syndrome,” a term created by anti-abortion activists (or “some psychologists,” as they put it). It’s been refuted by both the American Psychological Association and the American Psychiatric Association.
