Pro-choice or Pro-coercion?

Both MARAL and Planned Parenthood Affiliates of Michigan the have decided to come out against the Coercive Abortion Prevention Act (CAPA).

In usual fashion, Planned Parenthood of Michigan calls an effort to stop women from being coerced into abortion, "another attempt by anti-choice lawmakers to shame women and create more barriers to access to abortion, while neglecting to offer real solutions to domestic abuse."

It's crazy how screening women to make sure they aren't coerced, punishing those who coerce and allowing a woman to sue someone who coerces her into an abortion is "another attempt...to shame women" in the minds of abortion advocates.
