29. If women go to a crisis pregnancy center for a test, the staff can (and will) report the pregnancy

to whichever state health service is put in charge of preventing abortions. Crisis pregnancy centers are not medical facilities—they are extremist Christian organizations whose sole purpose is preventing a woman from having an abortion. The only tests they can are the pregnancy test and an ultrasound to determine how far along the pregnancy is. Since they are not a medical facility, they are not bound by HIPAA requirements for privacy.

Crisis pregnancy centers share the name, address, and contact information (along with pregnancy information) with antiabortion groups and even state legislators. They are known for calling young women to harass them to demand whether they have had an abortion.

Bit even those women who do a home pregnancy test will likely consult with a doctor or a women’s healthcare clinic soon thereafter. For those who do not want the pregnancy, they will want to know how far along they are to find out whether they can have a medication abortion.

I’m not saying that states currently have the ability to track pregnancy tests or to track pregnant women, but these are religious zealots in red states determined to force women to have babies. They cannot enforce some of the laws they’re trying to pass unless they set up snitches like the crisis pregnancy center staff or encourage vigilantes as Texas has done to report anyone suspected of having an abortion, along with anyone who helped the woman.
