What is a blatant lie? Is omission of facts in a statement implying an untruth a lie?

Pregnancy centers do not offer an abortion option—only what to do with the birth of the child. They provide a “wonderful support system” only if the women want to give birth. They moralize on “life.”

An honest treatment for a pregnant woman is to offer all choices available, including giving birth, to obtaining an abortion without moralizing.

Perhaps a better name for these centers would be Anti-Choice Centers.
