After all, they claim to care about women in need and that they want to reduce abortions. These centers, also known as pregnancy resource centers, reduce abortions by showing women — who ironically enough thought they had no choice but abortion — that there is a better way and that help is available. But not only do they have no centers themselves, they actively support Planned Parenthood and the rest of the abortion industry in fighting them. Meanwhile, the number of centers funded and staffed by authentic Christians vastly outnumbers the number of for-profit abortion clinics.
First, I have to admit that I know why the “Christian” Left doesn’t volunteer at existing centers. As a long-time volunteer, supporter and former board member of a Care Net Center, I know that we don’t allow pro-abortion people and non-Christians to be volunteers. So the “Christian” Left would fail on both counts.
But if they were honest in wanting to help people and reduce abortions they would open their own clinics. They would help the women in need with their time and money instead of forcing their neighbors to do so. They would reduce abortions — especially of the minorities they claim to care about. They would offer ultrasounds like we do with the knowledge that most women who view them choose not to have their children killed.
But they do none of that. Why? Because they are pro-abortion. They use all sorts of tortured reasoning to insist that Jesus is pro-abortion. It is demonic.
False teachers such as Rachel Held Evans put forth ridiculous false dichotomies about how shoveling more of her neighbors’ money into counterproductive social programs would “really” reduce abortions. That’s false, of course, but if they really opposed abortion then why not do that and make them illegal.
And consider the ridiculous end result of her position: It would justify infanticide or even killing children of any age. After all, if giving the mothers more money would reduce the murders then we should do that instead of keeping the murders illegal. Because they’ll do it anyway, right?
More than that, Democrats are officially pro-abortion, not pro-choice. Why? Because they want taxpayer-funded abortions, laws requiring all health care plans to cover abortions, and no restrictions on anything, including “partial-birth abortion” (aka infanticide), late term abortions, gender-selection abortions, parental notification, etc.
Pregnancy center counselors will also politely tell the truth to these women: They should stop having sexing outside of marriage! But the “Christian” Left would never consider such a thing.
And of course, the Left pretends to care about sexual harassment (while their politicians, media, education and entertainment figures commit and/or cover up those crimes constantly) while ignoring how Planned Parenthood protects rapists and sex traffickers as part of their business model — audio and video.
And the Left paints everyone who disagrees with them as racist, but abortions kill blacks at a rate three times that of whites, and Hispanics at twice the rate. And taxpayer-funded abortions will increase those ratios. Seems kinda racist to me . . .
These centers also share the real Gospel with anyone willing to hear it (though it isn’t required to get all the free support and encouragement), so you wouldn’t expect the “Christian” Left to be on board with that.
From their platform: “The Democratic Party strongly and unequivocally supports Roe v. Wade and a woman’s right to make decisions regarding her pregnancy, including a safe and legal abortion, regardless of ability to pay. We oppose any and all efforts to weaken or undermine that right.”
That’s pro-abortion, not pro-choice. And that’s why they will never open their own centers. They don’t want abortions to be rare, they want more of them. Leftists even admit that they would shut down their free speech if they could. So they not only don’t support crisis pregnancy centers, they fight them.
SJWs always lie, and the abortion topic is no exception.

Short answer to the title question — Because they are not Christians.
