In light of the recent Supreme Court ruling on crisis pregnancy centers, we wanted to re-share this episode. Federal TANF dollars (also known as federal welfare dollars) goes to funding some crisis pregnancy centers, thanks to the way the 1996 Welfare Reform bill was written.

Our episode from season one includes a rare look inside one of the crisis pregnancy centers that gets welfare/TANF funding and it’s well-worth another listen.
