NEW YORK ― The U.S. Supreme Court will decide whether California can force so-called crisis pregnancy centers to give women accurate information about birth control and abortion ― the first abortion-related case the high court has taken on under Donald Trump's administration.

Here's why it matters.

Faith-based crisis pregnancy centers (CPCs), which vastly outnumber abortion clinics in the United States, rely heavily on misleading or outright lying to women about reproductive health care in order to dissuade them from having abortions. They often masquerade as abortion clinics or licensed medical facilities ― sometimes even cloaking their unlicensed staffers in medical garb ― in order to attract pregnant women who are weighing their options. And many of these centers receive state money to do so.
