- It became abundantly clear that comedians are just as qualified to give advice to pregnant women as the "counselors" at CPCs.
- Comedians took to Twitter to mock the ridiculousness of these anti-choice groups that will do or say anything to block women from exercising their right to choose. This advice isn't half as bad as what so-called "counselors" at CPCs tell pregnant women.
- They pointed out how CPCs pretend to be real medical professionals.

- They made fun of the way CPCs downplay the challenges of parenting to push women toward one and only one path.
Comedians' fake #CPCAdvice is almost as bad as the real thing
