Â—IVG.net is a website that under the cover of neutral information sharing tries to stop women from having an abortion.
Several "official looking" websites have flourished such as IVG.net, EcouteIVG.org" or "SOSbébé". They all pretend to be neutral call centers for pregnant women. In reality, their aim is to prevent women from having an abortion through biased or false information (on the great danger or severe physical and mental consequences of having an abortion for example). IVG.net is financed by Alliance Vita.
