Nicole Knight reports:

A young woman visited a crisis pregnancy center thinking she’d get medical care at a clinic that would safeguard her privacy. She didn’t know her personal information would be used against her.

When Morgen Trube was 20, she thought she was pregnant. So Trube, then a sophomore at Hawaii Pacific University, Googled “free pregnancy test in Oahu.” An ad popped up for a facility called A Place for Women in Waipio.

Trube had just moved to Hawaii. She had out-of-state health insurance and no local doctor. She called Planned Parenthood and dozens of doctors. No one could fit her in.

What happened next launched Trube on a painful odyssey that today, three years later, can bring the 23-year-old to tears.
