Volunteering at a pregnancy crisis center

I am supposed to graduate with my ADN in 9 weeks and women’s health is my passion. I currently volunteer as a birth Doula at a local hospital and was previously a breastfeeding peer counselor for WIC. I am in a RN-BSN collaborative so I will have my BSN in December. I know I will be a better candidate for the jobs I want after my BSN so I thought I could volunteer more until I graduate. I was looking into volunteering at a pregnancy crisis center that offers medical services and counseling. My concern is that most of them are faith based and a few even offer “abortion pill reversal”. Will volunteering for a faith based center negatively affect my future job prospects in OB? I know there are a lot of strong opinions on both sides of the abortion debate and I don’t want a hiring manager to assume I have certain views based on where I volunteered.

What on earth is an abortion pill reversal?

I'm going to be honest and say, yeah, if it were you and another equivalent candidate, I might take pause at seeing that on your resume.

I had to Google it because I didn’t know it was a thing. From what I gathered it’s not fda approved nor evidenced based. Some doctors believe that if a women takes progesterone and doesn’t take her second abortion pill it can save the pregnancy. After looking into it more I decided I couldn’t volunteer anywhere that gave those out but even the ones that don’t give it out have links to information on it.
