The Answer Isn’t Planned Parenthood – The Answer is You!

We’re on the precipice of a new chapter in American history – one that hopefully does not include the largest anti-woman and anti-family organization in the country. And with the final bow from Planned Parenthood, who will be the next voice that rises to frame the nation’s views on women, pregnancy, children, and family? Regardless of…

Agnes’ Story

The following story comes from Gift of Hope Pregnancy Center in Englewood, NJ. My name is Agnes. Last Saturday, I woke up with morning sickness a reminder for my appointment for an abortion at the Metropolitan Women’s Clinic in Englewood, NJ. My husband and I married young and he has been abusive towards me throughout…

Why Coercing a Woman Into Abortion Isn’t Pro-Choice

This week, Lila Rose, President and Founder of Live Action, released a video conversation with former Planned Parenthood employees. This conversation covers abortion quotas, incentives, and the despair that is peddled to their patients. I find it interesting that our detractors choose to paint the life-movement as barrier creators. They claim our motives are deceptive…

A Christian Response to Defunding Planned Parenthood

Dear Christian, Several years ago while watching an eye-opening documentary on human trafficking, my heart was gripped, and I felt compelled to do something. But as I sat there considering the scope of the crisis, millions in slavery, I gave up before I even began. Maybe you can relate. This post however, seeks to help…

Eliza’s Story

The following story comes from the Pregnancy Care Center of Rincon in Savannah, GA. My name is Eliza. I am twenty-six years old and a single mother of two. I have a three year old and a seven month old and I don’t know what I would do without them. While motherhood is challenging, those…

Filling Planned Parenthood’s Shoes – 3 Ways Pregnancy Centers Should Respond

For those that are pro-women, pro-family, and pro-community, Planned Parenthood has and will continue to be a place of controversy. But for those who are pro-abortion-access, for them, pregnancy resource centers (PRCs) remain a place of dispute. Over the years PRCs have become a point of controversy as pro-life advocates have pointed to them as…

Maybe the Pro-Life Definition is Fine Just As It Is

We read the same articles all the time. They critique the pro-life movement for not actually being pro-life, and they’re generally all written along these lines: “You can’t be pro-life if you support capital punishment.”   “You aren’t pro-life if you don’t support universal healthcare.” “You can’t be pro-life and also support gun ownership.” “You…

Denise’s Story

The following story comes from Gulf Coast Storks in Southwest Florida. When I found out I was pregnant, I felt an immediate connection with my baby. Because I was raised without a mother, I always wanted to be there for a child in the ways that my mother was never there for me. However, my…

An Equal and Opposite Reaction

For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. – Newton, 1687 When Congress passed the Eighteenth Amendment, known as the Wartime Prohibition Act, on January 16, 1919, they had no idea how the American people would react. Going into effect on July 1st of that year, the well-meaning desire to see alcoholism and…

Jessica’s Story

The following story comes from Elizabeth’s New Life Center in Dayton, OH.  We pulled up to the small white house to see a young woman sitting on the front porch with her head bent down, her hands pressed against her forehead. This was Jessica. She was several months pregnant and suffered from extreme anxiety, which…

Why I March

I march for moms… For the mom who is facing a tough decision. For the mom who is in a dire economic state. For the mom who sees abortion as her only option. For the mom struggling with addiction. For the mom with multiple children and one on the way. For the mom who has…

Do We Have Enough Lifeboats?

When the Titanic sank on April 15, 1912, it wasn’t the sinking of the ship that ultimately killed 1,500 people; it was the lack of preparation. With a passenger list of 2,224 souls, the Titanic was equipped with only enough lifeboats to carry 1,178 people. What had caused engineers, builders, and even the captain to…

Pregnant and Homeless? Help Exists.

Choices. Resources. Options. A woman who is without a home and finds herself pregnant will, in many instances, feel as though she doesn’t have any of these. At least, from what we are too often told, she doesn’t have any of these besides the option of abortion. And even then, it doesn’t seem like much…

Not Getting an Abortion Apparently “Causes Anxiety.”

“Is abortion bad for women?” This question has been answered time and time again by numerous scientific studies, which prove that, yes, abortion is bad for a woman’s health – physically and mentally. This is why abortion clinics are often required to inform women of the adverse effects of the procedure. Think of that one…

It’s Your Last Chance to Make 2016 Count

This season of year-end giving is coming to a close, and we want to say thank you. Not only is year-end giving incredible since it aligns with the season of generosity and togetherness, it also allows donors to offset their taxes by supporting non-profits they believe in. We are so thankful for those of you…

Why We March

In September of 2015, the hashtag #ShoutYourAbortion began popping up all over social media, creating a digital community of women who were “shouting” their abortion experiences in the form of tweets, videos, Facebook posts, etc. This is the “new movement” on the pro-choice side–it’s personal and it’s effective and it’s changing the landscape surrounding the…

Why Does Giving Matter?

What are the most valuable things in your life? For me, in monetary terms, it’d be my car, guitar, and computer. Giving up any of those would be pretty major for me, but far greater than the value of any material resources is the value of the people I love. Sometimes you don’t know what…
