There’s Room at the Inn
Many pregnant college-aged womenalready struggling to get through collegeare easily persuaded that they must abort their babies in order to get their degree and begin a career. Smelling blood in the water, recruiters like Planned Parenthood aggressively target college campuses across the nation, ready to capitalize on the fear and hopelessness these single women face. Their goal: to convert them into an asset that keeps the abortion industry flush with money.
Fortunately for these women, there are those who offer the resources needed to make a decision that they and their babies can live with. Just this week, a collection of pro-life leaders gathered at Belmont Abbey College in North Carolina for the groundbreaking ceremony of whats being called the first college-based maternity and after-care residential facility on a university campus.
Room At The Inn has been a safe haven and source of hope for pregnant mothers and their children since 1994. Now it will offer a facility on the campus of Belmont Abbey College that will be fully equipped to house 15 mothers and infants and 8 toddlers for up to two years. Each mother will have their own private bedroom and bath, as well as access to shared dining and laundry rooms. Administrative and counseling services will be readily available to these mothers to aid them in practical ways with the tangible skills and resources necessary to effectively care for their newborns.
Thanks to the generous donations of countless private individuals and organizations since 2008, $2.2 million of the $3 million cost has been raised (with donations still coming in to help meet their goal). Even the four acres of land on which the facility will sit has been donated by the Benedictine Monks of Belmont Abbey. Room At The Inn highlights a side of the pro-life movement not readily portrayed by the controversy-driven mainstream media. Contrary to their reporting, we deeply care about the mothers during and after the births of their babies.
This is just another example of pro-lifers banding together as an army of help and hope to make a difference in the lives of many women and future generations.
