A frequent claim by pro-abortion activists is that the pro-life movement doesn’t care about women.

The courageous work of pro-life pregnancy help centers on behalf of babies, moms and dads, however, tells an entirely different story.

Take a look at the documented life-affirming services these centers provide.

Fact Sheet Pregnancy Centers Serving Women and Saving Lives (2020 Study)

Pro-life pregnancy centers (formerly known as crisis pregnancy centers and also as pregnancy care or resource centers) are faith-based, community-based, not-for-profit organizations which first began to appear in the U.S. in the late 1960s, as abortion was becoming legal, to provide care and resources to assist women with immediate and ongoing needs related to unexpected pregnancy.

  1. I believe the prolife centers should emphasize the fact that they support “women’s rights”. The pro abortion community imply that they support women’s rights and prolife community does not. A woman has the right to have children in addition to the right to have a career. Prolife centers help women through pregnancy and caring for babies but the woman has the right to work outside the home if she chooses.

  2. Dear Brad.. I just have to share with you about the Pregnancy Counseling Center WELS Lutherans for Life I was involved with for 25 years This April they are celebrating their 40th anniversary. Del and I and 3 other couples were the ones that started it. Once a radio person caled and interviewed me on my day at the center. I told him we are ” Saving Lives for here and eternity”
    I saw and heard what abortion does to men and women. To this day I speak up to others telling them what God’s Word says about abortion and how Lowell and I continue to thank our Lord or you speaking out for those that have no voice. So, Onward Christian Soldier, you are a blessing for all who are helping others along life’s way having precious lives saved and speaking out about abortion. Our love , Ann & Lowell Tolly
