Pregnancy centers are the tip of the spear in the pro-life movement. Their contributions to women, their babies, and their communities at large can not be overstated. This week, Brad and Victor discuss new information released from the Charlotte Lozier Institute showing just how impactful these centers truly are. Expert guests Moira Gaul and Janette Chun expand upon this topic while sharing their personal knowledge and experience. Join us as we highlight pregnancy centers value to women on this week’s Straight Talk on Life Issues.
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.
I’ve often said that these centers are where the “rubber meets the road” in changing hearts and saving lives – while typically having precious few minutes to do it.
Take a look at the documented life-affirming services these centers provide.
Hope for a New Generation
Charlotte Lozier Institute analyzed data from 2,750 pregnancy centers collected in a national survey, finding that pregnancy resource centers provide over $350m worth of free services every year. This includes meeting with clients over 16,000,000 times and serving nearly 9750,000 new clients with 97% reporting a positive experience.
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.
