Working in the Prolife Field

A week from today will mark the 37th anniversary of the Roe vs. Wade decision.

Pious women everywhere have distinguished themselves serving in the prolife field, speaking for the voiceless unborn and supporting their mothers and fathers.

Across the country pregnancy resource centers (PRCs -often referred to as crisis pregnancy centers) enable this work to be done on a large and effective scale.

Currently PRCs are facing a cruel wave of attack. Recently in my hometown, Baltimore, Maryland, PRCs were labeled "false clinics," sued and subsequently ordered by court to prominently display signs declaring that the centers do not provide abortion or birth control. Without a doubt, this was a national test case. According to friends who were in the court room, the case was a sham, the "evidence" of farcical and there were more NARAL and Planned Parenthood reps than you could imagine.

Despite these attacks, PRCs continue to serve numerous women and guide them to choose life.

As a couselor working for the largest independent PRC in the nation, in the days leading up to the anniversary, I'd like to offer 7 ways you can better help your local PRC and in turn help numerous moms and babies.
