In the 21st century, women of childbearing age have never known a time when abortion was not legal. If a pregnancy comes at the wrong time or under bad conditions, any woman, regardless of her marital status or her basic moral code, could be vulnerable to choosing abortion for an unintended pregnancy.
When discussing the future of a pregnancy, a woman needs the opportunity to examine her choices in a nonjudgmental, safe environment. Helping a woman think through all her options in an atmosphere of trust and respect gives her a chance to consider choices other than abortion.
Women’s Pregnancy Center (WPC) provides women with truthful and accurate information about fetal development, abortion procedures, risks and complications associated with abortion, and post abortion syndrome. Many times, this information alone is enough to help a woman begin to reconsider her decision to abort. Giving a woman additional information and support about parenting and adoption can also help a woman make a life-affirming decision for her preborn child. And, when we combine counseling with ultrasound … miracles happen. The presence of a life in her womb reinforces the counseling a woman has received and helps her to understand the ramifications of her choice.
When a woman has received all the information she needs to make an informed decision and still chooses abortion, we cannot take the blame. We pray for her and grieve for her child. We are only responsible to be faithful in what God has called us to do: share the truth in love. Conversely, when a woman chooses life over abortion, we cannot take the credit. All the glory goes to God for every baby that is saved because of the truth planted in the hearts of women here at WPC.
