A young woman came to one of centers. She stated she had a positive home pregnancy test last week and a negative one last night. Understandably, she was confused on whether she was pregnant. She said she wanted to know for sure before her 12:45 appointment at an abortion clinic. She did not want to pay the $500 for the abortion if she wasn’t pregnant. She had already had her initial appointment with them the day before, and they had not performed a pregnancy test. She was headed there today for an ultrasound to verify pregnancy.
Roe V. Wade
Today is the 42nd anniversary of the Roe V Wade decision. A sad reminder of a choice our government has made about the value of life. Since that decision, more than 55 million abortions have occurred in the United States. Regardless of what the future holds concerning abortion laws, Life Centers will be on the front lines showing compassion and giving hope to young women facing pregnancy decisions.
On Saturday January 17th, the day before Sanctity of Human Life Sunday, many gathered at the Washington East Park Cemetery to celebrate two lives that ended too early. Baby Amelia, a newborn who was found wrapped in a sweatshirt near Eagle Creek Park on December 28th and baby Harmony, who recently drowned in a bathtub. Their joint service was organized by a ministry called He Knows Your Name. Many from Life Centers were there to take part in the service. A local news crew from WRTV-6 (ABC) covered the event. Mia Coltrane, a volunteer at Life Centers, was there and told the news reporter “It was important for us to be here today just to show respect for these children who didn’t have a chance.” We were honored to be part of the celebration that so beautifully showed the value and beauty of life.
