A Sad Anniversary

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.

Life Centers Joins in Celebration of Two Lives


 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.

The (Long) Story of New Branding and Websites

When 2014 started, we set a goal to improve our websites. Our main site (lifecenters.com) and our client focused website (pregnancychoicesindy.com) both were 8+ years old and showing their age (websites age in dog years). The main site was difficult to edit and was written in a programming language that was no longer being supported. It was also cumbersome and unable to handle many of the things found in a more modern website. The client site was worse. I could not update it at all, and when we moved into our Admin office, the address listed on the website stayed the same.

I began to interview web developers. I ended up interviewing eight different groups. It was probably premature, since we had no budget for a website.
