The future of the pro-life movement is one of multi-faceted support – for child, mother, and father – and extends beyond the initial pregnancy decision. Pro-life is not simply “anti-abortion.” Pro-life work envelops and witnesses to the belief that all human life is created equal, regardless of size, legal development, education, and degree of dependency. Consequently, by this definition, taking a life of a pre-born baby is a violation of the fundamental right to life. As Christians, we must begin to view the issue of life through the lens of discipleship and find ways to offer long-term practical and spiritual support for life decisions. Pro-life work in our day requires witness and action to share these beliefs with the expectation to protect and defend the most vulnerable—life in the womb. Life Care Pregnancy Center provides Christian direction and support to individuals and families facing a pregnancy decision. As such, our time with these families is limited, however our goal is always to ensure women, men, and families continue to receive ongoing Christian discipleship, fellowship, and personal support well beyond their participation in our program. The church is perfectly situated to do this, but we need a strong network of local churches that are equipped for this task. Please read more to learn about the many resources which exist to help your church boldly serve families & support LIFE! If your church chooses to participate in any of these pro-life initiatives, or offers other means of compassion ministry or support, please let us know! Our desire is to develop close ministry partnerships with local churches that have taken intentional steps to become places of welcome, discipleship, and practical support for those facing life decisions, so that we may encourage personal connections as early as possible in their time with us. "I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly." ~ John 10:10
