5 Ways to Help Your Local Pregnancy Care Center

Recently I wrote about the Supreme Court’s leaked draft opinion that seeks to overturn the horrible 1973 Roe vs. Wade decision that legalized abortion. Although this leaked document was only a draft and no official decision has yet been made public, the leak has (violently) ignited the abortion debate across the country – you probably didn’t. seen some of the intense emotions surrounding such an important topic in your social media feeds.

But, unfortunately, the rage felt by many who are pro-abortion (really, pro-child sacrifice, which is murder), was voiced by at least one person who burned down and vandalized the headquarters of a pro-life group in Wisconsin on Mother’s Day. Apparently the vandals threw a Molotov cocktail through a window, and when it failed to ignite, they started a fire and then spray painted, “If abortions aren’t safe, then neither are you” outside the building. (Of course, the irony is that no abortion is safe – in a “successful” abortion, at least one person always dies!).

It is a wonderful time for believers to support these ministries and help prepare them to help even more women if Roe vs. Wade is indeed reversed.

While thankfully most pro-life centers and pregnancy care centers are not vandalized, these groups are doing compassionate and lifesaving work at a time when their adversaries are vocally slandering them and tensions are running high. It is a wonderful time for believers to support these ministries and help prepare them to help even more women if Roe vs. Wade is indeed reversed. Here are five practical ways1 to help your local centre:

  1. Volunteer. It may seem obvious, but consider this: Pregnancy care centers need volunteers to run their day-to-day operations: answering the phone, counseling mothers and fathers, offering post-abortion care, and gospel hope. , perform pregnancy tests, ultrasounds, STD tests, and more. But a volunteer who can offer a pregnant couple a free maternity photoshoot, a free prenatal massage, translation services or even a haircut or manicure could be a huge boon to the center, helping them to make sure that moms and dads feel valued.

  2. To give. Again, a no-brainer, but ministry costs money, and God uses his people to do his work, often through their generous financial gifts. But there are other ways to give than just donating to the main ministry. Host a baby shower to make a mother who may not have the means or support to host a baby shower feel special. Host a diaper or formula drive to provide essential baby items to families in need. Get creative with your family (what a great way to help kids see the value in life!) about how you can give.

  3. Fill their closets. Check with your local center to see if they accept donations of gently used maternity and baby items. Then donate what you may have that you no longer need and ask friends and family to join you.

  4. Talk to your church. Involve your church family in supporting a local center. Consider seeing if your church could “adopt a mom” and buy everything she needs — from a car seat to a crib to diapers — to care for her baby. A great way to do this is to ask the mother or care center to create an Amazon Baby Registry of the items she needs. Then ask church members to purchase items from this register, which are then shipped directly to the center to be given to the mother.

  5. Pray. What we see playing out in the culture right now regarding this issue is ugly – and it is part of a spiritual war. We must pray that moms and dads choose life and that pregnancy care centers continue to operate safely with compassion, help, and gospel-centered hope.

We praise the Lord for the many committed people who give their time, resources and energy to save babies for the glory of God. It is vital work in a dark time.

Speak for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all those in need. (Proverbs 31:8)
