10 Great Things about the Pregnancy Care Center

I love the Pregnancy Care Center and help out when I can.  They’re always looking for volunteers and donations of clothing and baby items.  Check out their website for more information.

10 Great things about the PCC

1. It’s free. Totally free to any unexpectedly pregnant woman.
All services are free and confidential to all pregnant women and men who seek their services. Through the generosity of local churches, businesses, and families/individuals and a few grants the PCC has been able to keep its doors open since 1986. They are not eligible to receive Federal money.

2. They are giving. Their giving is without reciprocity.
Their time, dedication, baby clothes, maternity clothing, emergency formula and baby food supply, and services are given without the expectation of donation. A donation is extremely helpful, no doubt; but not necessary, at all.


3. They welcome everyone. Every race, creed, nationality, etc.
They do not judge. It doesn’t matter your economic status, the color of your skin, male or female, the cause of your pregnancy, PCC wants to help you make the right decision.


4. They have honest discussions about alternatives, if chosen.
PCC is Christian-based and therefore will not advocate or suggest terminating the pregnancy. They will however, offer you information on what abortion is in its truth should you opt for abortion. It is PCC’s hope and prayer, that you will chose alternatives to abortion whether it’s keeping the child (with ongoing support), or putting the child up for adoption. The choice is for the parent(s) to make.


5. They have free recourse for moms-to-be.
Resources such as free ongoing counseling, sexual integrity and education, baby formula, baby food, and diaper emergency supply, clothing, toys, baby equipment such as cribs are available for moms-to-be.


6. They help a mom to keep her baby (or offer the baby to adoption if wanted)
By helping mom make a decision with good conscience, mom and dad will feel 100% in control of their pregnancy. Something they feel is lost when they first discover they are pregnant.


7. They are not an adoption agency.
Because there is absolutely no affiliation with an adoption agency (or adoptive parents), there is no chance of coercion, or kickbacks, or anything illegal. PCC is transparent, ethical, and moral in all their decisions.


8. They are not an abortion agency.
Because PCC is Christian based, abortions are not advocated. There is no chance to be coerced into having an abortion at all. In fact, the PCC will help you chose the best alternative to abortion.


9. They are Christian-based.
Because of their strong Christian faith, they have formed alliances with surrounding churches in the area. There are many more alliances they are seeking and currently have plans to expand. One does not need to be Christian to obtain their services, but must understand they are Christian based.


10. They offer counseling to those who have had abortion(s) in the past to help heal.
PCC makes no judgement on any man or woman who has had an abortion. They offer free counseling for those who seek help in coping a past decision to abort. A 10-week Bible study program runs 4 times per year to help post-abortive men and women cope and forgive themselves.

Yes! You Should Be Able to Decide!

Published by:

I saw this statement on a pro-choice site and it occurred to me that, YES!!! Everyone should be able to decide if, when, how, and with whom they start or grow a family. As an anti-abortion Catholic woman, I totally agree.  That’s why there’s the choice to use birth control, and/or abstinence if you DEFINITELY don’t want to parent with that jerk.  You decide by CHOOSING not to get pregnant with someone you don’t want to be with.  Birth control has been proven to be effective.  If you CHOOSE to have unprotected sex, well then – you choose to have a baby because that’s what happens with unprotected sex, right?  Ya, ya, I know that birth control can fail 0.0099%.  Tell me, how in heck did it fail for over 54 million times? (The number of abortions in America since 1973 -I’m going to puke) I don’t understand that.

The next failed argument is ‘I don’t see you taking in unwanted babies’.   Well… if there were actually ‘unwanted’ babies to take in, I would.  But since the few number of unwanted babies who actually come to term are taken up for adoption lickety-split, there’s none left for me.  Babies are adopted fast.  Bring your baby to term and offer adoption. You’ll see for yourself just how fast.  There are loving parents just waiting with open arms.

The next failed argument – there are hundreds of thousands of unwanted babies now.  Where? Tell me where in America are there hundreds of thousands of unwanted ‘babies’ now. Oh! You mean children who have been mentally abused by their parents who no longer want them because they can’t handle the mental instability of the child due to their own cause? Those babies? Now that’s irresponsible.   But let’s not let the children suffer. We have homes for these children.  Where do you think they live? In a homeless shelter? In an orphanage? Seriously, people reach out to children in need ALL THE TIME.  You will find these people are Christians. Period.   It’s what we do. We protect those who cannot protect themselves. Like unborn children.
