According to TIME magazine, pregnancy centers are playing an important role in why abortion rates have lowered in recent years: “That would seem to be evidence that the quiet campaign for women’s hearts and minds, conducted in thousands of crisis pregnancy centers around the country, on billboards, phone banks, and web sites, is having an effect…” (Jan. 21, 2008)
The Reality of Abortion
Each day, women wake up in our communities believing abortion is the only realistic solution to an unplanned pregnancy. In this tragic decision, not only is a human life snuffed out, but a woman’s life can be changed forever. First Coast Women’s Services, however, seeks a more immediate route by supporting one woman at a time, to spare her and her unborn child the sorrow of abortion.
Free pregnancy tests, ultrasounds, abortion information, referrals and consults, and material assistance are just some of the many services that empower women to choose life. First Coast Women’s Services is a pregnancy care center that operates under the guidelines of Care Net International which provides compassionate hope and help to women and men who are facing fear and indecision in a time of real crisis. We are a local expression of a national movement of Pregnancy Care Centers across the nation that in the words of TIME magazine, are the “kind, calm, non-judgmental” face of the pro-life movement.
