What a great time to be pro-life! So many of us are excited about a shift in the Supreme Court that may overturn Roe v Wade. Wouldn’t that be wonderful? Think of it, women and babies would be protected and abortion would no longer be the “go to” option for a difficult pregnancy situation. I think I hear the angels singing!
Of course, people would still need pregnancy help. At PDHC, we hear about challenging pregnancy circumstances every single day, but we also have the privilege of seeing parents bring in their new babies and being thankful for the help they received. I have never heard of a woman coming back to our center and regretting having her baby. I know of plenty of women who have regretted their abortions. That is why it is so important that people receive the pregnancy help they need to choose life.
We have made such great strides as a community of life! Politically and culturally life is winning. Nationwide abortion rates are the lowest they have been since Roe. In Ohio, abortion rates have dropped by over 10,000 in the past 10 years. Locally Franklin County has seen a decline of 33%, but the last Ohio Department of Health report still shows 3,158 abortions took place in our community. Even one is too many.
I am so grateful for our elected officials and right to life organizations who work to make pro-life policy changes, for social justice and advocacy groups, for a vast network of pregnancy help centers around the nation, and for all of you who support life in a variety of ways. We are making a difference!
If like me, you are wondering what more God is calling you to do? There are some practical ways you can help –

I am praying with you for our country and that more and more might know the gift of life and life in abundance.
P.S. – Now is the time! Contact your Senator and ask that they support a swift and fair nomination for Supreme Court Justice.
