Even when you’re doing the right thing, there are those who will try to stop you.
Virginia has many life-affirming pregnancy centers that are under attack by pro-abortion group, NARAL.
This group is out to ruin the reputation of pro-life pregnancy centers and you won’t believe how.
Pregnancy centers in Virginia channel the love of Christ by giving compassion and support to expectant mothers.
We live in a culture where vulnerable, terrified pregnant women are encouraged to give into their fears and abort their babies.
And not only is abortion considered a viable alternative to an unexpected pregnancy – it’s often the first option to cross people’s minds.
But life-affirming pregnancy centers combat this culture by giving women the support and aid they need to choose life for their babies.
In 2019, pregnancy centers in Virginia provided nearly $3 million in free services for local communities, caring for families and saving tax dollars.
In contrast, abortions are often costly procedures and can have lasting impacts on the women who get them.
And because the services provided by pro-life centers threaten today’s pro-abortion culture, pro-abortion organization, NARAL, released a report titled Fake Clinics Lie to intentionally undermined the legitimacy of pregnancy centers.
In NARAL’s report, they claim that Virginia’s pregnancy centers are spreading lies and inaccurate information to their patients.
But this could not be more false.
Pregnancy centers are bound to a strict code of ethics, requiring them to provide medical services only under the direction of properly licensed physicians.
They are required to adhere to full truthfulness and medical accuracy, along with many other legal guidelines. So, for NARAL’s accusations to be true, not only would pregnancy centers have to violate a number of laws, but the physicians would have to violate the medical and moral standards they adhere to as well.
Obviously, this is not what’s really going on. Pregnancy centers are upstanding organizations that take the care and well-being of their patients seriously.
It’s clear NARAL is willing to do whatever they can, even stooping so low as to prey on the fears and uncertainty of pregnant women, to do away with their pro-life competition.
Unfortunately for NARAL, God’s will always prevails. The pro-abortion culture stands no chance against Christ’s love.
Combatting NARAL’s abortion culture is NIFLA, the National Institute of Family and Life Advocates, which is providing pregnancy centers with much-needed support throughout the pandemic, just as they always have.
To learn more about NIFLA’s efforts and how you can help, you can visit their website. By supporting them, you will be increasing the efforts to protect unborn babies and give support to families.
Remember to keep pregnancy centers in your prayers, especially those being subjected to unfair attacks. Together, we can fight the devastating effects of a pro-abortion culture.
