For all those who say the pro-life movement doesn't care about the mother or baby after the baby is born, here are some numbers and facts:
1. 2,752 locations--That's the number of pregnancy centers in the U.S. Some of these do ultrasounds by trained nurses). #prolife
2. Of the 2,752 pregnancy centers in the U.S., 6 out of 10 offer ultrasounds but all offer some kind of assistance during pregnancy and AFTER birth. #prolife
3. 81,630 pregnancy center volunteers--these volunteers consult with clients, teach parenting classes, staff the boutique where new moms can find maternity and baby clothes, car seats, etc. #prolife
4. Prenatal and classes and parenting classes are available at a majority of these centers and they cover pregnancy, childbirth and parenting up to age 2. #prolife
5. Because they are community based, pregnancy centers have relationships with other resources in the community and find help for clients in need. #prolife
6. How does the pro-life movement off all of this help? 6.5 million VOLUNTEER hours. No taxpayer funds. IT'S FREE!! They have no financial interest in a woman's decision, no quotas, no incentives. #prolife
7. I can't speak for every pregnancy center but where I worked, we held baby showers for new moms and lined up donors to supply a year of diapers for clients who wanted the help. #prolife
8. We held parenting classes for moms and separate classes we called "Developing Dads" for fathers. We offered Christmas photo sessions for clients who wanted photos of their children for Christmas. #prolife
9. Our center (and a vast majority do this), offered free diapers, wipes and formula to anyone who came in off the street who was in need. No questions asked. No need to prove the need. #prolife
10. Our center also worked with a couple of churches to help out moms who were under great financial need. #prolife
So, next time I see someone write that the pro-life movement doesn't care, I say, "Prove it." Find me some facts, hard evidence that all across this country, every facet of the movement stops caring at the moment of birth. You won't find it. #prolife
Do we care about women? YES. Do we care about children with special needs? YES. Do we care about mom and baby's physical needs? YES. Do we care about mom's emotional needs? YES. Does the pro-life movement charge a dime for what we do? NO #prolife #prowoman
