Support funding for Abortion Alternatives in Missouri!
Pro-abortion advocates try to claim that they are “pro-choice.” However, abortion advocates tell women there is only one appropriate choice –terminating their pregnancy.
On the other hand, pro-life advocates should be striving towards empowering women and providing real options and resources for women in crisis pregnancies.
Fortunately, Missouri Governor Eric Greitens is working to provide those options to women. He has just proposed a state budget for 2018 that includes $6 million dollars towards Missouri’s “Alternatives to Abortion Program.”
Please join us in urging the legislature to support and approve this important funding.
Through the Alternatives to Abortion Program, women in crisis pregnancies can receive prenatal care, medical and mental health care, parenting skills education, educational services, housing, transportation, domestic abuse protection, job training and placement, and other services. The program serves women through pregnancy and through their child’s first birthday.
Women deserve real choices when facing unplanned pregnancies.
As a series of recent investigative videos produced by Live Action have demonstrated, Planned Parenthood clinics offer women only one option –abortion. Planned Parenthood clinics do not offer prenatal care and, in fact, individual clinics are required to meet certain quotas of abortions each month.
A former employee of Planned Parenthood recently revealed that she was trained “to really encourage women to get an abortion and to [get] it at Planned Parenthood, because that would help us meet our goal [quota]. We would try to have the appointment for the abortion scheduled before they left the clinic.
“We would say things like, ‘your visit today costs X number of dollars, how much of that are you going to be able to pay today?’ If they said, ‘I’m not able to pay today,’ we’d say, ‘If you can’t pay ten dollars today, how are you going to take care of a baby? … There is nowhere you can go to get help, don’t you think your smartest choice is termination.’”
It’s clear: the abortion industry doesn’t offer women choices, they only offer death.
We must remember that every abortion ends a human life that is made in the image of God. There is sanctity in each and every human life, and we must fight on all fronts to protect unborn children.
Please join us in asking the legislature to support and approve funding for Alternatives to Abortion in Missouri.
