Crisis Pregnancy Centers: The Birth of a Grassroots Movement
What if you were a sixteen year old whose period was late and who feared to tell her parents about her pregnancy? What if you were a woman, mother of two young children, caught in a custody battle with her ex-spouse when she discovers her period is over due and she has definite symptoms of pregnancy? What would you do if you knew there was a confidential place where you can get some free information from people who would listen and not tell you what to do? For over forty years, women in just these circumstances have come into crisis pregnancy centers all over America. This is the story of how these centers have blossomed and flourished because distressed pregnant woman have wanted them and because ordinary people have desire to help these women. Here is a compilation of testimonies of pioneers who have founded and sustained their centers through four decades. The author examines the milieu of the culture of death and speaks about the Crisis Pregnancy Centers as an idea that had to come into existence.
