Each year I have the privilege of addressing the various national training conventions for pregnancy center directors. Over 2,300 of these centers across the United States serve close to 2 million people every year. This outnumbers the approximately 750 abortion mills. And while the abortion mills receive millions of dollars from the government, 29 out of 30 people who work in the pregnancy centers are volunteers.
As I travel the nation, I frequently visit these centers, which are usually affiliated either with Heartbeat International, Care Net, or NIFLA, three of the largest networks of centers.
I urge the Churches and the centers to work very closely together so that everyone tempted to abortion will know that better alternatives are close at hand. Visit priestsforlife.org to learn more.
