Crisis Pregnancy Centers: Compassion
FACT: PRO-LIFE MEANS COMPASSION
For years the pro-life movement has supported Crisis Pregnancy Centers (CPCs)
which assist women, and their mates, in handling unintended pregnancies. These
centers provide for the woman's emotional and physical needs, from counseling
and support groups to assisted living, free clothing for mother and child,
job training and, in some cases, financial aid. This is the safety net critics
accuse pro-life advocates of ignoring. But the net is in place and growing.
More than 3000 CPCs operate nationwide, most with volunteer staff and
break-even budgets. Just imagine how many women they could help with the $75
million in tax money the Clinton administration has pledged  to Planned
Parenthood International to promote abortion overseas over the next 5 years.
