There’s a story in the Iowa Right to Life News January edition that showed how pro-life clinics are making a big difference in Iowa. There are actual numbers to show how abortions have gone down after certain clinics opened. Here is an excerpt:
Informed Choices in Iowa City opened April 2009. Before
2009, annual abortion totals in the ITOP Region (ITOP = Iowa Termination of Pregnancy Report) that included Iowa City, never fell below 500. After Informed
Choices opened, the 2009 total was 409. In 2010, it
dropped to 376 and in 2011, the number fell to 354.
Marys Choice opened in Sioux City in early 2011. In the
three years prior to the pregnancy center opening, 2008,
2009 and 2010, the abortion numbers were 200, 176 and
167. In 2011, with Marys Choice in the market, abortions
were down to 129.
Thank you for that. That is substantial progress. Kudos to those groups. It takes special kinds of people to put their thoughts, words and prayers into [legal] action.
No wonder the abortion advocates spend so much time and energy denouncing these "anti-choice" pregnancy centers. Every woman who chooses to be responsible and not get pregnant, or who carries a child to term, is a threat to their whole narrative that women can't avoid pregnancy and hate having babies.
