Getting Help

The pro-life movement is dedicated to sharing a message of hope and offering real assistance to women facing untimely pregnancy, as well as to women and men who are dealing with the painful aftermath of abortion. The information provided below is some of the most critical information a pro-lifer may have to offer.

Pregnancy resource centers (PRCs) nationwide provide free services, including confidential counseling, help dealing with family problems, medical care, housing assistance, and job placement assistance.

They also provide free maternity and baby clothes, diapers, and baby furniture. Two national organizations can help women find local PRCs:

National Life Center Help Line
Phone: 800-848-LOVE
Website: NationalLifeCenter.com

Option Line
Phone: 800-395-HELP
Website: PregnancyCenters.org

Pregnancy resource centers are always in need of donations of money, baby items and volunteer time, providing an ideal opportunity for those who care about needy mothers and their children to take action on their behalf.

Finding out that the baby they are expecting will be born with specials needs is one of the most difficult experiences parents can face. But they are not alone.
