Pregnancy Resource Center set on fire by arsonist

By Sarah Terzo

In May of this year, an arsonist set a pregnancy resource center on fire. Live Action News covered the story:

In the early morning hours of May 3, the Women’s Care Center of Peoria, Illinois, part of a national chain of pregnancy care centers based out of South Bend, Indiana, was targeted by an arsonist who set fire to the locked building…

The Women’s Care Center provides free pregnancy testing and ultrasounds to over 500 women in the local community each year, with 13 women served per day, 1,000 ultrasounds performed annually, and 596 babies saved in the last year, according to the center’s website…

While the fire was contained largely to one main room, heat and smoke damage throughout the building rendered the property a total loss, estimated at $250,000.

The article referred to director of client care Connie McClure:

“McClure told the Post that counselors were already on the phone Monday morning speaking to some of the center’s 500 current clients expecting babies in the coming days and months, promising that their care would continue. “It may look a little different, but we’ve made a promise we will be there to support them.”
