Through kindness and emotional and material support, pregnancy resource center counselors accompany women on their pregnancy journeys

Published on

Allie was in a state of despondency and was contemplating the option of having an abortion when she encountered Jackie, a counsellor at a pregnancy resource centre.

Allie was eager to engage in a conversation with someone, and Jackie was more than willing to provide a listening ear. The young woman expressed her distress to the counsellor, stating that her parents had issued an ultimatum: if she did not terminate her pregnancy, she would be required to relocate.

This was not Allie’s inaugural pregnancy. At an earlier point in her life, she had been compelled by her mother to undergo an abortion, which resulted in the demise of what would have been her firstborn child. During her second pregnancy, she experienced the misfortune of a miscarriage.

Allie, who is currently expecting her third child, had finally found an individual who was willing to provide her with unconditional support. Subsequently, Allie observed that the counsellor was the first individual to inquire about her preferences.

The young woman was able to secure employment and accommodation with the assistance of a counsellor who demonstrated confidence in her abilities. Additionally, she reconsidered her initial decision to terminate the pregnancy, perceiving the infant as a blessing.

This is one of the many success stories of the Pennsylvania Pregnancy and Parenting Support Program. The program has now served over 320,000 women and their families, with the number of participants continuing to grow.

Counsellors provide emotional and material support to women during their pregnancy journeys. The programme illustrates the impact of one individual’s willingness to provide support to a woman during her pregnancy. This support is shown to be a significant factor in influencing the woman’s decision regarding the life of her unborn child.

The programme’s objective is to empower women so that they may make life-affirming decisions for themselves and their families. The services are provided free of charge and are confidential. They are delivered in an environment that represents a calm amidst the storms that many women face, particularly during a pandemic.

Pregnancy centres such as Tender Care are a valuable and underappreciated resource in the American heartland. They are assisting in the formation of robust families and dynamic communities, one woman at a time. In an era when indifference and disorder are often the dominant themes in the news, these pregnancy centres are prepared to serve with dedication and humility. In light of their efforts to assist women, it is imperative that we provide support to these centres, which are playing a pivotal role in enhancing the circumstances of women in the United States.
