When women and men come into the Center for options counseling, they are usually filled with fear, therefore from the moment they enter the Center, we desire to make them feel at ease. The women receive a pregnancy test and spend some time talking with the counselor before their partners join the session.
Before a woman makes a final decision, especially if they are considering abortion, we impress on them the importance of considering all their options. An unplanned pregnancy naturally causes a lot of questions, and there are rarely any easy answers. But, we believe that all life is valuable because we are all made in the image of God. We operate from the belief that God knows the child in the womb as well as the woman and man that are receiving counseling.
We are here to help them make the best choice regarding their pregnancy that they can possibly make by guiding them step-by-step through the options at their disposal. We believe that going through this process and providing them with honest information will allow them to see the value of the life of their unborn child. Offering free ultrasounds are another way to help clients to truly connect to the life of their unborn child.
Ultimately, we want the women and men to know that they are not alone in this process and feel empowered to make a decision for life for their child.
