The president of a national pro-life organization that has saved thousands of babies born to abortion-determined mothers says pro-life health clinics and pregnancy centers are becoming more effective at reaching pregnant mothers and persuading them to choose life.
The Human Coalition, a pro-life group that operates seven women's care clinics throughout the United States and is affiliated with over 35 pro-life pregnancy centers, also operates six "lab-driven" divisions in key "abortion-dense cities" nationwide. The labs continually run various tests to determine the optimal methods and environments that will help make its affiliated pregnancy centers, health clinics and call center more successful when it comes to saving the lives of unborn babies.
As the Human Coalition has saved nearly 6,000 babies from abortion, its president and co-founder, Brian Fisher, was a featured speaker at the Family Research Council headquarters in Washington, D.C. last week. Fisher outlined a number of ways the Human Coalition and its clinics and affiliates have statistically improved the rate of abortion-determined women being reached by pro-lifers and the number of abortion-determined women who choose to carry their children to birth.
1. Target the abortion-determined marketplace
In order to be most successful, pro-life pregnancy centers and clinics need to directly reach out to the pregnant women who are leaning toward aborting their children. According to Human Coalition statistics, only between 1 and 3 percent of abortion-determined women actually talk to anyone from the pro-life movement before aborting their child.
Fisher asserts that pro-life clinics and centers need to do a better job of penetrating the abortion-determined market.
"While pregnancy centers see a large number of clients, most of them are in the 'undecided' and 'likely to carry' categories," Fisher said. "There is nothing inherently bad or critical about that statement. Those women also need to be served. But my point is that we must also recognize that the abortion-determined woman is unreached and needs to be captured into a pro-life system of care."Christian Post article continues
