Non-Profit Offers Services For Women in Pregnancy Crisis
Roe v. Wade allows abortion to be legal until the baby has grown enough to survive outside the mother’s womb.
One local non-profit organization wants the public to know that they are here to help, no matter what your choice is.
Laredo life center provides help for women in a 'crisis pregnancy.'
These women are scared and just don't know which way to turn for help.
Laredo Life Center wants to help even the women who have had abortions.
"They are having a hard time dealing with that, they have a lot of emotional, just thinking about their babies and how old they would have been this year and it would have been my babies birthday and things like that. They are having a really hard time dealing with that and we are here to help them with classes."
This life center provides many classes for soon-to-be-mothers as well.
They use these models to show woman what their baby looks like at different stages.
"We have counseling, we sit with them on a weekly basis and we will discuss with them whatever problems they feel they are going through. We are a Christian ministry so we do use the Bible to help heel them. We know that’s the great healing."
This non-profit evens offers a boutique that has everything from cribs to diapers, toys, and lots of clothes.
All these things women can earn through points they receive for taking classes.
Free pregnancy tests are also available.
Volunteers say they just want to help women in need.
"They come in here and feel like they have no hope, they are scared about what their parents are going to say and their boyfriends so we're here to kind of clear their head a little, give them the options they have and listen to them. A lot of times they just want to be heard."
