Every year 1.2 million abortions occur in our country. That means 1 abortion takes place every 20 seconds. But abortion isn't just a national epidemic. It’s in our state. It’s in our city. In Ohio, more than 23,000 abortions occur each and every year. About 1,200 of those happen right here in Lucas County. The Pregnancy Center was founded to offer women considering abortion a place to go before they make this life-changing decision. At the Pregnancy Center, women are empowered with information and truth. They find hope, care and support. They find life ... and Christ.
Women in our city are searching the Internet every day for abortion services. The Pregnancy Center uses an outreach website and online advertising to reach the women most vulnerable – or even determined – to get an abortion. When they schedule appointments with our Center, we can offer them not only an introduction to their unborn child on an ultrasound screen but also the truth about abortion at an emotional, spiritual, psychological and/or physical level. In other words, we show them truth! Programs
When a woman comes to The Pregnancy Center of Greater Toledo, we share the truth about abortion and the unborn. The medical team at the Pregnancy Center provides free limited ultrasounds that allow a new mother to connect with her unborn baby for the first time. This usually results in a decision to carry. Our trained Client Advocates pray with clients, share the Gospel and the truth that they are loved by Christ the Creator of Life.
The women who come to the Pregnancy Center need more than just a single conversation about their situation. They often need medical referrals and support for the decisions they make. The Pregnancy Center provides the encouragement they need to continue their pregnancy as well as material and educational support to help. For any woman who struggles with a past abortion, we offer compassion while we lead them to the forgiveness and healing power of Christ.
