Non-profit of the month: May 2006 - Avenues Pregnancy Center

Its hard work. Its necessary work. Its good work.

In many cases, the news of pregnancy or the possibility of pregnancy is received with great joy and culmination of hope and the result of a loving relationship.

However, there are some circumstances when such news induces anxiety and despair.

Where can a woman go in that situation?

Some women opt for abortion.

However, some women sense that that might not be the right choice.

Avenues Pregnancy Clinics and other groups like them offer pregnancy counseling, community support and service referrals, pregnancy and ultra sound tests, maternity and infant clothes, diapers and nursery items and abstinence and post-abortion counseling.

The Pro-Life movement's quiet heros are the staffs and volunteers of organizations like Avenues.

I have participated in Walk for Life fund raisers over the years and for this month's NGO of the month, I encourage you to join me in supporting a group in your area that has as its mission to help women consider options other than abortion and supports them as they choose life.
