A total of 143 lives were saved through Hope Life Center over the past 12 months (including two sets of twins!). This is a 29% increase in lives saved over the previous year. We are accomplishing our mission of empowering every woman in Illinois to choose life for her unborn child.
Shelby* is one woman who might have made a different choice without the free pregnancy consultation she received through Hope Life Center.
Already a mother to a toddler, the idea of caring for another child overwhelmed Shelby. She believed ending the pregnancy would give her the best chance of providing a good future for the child she already had.
When Shelby and her boyfriend, Cody*, left their first appointment at our clinic, they still planned to end their pregnancy. They also remembered the sound of their baby’s heartbeat and the images they had seen during their ultrasound. A week later, Shelby came in for her follow-up appointment. She told her nurse that she and Cody had decided to keep the baby! “We never really wanted to have an abortion,” she said. “We just felt like it was our only option.” Shelby and Cody needed time to get used to the idea of having another baby. Death had been transformed into life.
Every day, through partnerships with people like you, Hope Life Center is giving women like Shelby the knowledge they need to choose life for their unborn children.
Our goal is to raise $10,000 in monthly pledges by December 31st. This will set us up to save a record number of lives again in 2021 and every year after that until we accomplish our mission. We invite you to partner with us to make this happen. Would you be willing to make a monthly pledge of $25, $50, $100 or whatever you can afford to give 200 women the opportunity to choose life?
We don’t want to do this without you. Your partnership will change and save lives and bring us closer to accomplishing our mission of empowering every woman in Illinois to choose life for her unborn child.
