medical, educational, emotional, and spiritual support that they need. And during these turbulent economic times, more and more women are finding themselves in this type of crisis. We are here to listen to their concerns, educate them about their options, and empower them to make life-affirmingchoices!”

We are excited that this event has no borders. You can listen in from anywhere in the world—just imagine how far our reach could go if you were to share this event within your social circles, and those friends shared it within their social circles, and so on? I hope you and your family can join us for this family friendly event; to learn more about the lives being saved right here in your community!”
