For You From The Word
All the ends of the earth have seen the salvation of our God. (Psalm 98:3, NIV)
For You To Think About
Increasingly, pregnancy resource centers (PRCs) are converting to pregnancy medical clinics (PMCs).
There are more than 4,000 active pregnancy resource centers across the nation, sometimes called “crisis pregnancy centers” or “pregnancy care centers.” These centers provide invaluable services including pregnancy tests, education, and counseling for those who believe they may be pregnant or who have recently discovered they are pregnant.
Pregnancy medical clinics offer basic medical services in addition to those currently provided at PRCs. Some PMCs offer sexually transmitted infection testing and even prenatal care. Significantly, pregnancy medical clinics can offer ultrasound examinations.
An ultrasound is a diagnostic procedure which determines the viability of the pregnancy and also allows the mother to see a visual image of her unborn child. It must be conducted by a medical professional. The procedure is documented to impact abortion-minded women to choose life.
The advantage for PRCs which convert to PMCs is clear: the additional medical services attract more clients and give them complete information they need to make the best decision for themselves and their babies – particularly with the use of ultrasound.
Medical licensing allows the message of life to extend further.
For You To Pray
Thank You for pregnancy care centers and the support they provide to pregnant women and those who believe they may be pregnant. Provide funding these centers need to become licensed as medical clinics so they can serve more women and save more lives.
In Jesus’ name, Amen.
