We must always be on the lookout for new ways the enemy attempts to steal, kill, and destroy. In the ongoing attack against the pre-born, today more than half of all abortions occur with abortion pill drugs. This type of at home, do-it-yourself, abortion has typically utilized two unique drugs to induce an abortion. The first drug, Mifepristone, cuts off blood supply to the womb and causes death to the fetus. The second drug, Misoprostol, makes the uterus contract and expel the fetus. In the midst of this type of abortion, sometimes a woman will want a second chance to choose life. It is possible to stop this process and re-stabilize the pregnancy with Abortion Pill Reversal protocol. The abortion industry knows this – and hates it.
As a result, the latest disturbing new abortion trend is an aggressive, high dose, Misoprostol Only multi-pill protocol. This drug regimen eliminates the use of Mifepristone and removes the chance to stop the abortion process. Women are now being instructed to consume high doses of Misoprostol (starting at 3 to 4 pills every 3 to 4 hours) until she sees the baby pass. It has been reported that the abortion industry is mailing out 12 to 20 pills at a time!
This is dangerous and increases the risk of significant complications and fatalities. For the woman, if she has experienced a prior Cesarean Section then she is at higher risk for a uterine rupture. Her other complications can include bronchospasm, heart arrhythmias, blood clots, maternal heart attack, and the possibility of an early live birth delivery. For the child, if this new abortion method doesn’t work there is the increased risk that the child will be born with birth defects. Moreover, many states, like Illinois, do not legally require infants born alive after an attempted abortion to be offered medical care – and thus the child can be left to die even after surviving an abortion attempt.
You, dear friend, are providing hope in these difficult times. With your support, Pregnancy Resources’ team is trained and ready to provide factual and compassionate information and empower moms to choose life and avoid the devastation of an abortion decision.

We just wanted to send a quick thank you for all you do! We were blown away by the “baby shower in a bag!” So many fun and essential items! We were touched by the generosity. And since then, we’ve really enjoyed the classes and shopping at Bella’s! Becoming new parents is hard work, so we’ve really appreciated all the support from Pregnancy Resources.

When I was a young girl, I felt God had placed an anointing on my life to be a missionary. Life happened… poor choices… unforeseen circumstances and I believed that I would never be able to walk in this calling. But God. In His divine providence, God has unexpectedly led me to Pregnancy Resources and in my short time here, God has been teaching me some valuable lessons.
First, God will not place us where He will not equip us for service. One of the biggest struggles in my life is perfectionism. Underneath perfectionism is a fear of failure. Thinking, “I don’t know if I can do this…” As I have learned what nursing at a pregnancy care center means, there has been a freedom and peace that I have never experienced before. I am realizing that God equips me by giving me confidence and courage. There are still days when perfectionism tries to sneak in, but God is faithful in refocusing me back to the reason for my service.
“For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline.” 2 Timothy 1:7 NLT
Second, working at Pregnancy Resources is not just a “job” but an opportunity to serve daily in ministry. As I meet with clients and listen to their stories, I am in awe of the bravery it takes for them to walk through the doors of Pregnancy Resources. What a privilege! Every time I see a little heartbeat on the US machine, I feel it’s a privilege to be the first one to see it. Every time there are tears shed by our clients, I feel it’s a privilege that God allows me to grieve or celebrate with them. I feel it’s a privilege to pray with and for them. And it’s a privilege to love them! Thank you for making this type of ministry possible.
