Daily the battle to protect women, families, and the pre-born wages on. For more than 50 years, we have lived in a culture that falsely claims abortion is healthcare while also declaring that pre-born life is not life with value. Sadly, while some laws may have changed, hearts are still hardened and the abortion industry is thriving.

Recently, the Guttmacher Institute released their 2023 abortion statistics. On the national level abortion has increased by 10% since Roe was overturned with the Dobbs decision in the Summer of 2022. In 2023 over 1.2 million abortions were provided through our US healthcare system. This horrific number does not include internet based do-it-yourself abortions where no US doctor or clinic was consulted – the actual number of abortion occurrences is likely much higher.

This is the highest recorded occurrence of abortions in America in more than a decade (2012). In Illinois there has been a 72% increase in abortions provided – with nearly 53,000 lives lost last year. More than 25,000 women came to Illinois as abortion tourists.

But we will not lose hope! At Pregnancy Resources we don’t offer abortion, we don’t encourage abortion, and we don’t refer for abortion – and we are HONEST about that. Knowing this simple truth, women & men still walk through the doors every week looking for help and searching for truth. Every week abortion appointments are canceled. Every week moms and dads choose life for their child. And we are so very thankful!

This summer, the needs of our community will be great. Hundreds of neighbors/family members/friends will make life or death decisions for their pre-born children. Your continued support during #SavingLivesSummer2024 will help us help them at the moment life hangs in the balance. Working together, hearts will change and lives will be saved. Thank you for making a difference this summer!
