The blog you are about to read talks about another episode of Politely Rude With Abby Johnson, where Savanah Marten, executive direcor at The Pregnancy Center Of Greater Toledo, talks about the common myths about Crisis Pregnancy Centers that pro-choicers spout, and reveals the things that women face when coming to these centers (a summary derived from the show notes of the podcast).
Abby starts by telling her about her personal story about when she was pregnant with her fourth son, Carter. She talks about making the switch to an insurance company called Solidarity Healthshare, which does not pay for anything that we don’t believe in, such as abortifacients, abortions, etc.
The podcast goes on to discuss pregancy centers–Abby discussing an experience that she had in helping a woman. Savanah talks about what pregnancy centers really are–how that they came out of the Roe v. Wade decision in 1973, and the difference between medical and non-medical pregancy centers. She debunks the myth that “pregancy centers are fake clinics,” citing the Charlotte Lozier Institute’s report put out by Heartbeat international, which you can download at the link provided above.
Savannah goes on to talk about an experience she had where she was talking with a lady who needed more formula (I won’t go into the details here due to time, space, and because I want you to listen to the podcast), but she mentions how her center works with BrightCourse, which is a program through Heritage House (I think I linked to the right site).
Again, here is the podcast to listen to in full. God bless!
