Forty-four Years and Counting


January 22, 2017 was the 44th anniversary of the passage of the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion in the U.S. The number of lives lost through abortion since 1973 is estimated to be between 58 and 60 million. Ohio Department of Health records from 1976 through 2015 show that 5,369 Delaware County residents obtained abortions during that time period. What is Pregnancy Resources doing to make a difference? 
  • Prevention: PRDC helps sponsor Relationships Under Construction (RUC) in Delaware Middle and High Schools. RUC is a marriage and education program that serves students ages 12-18. RUC teaches avoidance of risky and unhealthy behaviors, such as using drugs and alcohol, and having sex outside of marriage. When confronted with the real consequences of STI/STDs, teen pregnancy and emotional bonding, many students rethink relationships and sexual activity.
  • Intervention: Our office is a safe place for women and families in the midst of an unplanned pregnancy. We intervene in the decision making process by providing education, material aid, and options. We affirm every child as a welcomed child and present adoption as a life-giving decision for all involved.   
  • Healing: Because the "choice" of abortion is so accepted, women often become silent once they realize the negative emotional and spiritual consequences of their decision. We offer Living in Color, a confidential healing workshop that offers Christ-centered hope, healing, and forgiveness. 
Thank you for your support of our programs. Please pray for our staff, volunteers, and clients, and  tell someone about us!
