UnPlanned and Crisis Pregnancy Help Centers


In my previous article:  Planned Parenthood Debate and What is Life I gave a synopsis of the spirit in which we come to earth.  I surmise that just stating that would turn people off, especially those who are very religious.  I do hope that some did watch the movie that I added to the article at the end.  Yes, it was a long one, more than 100 minutes.  It was well worth it though to have watched it and worth it to watch it with all the family members or group members, church members for they are all part and we are all part of that big family.

I got some great answers from a source and they helped me out tremendously on where a woman can go to get help is she find herself with an unplanned pregnancy.  I want to take all the negativity and bashing of the organization, Planned Parenthood, and turn it into a positive note.  Oh yes I have come across some people that just cannot see past the hatred and that hatred they are spreading around. They seem to have this "Tunnel Vision" and cannot for the life of them figure out that such and organization was there for a reason.  They can't seem to see the other things that this and other organization do for Women in general.

For this reason it would be a better alternative to help all those Women and the men that are involved in the pregnancy too and educate them.

We should strive to "be there" before these desperate women get to the abortion decision.

We should educate every single person about what the body does when it conceives.  This should not be exempt with age.  It should be taught in High School and in the Church at the age before their hormones rage and they find it difficult to control them.  Personally I do not think that parents will teach their children these things.  One reason is that most of them do not even know their body's themselves.  Another reason is that it matters not if they are religious or not...puberty and pregnancy is not specific.....everyone goes through puberty not matter what you believe.  It is programmed in us all.  Therefore we need to take a stand and get over ourselves and educate the younger, and older generations to know themselves and what happens with their bodies and what to expect.  The taboo of puberty and the life that changes all of us and those acts that produce unplanned pregnancies need to be lifted.  This is all natural.

An unplanned pregnancy is such a shock to some that they can't think about anything else but what they are going to do with their life and the life of the child they are carrying.  Men are directly affected by this and those who are not need more education and help.  Some greet the unplanned pregnancy with love and find that they cannot wait until the baby is born.  They have a village to support them.  Those who are in a state of shock do not or do not feel that they have support from their family, their peers or a village.  They do though, and this is why I am writing the follow-up to my article that I link at the top of this.

I live in West Virginia and am going to share the places that help pregnant women.  Some of the links that are a source for other crisis pregnancy centers in all the states.

So here is the list and please do not hesitate to share this with others.  You never know who you will help or who needs the help.
