- Surrendering the Secret - Post Abortion Counseling
In almost all cases, women come to Life Choices Medical Clinic for a free pregnancy test. The urine-based test we use registers a positive result 7 - 10 days after conception with a 98% accuracy rate.
Volunteers receive training to assist patients based on their needs. Patients are presented with options based on the result of their pregnancy test. If the test is negative, our counselors are trained to discuss abstinence and the risk of acquiring sexually transmitted diseases. When a patient's test is positive, she is given factual information about parenting, adoption, and the risks and complications of abortion. She is also offered a sonogram. In either case, all patients willing to listen are told of Christ’s love and purpose for their lives. Counselors are also prepared to provide assistance to women who are post-abortive. Community referrals are available for rape crisis counseling, legal assistance, job training, day care, housing and care for special needs infants and children. Patients can receive assistance in applying for Medicaid.
Ultrasound - Sonography
In late 2011, Life Choices—Agape completed its conversion to a medical clinic offering free sonograms to all of our pregnant patients. This service is provided to confirm a viable intrauterine pregnancy and to determine the gestational age of the developing baby. Studies repeatedly show that, when a woman sees her baby on ultrasound, she is far less likely to abort. Similarly, when the father sees his child, he is far more likely to bond with his child and encourage the pregnancy to continue.
Pregnancy / Infant Needs
Patients with a positive pregnancy test are eligible for material assistance in the form of baby items, diapers and clothing.
Surrendering the Secret - Post Abortion Counseling
Many women (and men) suffer from psychological trauma after being part of an abortion. Surrendering the Secret is a Bible study designed to help women and men find forgiveness and peace after an abortion. God has the answers to any problem we face and will meet us at our point of deepest suffering with compassion and love, but he requires our active participation in the process.
