And welcome or not, each pregnancy represents the kind providence of the Lord and His intention for the parent to participate in His adorning of history with that new person.

On October 9, 2015 the governor of California signed a bill passed by both houses of the CA legislature ordering pro-life medical clinics to advertise to each patient where and how they can get an abortion. This is a direct violation of the mission of these organizations and a violation of the deeply held religious
