More than 1.2 million pre-born children lose their lives to abortion each year, including 7,603 in South Hampton Roads in 2011. More black Americans are killed by abortion than all other causes of death combined. And perhaps most alarming – 73 percent of women having an abortion report a religious affiliation.
Lifting up LIFE in our Community
Crisis Pregnancy Center of Tidewater would like to partner with local churches to impact lives together. In addition to making free life-affirming resources available to pastors, we’d like to encourage you to become a catalyst for change.
As we prepare to honor life in January for Sanctity of Human Life Month, would you consider stepping out in a new way? Maybe God is calling your family to fill a LifeChange baby bottle for the first time. Or maybe your weekly Bible study group is ready to dig into a discussion about life issues. Or is now the time for you to receive healing and hope from a past abortion?
Author Eric Geiger shares on his blog,
“In your church, people have been affected by abortion. Some studies say that 5.6 million evangelical Christian women have had an abortion. That means 1 out of 6 women you look at on a Sunday morning have been through this experience. Many are plagued with pain and regret and desperately need the all-encompassing forgiveness of the Lord applied to their hearts.”

It’s not too late to get involved. You and your church leadership can connect with CPC and find a special way to share your conviction for LIFE.
For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be. How precious to me are your thoughts, God! How vast is the sum of them! Psalm 139:13-17 NIV
