Today is Sanctity of Human Life Sunday, and I delivered the sermon this morning at my church here in Louisville, Kenwood Baptist Church. My text was Proverbs 24:10-12. At the end of the sermon, I exhorted the congregation to support alternatives to abortion with their prayer, time, and money. I mentioned two organizations in particular here in Louisville that they might consider supporting. Here are the names, links, and info about both of these groups.
A Woman’s Choice Resource Center is a crisis pregnancy center that assists pregnant women with free pregnancy testing, ultrasounds, maternity/infant clothing, counseling, and information about adoption. The Center is a frontline effort at convincing women to keep their babies and at supporting them after they do.
The Lifehouse is a maternity home for women and families facing an unexpected pregnancy. They provide spiritual, emotional, physical and intellectual needs of pregnant and/or parenting teens and women and their children, both born and unborn, in a Christ-centered home environment.
You can be a part of delivering the innocent from being led away to death by supporting either one of these groups. I would encourage readers to consider working a monthly donation in to your family budgets for groups such as these. The two websites above have sections for making donations.
10 If you are slack in the day of distress,
Your strength is limited.
11 Deliver those who are being taken away to death,
And those who are staggering to slaughter,
O hold them back.
12 If you say, “See, we did not know this,”
Does He not consider it who weighs the hearts?
And does He not know it who keeps your soul?
And will He not render to man according to his work?
