We continued our 2015 trend of having more people come to Hope Pregnancy Care Center in July 2015 than did in July 2014! We had 40 visitors come through our doors this month. We had folks come from King, Walnut Cove, Pinnacle,Pilot Mountain and Winston-Salem.
We gave one pregnancy test that was negative. 2 people received maternity clothes, 4 received baby clothing, 1 received some baby toys, 1 received some baby food, 33 received some baby wipes. Other items given out were baby bath lotion and shampoo, a stroller, baby shoes and some baby bottles.
Our diaper bank was very busy this month as we gave out 86 New Born diapers, 138, Size 2 Diapers, 652 Size 3 diapers, 460 Size 4 diapers, 625 Size 5 diapers and 30 Size 6 diapers. We gave a total of 1,906 diapers out. We are grateful to our partner the NC Diaper Bank-Triad and our local church partners who supplied us with the diapers we are able to give out.
We are grateful to all of our volunteers who continue to keep us open on Monday, Thursday and Saturday. We have had the pleasure of a summer volunteer, Lori and we have a brand new volunteer Paulina, that will begin helping on Thursdays really soon. We are thankful that folks continue to give generously the baby items we are able to give and to the churches who had baby showers that supplied us with items we really need….especially the wipes for the little tushes!
Lifenews.com reports today: “Following the release on Tuesday of a second video by the Center for Medical Progress (CMP) depicting a Planned Parenthood executive discussing the selling of body parts from aborted babies, ABC’s World News Tonight and NBC Nightly News teamed with the top Spanish-language networks to completely ignore the heinous video.”
“Likewise, Tuesday evening’s PBS NewsHour showed no interest in the undercover video, which featured Planned Parenthood Medical Directors’ Council President Dr. Mary Gatter openly debating the price of parts from such babies and suggesting there’s a “less crunchy technique” to conducting abortions that would produce better “specimens.”…..”
“A shocking video showing a top Planned Parenthood official casually discussing the shipment of aborted fetus body parts to research labs is fueling calls in Washington and state capitals for investigations and hearings.”
“The video, shot last July, was released by the Center for Medical Progress on Tuesday. It shows two undercover CMP activists posing as employees from a biotech company having lunch with Deborah Nucatola, Planned Parenthood’s senior director of medical research, and chatting about which body parts are in demand.” Fox News July 15, 2015
One of the reasons we do what we do at Hope Pregnancy Care Center is expressed in this article. It is amazing!
“A viral video that shows the first year of a preemie born at 25 weeks gives glory to God and supports the fact that all life is precious.
Parents Benjamin and Lindsey were not expecting their unborn son Ward so early when he was unexpectedly born 3 1/2 months early on July 16, 2012. At 25 weeks, Ward Miles Miller was only 12 inches long and weighed 1 pound, 13 ounces at birth.
Babies this age can be legally aborted in the womb.” LIFE DYNAMICS JUL 13, 2015 | 2:09PM WASHINGTON, DC

Why does society push abortion on women in crisis is the title of a July 7 post on the National Right to Life website. It, in part states: “Abortion is sold as the solution to a pregnant woman in crisis. If she is poor or abused, if she lacks support from her partner or family, if she is still in school, our society tells her she should have an abortion. Many times, it’s the only “choice” she is offered.”
Hope Pregnancy Care Center offers alternatives to that one choice. We can give you information that is not given by the so called “pro-choice” folks. If you want to talk, please call us at 336-983-9990 during office hours or call our Executive Director directly at 336-575-3291 most anytime. If you like, leave a confidential message on either number and we will get back to you as soon as we possibly can.
Feel free to explore our website or go to our Facebook page and see what information you might get from that. We often put local, statewide and national articles of interest for you to read. Just remember there really is more than that one “choice” and we’ll help if you want us to.
Just a reminder that Hope Pregnancy Care Center will be closed to celebrate the 4th of July on Saturday July 4. We will be open today Thursday July 2 from 2 pm until 6 pm and will be open on Monday, July 6.
