Most of the crisis pregnancy centers in the U.S. are working to end abortion. Deborah Wood, the CEO of Asheville Pregnancy Support Services in Asheville, North Carolina helps pregnant girls in providing emergency housing if their parents threaten to throw them out. Free pregnancy tests and ultrasounds are done too, if required. The women are shown the images of ultrasound of their fetus, through which they can relate themselves. The technique helps in creating a bond between the two and in most of the cases, women have, averted the idea of aborting their fetus. Much of the antiabortion movement remains focused on changing laws, tightening restrictions one by one, state by state. But Wood and her team talk of changing hearts. They are part of a whole other strategy that is more personal and more pastoral, although to some people it’s every bit as controversial. Hillary Clinton has called abortion a sad, even tragic choice to many, many women and talks about improving education and access to birth control so that abortion becomes a right most women never have to exercise. The latest trend according to Wood is to convert pregnancy centers into health clinics that offer free pregnancy tests, ultrasounds and testing for sexually transmitted diseases. What they will not offer is referral for birth control. Married clients wanting information on contraception are referred to their own doctor. Now the question emerges, would this personal and more pastoral technique be instrumental in reducing the number of abortions. After all, the goal of caring people – eliminating all abortions – will require a radical transformation of society.
