Pro-lifers help couple with unplanned pregnancy


On a Tuesday morning in Advent, the father and mother of an unborn baby heard the Good News of Jesus Christ on the sidewalk in front of Planned Parenthood in Bettendorf. 

Their problem, according to the dad, was that “it is expensive to raise children in America. We can’t afford another one.” The couple instead decided to cancel their abortion appointment and protect the life of their fourth child.

The Women’s Choice Center quickly came to their aid as did Ray Knight and the youth group at St. Paul the Apostle Parish in Davenport, who agreed to “bless” this family of five through the Elizabeth Ministry program.

The Helpers of God’s Precious Infants extend an invitation to each of you to join us on the sidewalks in front of the abortion clinics in your city. Bring a friend and pray a rosary or a devotion. The Helpers provide a peaceful, prayerful, presence to those who feel alone and abandoned.
