Are We Witnessing a Trajectory Change?

On October 3rd the House passed a bill that would ban abortion after 20 weeks of pregnancy. A similar bill passed in 2015, but this year’s passing seems a bit different. I don’t pretend to know if the Senate will follow in line, but I believe we are closer than ever at seeing a true [...]

Choose Love Today

I woke this morning to the sounds of my one-year-old calling for her mommy. I rolled over and was met by my four-year-old daughter snuggling for warmth against my side. I gave her a kiss and reached for my phone to silence the alarm. I quickly, as I do most mornings, scanned my newsfeed for [...]

What Happens When a Patient’s Water Breaks the Morning of Her Baby Shower? We Move the Baby Shower to the Delivery Room!

As many of you know, HOPE provides roughly 50 to 60 baby showers every single year. These showers are a consistent highlight to our year as we get to experience the love of a mother for her child, the outpouring of support from our community, and the impact love has on broken situations. We recently [...]

When Pro-Choice Means Fewer Options

Intellectual consistency and honesty is very important to me. Unfortunately, however, we live in a clickbait headline-driven world where intellectual consistency and honesty tends to take the back seat.

Pregnancy Centers: The Original Safe Space

Downstream

Healthcare is dominating the headlines today. It doesn’t matter where you go for your news; we are being bombarded with CBO analyses, political posturing, and finger pointing. Those on the left are attempting to maintain perceived gains while those on the right attempt to completely deconstruct much of the last eight years as they seek [...]

The Numbers

Recently, Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion provider, released their annual report. This report’s aim is to highlight their services over the past year. Don’t expect to read a serious synopsis on their work. Instead, you can expect to read branding, marketing, and propaganda from the abortion giant. My goal today, however, is not to [...]

Loved, Valued, and Respected

We recently added some wall art to the main hallway of HOPE. These simple black and white canvases provide a glimpse into the heart of HOPE with three very specific and intentional words: Loved, Valued, and Respected. I realize that for some these are mere words without a great deal of meaning, but for us [...]
