I love my church. One of the reasons I love my church is that they deliberately try to reach abortion-bound women. The Trinity Heartline Women’s Clinic is a real-life clinic for women. With a full-time Registered Nurse, and caring leaders meeting with women throughout the week. We offer free pregnancy tests and free ultrasounds to women that want them; and then we offer counseling to help them make an informed decision.
What I really love about Heartline is they’ve recently captured the heart of adoption, and in the last year alone referred over 15 women to put their children up for adoption into Christian homes. Heartline also provides incentive for mothers that choose to keep their children to attend parenting classes, and then qualify for gifts for their babies. We call it “earn while you learn”, and how cool is that? On top of all that, Heartline also provides post-abortion care to women living with the pain of past decisions.
I know that abortion is a sticky subject to address many times, but I’m glad that my church has taken a stance for life in the city of Lubbock. I’m glad that they do it in a responsible way that brings hope to my city.
