I pray this finds each of you enjoying the love and light that this season brings! Thank you for your support of Informed Choices! Together, through your gifts, we are sharing the gift of Christmas all year long. The love, grace and light of Christ brings strength to mothers like Anna, who found Informed Choices just in time last year. Anna cancelled her abortion after having an appointment at one of our clinics. She received the unconditional love of Christ as the ultrasound shined light on the life in her womb.
A Christmas thank you…
“The day I gave birth to my miracle was the best day of my life and being his mother is the greatest gift that I have ever received – words cannot explain! Finding Informed Choices was a pure act of God. I have never met such a caring group of individuals and they are all still right there with any support or love that we need. Thank you for making this all possible!” ~Anna
Your support was significant in making Anna’s story possible. If you have already sent in your gift, THANK YOU! If not, I urge you to send your Christmas gift TODAY!
1,300 women similar to Anna’s story found us, but 4,000 women last year did not. Iowa has the highest U.S. rate of usage of the RU-486 pill. When a woman is given this abortion pill, she is sent home from the abortion clinic with a second pill to take in the next two days, which will finish the abortion. The trauma of having her abortion alone and seeing her dead child lasts a lifetime. The adverse reactions of any type of abortion are often long and painful. They can range from depression, anxiety attacks, self-destructive behavior, or difficulty bonding with later children. The most heartbreaking of all is the effect it has on future families.
Your gifts go a long way in breaking this cycle and bringing healing and life to IOWA Families! The unconditional love expressed through your generosity connects women and their families with the love of Christ, often for the first time in their lives.
This year we are adding some much needed services to the already robust outreach of the clinics. The role of a Life Coach/Client Advocate will communicate with clients and provide mentorship for clients. This will help our nurses, since our number of clients has grown so significantly. We are also partnering with an organization called “Kaden’s Kloset” which provides material assistance to at-risk families and foster parents. Please keep these new ventures in your prayers. We are going to need volunteers for these roles and added finances.
Your continued support is vital to doing this LIFE-SAVING work! Please pray about giving a generous year-end gift. A family’s future is in your hands. Today, more than ever before, we need to be able to shine light on the life in the womb. Your gift today will help us reach more women like Anna in their time of need!
Thank you for your prayers and support. May you have a blessed Christmas!
With a grateful heart,
Informed Choice of Iowa
