This is not a story one would ever expect to find in the San Francisco Chronicle, but I’m glad it’s in the Augusta Chronicle, published in Augusta, Georgia.

It’s a genuine human interest story about Augusta’s Care Pregnancy Center (CPC). The CPC is an organization that truthfully provides “reproductive health care” for everyone involved, including the unborn child.

According to the Chronicle the CPC doesn’t confine its interest in women to the nine-month gestation period, “Augusta’s CPC has helped more than 1,000 girls and women through life-changing, often life-threatening problems with unplanned pregnancy, sexual and physical abuse, drug and alcohol issues, financial desperation, and more in the past year.”

In 2016 alone the center saved an entire future elementary school classroom as between 25 and 30 crisis pregnancies resulted in a healthy birth.

That’s why I’m honored the center choose me to speak at this year’s annual banquet that raises private sector charitable donations — as opposed to coerced federal tax dollars — to support the important work the CPC does.

The banquet is also a chance for me to meet the center’s Director Susan Swanson, described by the Chronicle as inspiring, “We frankly have never met anyone who was more dogged and determined in helping girls and women in trouble, or in trying to right a wayward society that puts so many females in harm’s way. For decades, she’s been dauntless in fighting for marriage, abstinence and accountability — all the pathways toward long, healthy, functional lives.”

The Chronicle editorial also gets down to specific cases when it discusses a woman called “Nancy” described as someone “in and out of relationships all her life, most of them dysfunctional, manipulative, abusive or all of the above.”

These relationships resulted in three children, three abortions, and the loss of custody of her surviving children. Now, thanks to the CPC she’s in two relationships that have turned her life around. Christ and the center. The CPC helped pay for intensive in-house drug treatment and now “Nancy” has been clean for four years. Today she works for the CPC and has accepted Christ into her life.

Now “Nancy” can return the favor as she helps other women avoid the mistakes she made or help them correct their own mistakes and poor choices. Most of the people that read this column don’t live in Augusta and won’t be attending the dinner. But that doesn’t mean you can’t help in this effort.

Most cities and towns have a crisis pregnancy center like the CPC. I urge you to look yours up and help in any way you can. Volunteer, donate, or refer someone to the center. It’s a worthwhile cause that makes the world a better place.
