If you’re searching for unplanned pregnancy support, you’ve likely heard conflicting information about crisis pregnancy centers. Former clients leave positive reviews online, while people who may have never been to a center claim that they deceive women and pressure them into keeping their pregnancies.
Right now, you need clear answers and unconditional support. If you’re hesitant to visit our center, keep reading. In this blog, we’re sharing the truth about crisis pregnancy centers.
MYTH: Crisis Pregnancy Centers Can’t Provide Real Medical Help
FACT: Free medical services for pregnancy testing, STI testing and treatment for Chlamydia, Gonorrhea, and limited OB ultrasounds are performed by a nurse on staff at our Woodland Park location. Free pregnancy testing may be performed by professionally trained staff who are under the nurse’s supervision at both our Woodland Park and Cripple Creek locations.
MYTH: Crisis Pregnancy Centers Use False Advertising to Trick Women into Visiting
FACT: Our goal is to be 100% transparent with all of our clients. We use the same marketing techniques that other pregnancy care centers use to reach potential clients. That includes appropriately disclosing that we do not provide or refer for abortion services on our website and marketing materials.
MYTH: Crisis Pregnancy Centers Guilt Women Into Keeping Their Pregnancies
FACT: We want to help every woman make a fully informed decision for their unplanned pregnancies by helping them explore each pregnancy option. We respect every woman’s autonomy and encourage them to make the choice that best fits their unique situation. We never judge women who choose abortion after visiting our clinic and welcome them back should they want someone to talk to or need our services again.
MYTH: Crisis Pregnancy Centers Don’t Actually Help Vulnerable Women
FACT: Many of the women who visit our center feel scared—scared that their relationship could be ruined, that they could face discrimination or abuse, or that their lives could change in a horrible way. Some feel pressured to make a decision that they don’t feel comfortable with. Others are tempted to make a snap decision out of fear.
Our goal is to help these women feel heard. To help them to see that they are strong and capable and to understand that there are choices with their unplanned pregnancy. We want to educate them about the truth of these choices. For women who decide to parent, we offer free parenting classes, baby supplies, and a mentor to walk this journey with her as long as she wants our support. For women who choose abortion or who are hurting from past abortion(s), we offer after-abortion care, to help them find peace and healing.
MYTH: Crisis Pregnancy Centers Discriminate Against the LGBTQIA+ Community
FACT: Our mission is to provide confidential care to anyone who needs our help. Whether you need to confirm your pregnancy, STI testing and treatment, or a listening ear, we are here for you—regardless of who you love or how you live.
We strive to help you make an informed and empowered decision that fits your unique situation. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, sexual orientation, or gender.
