When I read the letter critical of the pro-life movement ("Pro-life sanctimony," March 10), I felt the need to respond. The author claims that the only concern pro-lifers have is the delivery of live babies, but they have no programs to help with the situation.
Pro-lifers care very much about the care and well-being of the mother and her child. As one who has done volunteer work with my local pregnancy center for almost 30 years, I can attest to this fact from many years of experience. Most pregnancy centers offer free pregnancy tests, sonograms, STD testing, confidential counseling, maternity clothes, baby clothes, diapers, wipes, supplies, cribs, mattresses, baby formula and food, housing, parenting classes, transportation, prenatal vitamins, and, if it's something we can't help them with, we refer the mothers to someone who can.
