Pregnant? Confused? Need help?It is clear that God has a clear knowledge of the unborn child.
Well, I’ve got some awesome news for you! Now, creepy and misleading ads like the one above, with little information about which services will be provided to the women they target, won’t as easily be able to fool and trick you anymore!
Remember when we told you about that hearing in NYC to consider legislation that would regulate crisis pregnancy centers (CPCs) in New York City?
Well, today, just a few months later, all that advocacy has paid off, as New York City just passed that very legislation by an overwhelming vote of 39-9-1. From now on, CPC’s in NYC will be regulated to prevent them from lying or misrepresenting themselves to women.
They will be required to disclose whether they have a licensed medical provider, and also say whether they’ll refer women to other services, including emergency contraception and abortion.
This is amazing news, since, as yall know, these centers use false information, lies, and scare tactics to intimidate women out of accessing the care they want and need.
Huge thanks go out to city council member Christine Quinn and New York mayor Michael Bloomberg, who both backed the bill, as well as the countless advocates who showed their support for this cause from the beginning.

“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you;
Before you were born I sanctified you…” Jeremiah 1:5
“My frame was not hidden from you
when I was made in the secret place.
When I was woven together in the depths of the earth,
your eyes saw my unformed body.
All the days ordained for me
were written in your book
before one of them came to be.
How precious to me are your thoughts, O God!
How vast is the sum of them!” Psalm 139:15-17
Jesus Himself rebuked his followers for preventing infants and children from coming to Him.
“Then they also brought infants to Him that He might touch them; but when the disciples saw it, they rebuked them. But Jesus called them to Him and said, “Let the little children come to Me, and do not forbid them; for of such is the kingdom of God. Assuredly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God as a little child will by no means enter it.” Luke 18:15-17
How it must grieve Him that those who claim to follow Him are now justifying their death.
