"Abortion... Absolutely Not"A Prolife Website Devoted to Educating Youth on Abortion and Prolife Issues, Helping Pregnant Women and Saving as Many Babies from Abortion as We Possibly Can! Since 1981 we have been operating 5 homes for pregnant women seeking an alternative to abortion. Over 15,000 preborn babies have been saved from abortion through our national hotline (1-800-NO-ABORT) and now our websites. Our experience counseling thousands of pregnant women has taught us that many women get abortions simply because they don't know where to go for housing assistance. We thererfore have developed a "Prolife Shelter Search Engine" which lists over 500 homes for pregnant woman by State.

Healing from Abortion"That abortion wasn't an accident. It wasn't just a difficult decision. It wasn't subject to a sort of situational ethic. It was wrong. I had made a choice to end a life, a choice whose ripple effect had hurt a lot of people over a long time.
