Clinics promoting birth not abortion get more state funds

Lets hear it For the State of Minnesota!

North Side Life Care Center and 36 other groups that steer pregnant women away from abortion will get a combined $4.75 million from the state over two years. Lawmakers and Gov. Tim Pawlenty approved the "Positive Alternatives Act" last year.

At North Side, located in a former dentist's office, a $129,180 grant will help expand prenatal care and other services - including free ultrasounds, infant formula and car seats - to more expectant mothers. The staff here are on a mission to persuade low-income pregnant women from north Minneapolis and nearby suburbs to have babies, not abortions.

"We know that abortion kills babies, but it also hurts women," said Cindy Lorsung, the center's executive director. "I know that women suffer and I don't think they need to suffer."

The grants can't go to groups that provide abortions or refer women to others for abortions, but they can mention abortion among the list of options. North Side clients get a Minnesota Department of Health brochure showing images of fetuses from two weeks to birth, describing abortion procedures and their risks, and warning of "emptiness and guilt" after an abortion.

Cradle of Hope, a Roseville-based group that provides cribs to pregnant women statewide, got the biggest amount -- $285,000.
This is EXCELLENT news! Hopefully the tides will turn and perhaps I can see an end to Abortion in my lifetime!

We still have a long way to go to stop abortion, but slowly with actions like these and what OAS has recently done it appears the Baby Killers are loosing the Battle!
