“While many complain about the evils of abortion, abuse, addiction and crisis pregnancies, AMC provides medical expertise, practical parenting help and solid biblical counseling for women and their unborn babies. I wholeheartedly endorse Alternatives Medical Clinic.”
-Dennis Keating, Retired Senior Pastor Emmanuel Faith Community Church
“As a pastor I’ve been called upon many occasions to be right in the middle of people’s crisis and pain. That’s exactly where Alternatives lives daily. Their team of caring and compassionate servants are uniquely gifted to minister grace in practical and tangible ways, to those who otherwise would have to hide in the shadows of shame. Which is why I’ve counted it a privilege to lead our church in championing their work.”
-Miles DeBenedictis, Senior Pastor Cross Connection Church
“Raised in a Christian home and date raped at 16, I wrongly felt my only choice was an abortion because I did not want to tell my parents I was pregnant. The industry and society made it seem so simple that I went through it without considering other options. Now as an adult and mother of 4 children (3 thru adoption) and 2 grandchildren, I know that God was trying to bless me even throuugh my sin and tragedy, but I was too scared to receive it. As a facilitator for Surrendering the Secret (post abortive healing classes offered thru AMC) I’ve heard other women share their stories of loss, fear and pain; with most having no idea what was really happening to their baby or their bodies. If we, as a society truly care about women, their health and rights for choice, then we need to provide them education and information to make a fully informed decision. AMC does this by providing free medical care and counsel for women (as well as their partners) of all ages, races and religious backgrounds by providing STD information and pregnancy tests and showing pregnant women the stage of their fetus, etc. They also offer tremendous support (both tangibly and emotionally) should they want to carry the baby. Often, women still choose abortion and they do so with all the facts. With AMC’s help, many women have experienced the joy of motherhood and providing life/family for their child. I know firsthand that abortion is never a source of joy for anyone involved and want few women, men and children to have to experience this. Thank you AMC for caring for women and a whole (body, mind and spirit)!”
