Planned Parenthood has publicly stated that their clinics will remain open during the COVID-19 crisis: “It is important that patients do not postpone necessary health care, especially abortion services.” Planned Parenthood said they anticipate “an increased demand for services”.
Aid for Women’s pregnancy care centers and residential programs also remain open so that we may continue to serve at-risk women on the frontline of the abortion battle in the Chicago metropolitan area.
She had an appointment at Planned Parenthood…
This morning, a young woman named Alicia walked into our Flossmoor location. She had mistaken our center for the Planned Parenthood clinic next door, a situation that occurs several times each week.

After realizing her mistake, she agreed to stay and talk with a Client Advocate because she had some time before her abortion appointment. Alicia shared that she was feeling overwhelmed and alone in her pregnancy because of an abusive relationship with her boyfriend and worries of not having a job as a result of the COVID-19 crisis. Alicia spoke with her Client Advocate for an hour and then left for her abortion appointment.
Upon follow-up from her Client Advocate this afternoon, Alicia said that she had not gone through with the abortion. We know that she is still very vulnerable, but through God’s holy intervention — Life won today for Alicia and her baby!
We thank you, our generous donors and volunteers, for making a second chance for life possible for Alicia and her baby. Because of your continued support, Aid for Women will continue our life-saving mission through these most challenging of times when pregnant women are more abortion-vulnerable than ever!
