The “pro-choice” movement is all about one choice: abortion.
And women who go to pro-choice groups looking for help with parenting or making an adoption plan usually are left to fend for themselves.
This is happening in Texas right now with the new state heartbeat law. Pro-abortion groups are doing everything they can to “help” women “choose” abortion, including sending a mobile abortion facility to the border.
Meanwhile, pro-life advocates are quietly and compassionately offering real help to mothers and their babies across Texas, providing financial aid, material resources and many other forms of support, all for free.
It’s difficult to find anything that pro-abortion groups offer for free to women in need. Abortion is big business, after all.
Recently, Just the Pill, a pro-abortion group based in Minneapolis, Minnesota, that charges $350 for abortion drugs, sent out a fundraising email asking for money to get their new mobile abortion facility to Texas.

“Anti-abortion extremists in Texas have created a human rights disaster,” the group warned, neglecting the fact that unborn babies also are human beings.
It noted that some Texas women are traveling as far as Chicago and Minneapolis to abort their unborn babies and waiting up to three weeks for an appointment. Other women are not having abortions at all because of the law – something pro-abortion groups see as a tragedy rather than a joy.
To “help,” Just the Pill plans to take two mobile abortion facilities to the Texas border to sell abortion pills – dangerous drugs that can kill mothers as well as their unborn babies.
It also is hiring drivers to help take the abort drugs to the border of Texas and New Mexico.
“Just The Pill was started in 2020 by clinic workers to expand access to abortion care in under served communities by mail and mobile clinic in Minnesota, Montana and Wyoming. We have grown to a team of four and are expanding to eastern New Mexico,” according to a job listing on the group’s website.
The pro-abortion group also advertises “no-touch, no-test medication abortion” without ever seeing a doctor in person, as well as birth control and STD treatments, according to Bustle.
It does not provide prenatal care or other support to women who choose life for their babies.
That is what pro-life advocates are doing.
Along with passing the heartbeat law this year, Texas state lawmakers also increased support for pregnant and parenting mothers and babies, ensuring that they have resources to choose life for their babies. This included $100 million for the state Alternatives to Abortion program as well as additional funding for the Healthy Texas Women program.
Texas has more than 200 pregnancy resources centers that provide free services to mothers in need, not counting maternity homes and other resources for struggling families. Some pro-life organizations create scholarships for pregnant and parenting students, and others offer financial aid to help pay rent, childcare and medical expenses.
The heartbeat law has the potential to save tens of thousands of babies from abortion every year. In 2020, about 54,000 unborn babies were aborted in Texas, and about 85 percent happened after six weeks of pregnancy, according to state health statistics. Pro-life leaders estimate the law has saved about 3,000 babies’ lives since it went into effect Sept. 1.
But the pro-life movement is not just focused on banning abortions under the law. Pro-lifers also are dedicated to supporting parents and their babies so that every life is protected and abortions become unthinkable.
