Online for Life Cooperatively Rescues 1,000th Baby from Abortion
Educational Non-Profit Provides Compassionate Care for Families in Crisis
DALLAS, July 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — The educational non-profit Online for Life (OFL), which works to rescue babies from abortion so they can live to make their mark on the world, has reached a significant milestone – 1,000 babies saved.
“I would have been thrilled if we had saved only one life,” OFL co-founder and President Brian Fisher said. “But to save 1,000 … is truly humbling. This proves that abortion can be stamped out with compassion, grace, and tangible help. “
The life-affirming decision was made in Springfield, Missouri, on Friday, June 26.
Realizing that most individuals and families facing an unwanted pregnancy and considering abortion don’t fully understand the ramifications of their decision, Online for Life helps connect them with life-affirming centers that provide caring counsel along with complete and accurate medical information.
In addition to providing a free ultrasound and discussing all of the options available to women and families considering abortion, life affirming centers share information about the emotional and psychological impact of terminating a pregnancy.
As each family or individual chooses life for its baby, OFL celebrates the decision on Facebook and via its app, which also invites people to pray in real time for those who are being counseled at the life-affirming centers.
OFL, which went online in early 2010, hopes to save its next thousand children in even quicker fashion, and eventually wants to change the cultural discussion about abortion – that it’s not an “easy out,” but has devastating consequences for men and women alike.
Fisher also challenges men to step up to their responsibility in supporting their partners and protecting their unborn children. His recent book, “Abortion: The Ultimate Exploitation of Women,” addresses the many cultural myths about abortion, laying responsibility for it squarely at men’s feet.
“We won’t end abortion in America until men individually choose to live their lives in a manner that rejects selfishness,” Fisher writes. “Abortion exists because of male selfishness. And it will continue to exist as long as men continue to see their own power, control and pleasure.”
