Secular Pro-Life president Kelsey Hazzard here. As a resident of southwest Florida, I want to thank everyone on Twitter who sent encouraging messages during last week’s hurricane. I was very fortunate. My loved ones and I are all safe, and my house did not suffer any damage. Electricity in my neighborhood has been restored, the kids are back in school, and life is getting back to normal.
Not everyone has been so lucky. We have all seen the images of devastation on the news, and unfortunately, non-profit women’s clinics are no exception.
My local pregnancy resource center, Community Pregnancy Clinic, reports that it sustained $30,000 worth of damage to its Naples location. Community Pregnancy Clinic is a faith-based organization that serves pregnant mothers of all backgrounds. You can help those families by purchasing maternity and baby items from the clinic’s online gift registry. And in hard-hit Fort Myers, Hurricane Ian forced Verity Pregnancy and Medical Resource Center to postpone its annual fundraising dinner — just when the community it serves faces the greatest need.
I encourage you to donate if you are able. You can also give to United Way of Lee, Hendry and Glades County or United Way of Collier and the Keys, neither of which fund Planned Parenthood or other abortion groups. Thank you for your generous support.
