Post-Abortive Mother's Letter to Billy Graham Reveals Why Pregnancy Centers Are So Important

In June, the Supreme Court defended the free speech rights of pregnancy resource centers (PRCs), which exist to give women facing crisis pregnancies an option besides abortion. California had passed a law forcing them to advertise for abortion, and the Court rightly struck down this law. But abortion activists will continue to fight against them.

This past week, Heidi Matzke, executive director of Alternatives Pregnancy Center in Sacramento, Calif., and one of the plaintiffs involved in the case National Institute for Life Advocates (NIFLA) v. Becerra, read a powerful letter from a post-abortive mother to the late Reverend Billy Graham that proves just how important PRCs truly are.

Matzke explained that even though her pregnancy center and hundreds like hers had won at the Supreme Court, they still face opposition in California and elsewhere.

"We will forever, I think, be up against those who are against us in this issue," Matzke told PJ Media. "I don’t think that will ever go away."

Since the fight will never go away, pro-life Americans will have to know and share why these centers are so important. Matzke read a letter that "changed American history and pregnancy centers now exist to help women like this."

Here is the text of the letter (emphasis added). Matzke also read the letter on video, and that can be seen at the bottom of this article.
