For the past 30 years, abortion rights and human life have been a political hot button in our nation. Since 1973 when abortion in the US was legalized, over 40 million women have chosen abortion. It is estimated that 43% of all women will have at least 1 abortion by the time they are 45 years old.

With numbers that high, the Christian community cannot ignore that there are many walking wounded in our midst and we're still in the battle for the lives of the unborn and the souls of the women facing the life-changing challenge of an unplanned pregnancy.

The Agape Pregnancy Resource Center provides compassionate care, practical help and accurate information to women who believe they're pregnant and who may be considering abortion. We offer help without judgment and a path to Christ, both in word and deed.

Partner with us! You can choose from many opportunities to help women in unplanned pregnancies and their unborn babies. Because of the generosity of local churches, businesses, civic groups and individuals, Agape Pregnancy Resource Center has been able to help—free of charge—hundreds of young women and their families facing an unplanned pregnancy.
