Pro-life alternative to Planned Parenthood starts to impact on US abortion numbers

Posted on July 31, 2015 at 9:31 AM
Kathleen Eaton Bravo is herself a post-abortive mother
Obria medical clinics.  Never heard of them?  That’s understandable, because they only exist in the United States.  But these clinics are fast becoming abortion giant Planned Parenthood’s worst nightmare as they fight against the anti-life tide to offer people an alternative to abortion.
Kathleen Eaton Bravo, who founded Birth Choice more than thirty years ago and who is credited with kickstarting the Obria model, says that Obria has gone from saving around four babies in 2006 to almost 1,000 in 2014; and this appears to be having a negative impact on the number of abortions performed at Planned Parenthood.  Bravo says: “As I started doing research and talking to the young people coming into our clinics, they said, ‘I went to Planned Parenthood. I’m just a number. But I come over here, and you sit down with me and don’t have an agenda. I’m telling all my friends about you.  And before we knew it, we were seeing over 13,000 patients in those three little clinics.”
The clinics offer a number of professional services for both women and men when it comes to pregnancy, including pregnancy tests, ultrasounds, and advice on natural family planning.  The inclusion of the father is critical in the Obria model and is very much at odds with Planned Parenthood and the general secular view that pregnancy is nothing to do with men.
Obria professionals are prepared to discuss the topic of abortion with those who attend their clinics but the focus is very much on alternatives to abortion and no Obria clinic offers abortion services.  Neither do they provide any form of contraceptive.
In this sense Obria is very much a beacon of hope for the pro-life movement as it lines up against the abortion conveyor belt that is Planned Parenthood.  Bravo has plans to take the model throughout the United States and encourages existing pregnancy centres to consider Obria's franchise option.  We can only hope Obria decides to make the leap across the Atlantic to bring hope to the United Kingdom.
