be the one?
85% of women who’ve had abortions said they would have made a different decision if only one person had offered to support them with their pregnancy and preparing to become a mom.
Your support can be the difference-maker in a woman’s story, empowering her to choose life when everyone else tells her she isn’t strong enough for that decision. Will you join us to offer her the life-affirming resources she needs today?
David Smith, Executive Director, Illinois Family Institute
The Southside Pregnancy Center is an indispensable organization that cares for women and their babies. The team is an amazing source of love and care for women who are facing an unexpected pregnancy. Their ministry means that women don’t have to deal with this crisis alone. Working on behalf of defenseless, vulnerable human beings, preborn and born, they provide much needed support. At the same time, they share what God says about the sanctity of human life; abstinence until marriage; and the tragic consequences of abortion, infanticide, euthanasia and assisted suicide.
If you believe in the words of our Declaration of Independence, that all human beings “are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life,” I encourage you to support the invaluable work that is being done by the Southside Pregnancy Center in order to help them reach more women and families.
Rebecca MacDougall, LCSW Executive Branch Director, Bethany Christian Services of Illinois
I have had the honor of working with Directors, staff, and volunteers at Southside Pregnancy for over 20 years. I have always appreciated their long view of supporting the women they serve, protecting and serving each person who enters their doors with loving options, and developing strong families.
Joe Lazar, Vision 2020 Cook County, Faith Network Leader
Many people are surprised to find out that the Pregnancy Center Network of Illinois triples the number of abortion facilities. If these people were familiar with the Southside Pregnancy Center, this encouraging fact would not be remotely surprising. The SPC staff pours every ounce of their energy and creativity into offering life-affirming options to moms and dads being tugged at by the profit-driven abortion industry. As a sidewalk counselor who spends hours each week at the front door of an abortion center, I am beyond grateful for the free resources SPC has provided us, which have helped lead to five mothers choosing life just moments before their abortion appointments. Praise God, that even while abortion is legal, the SPC is tirelessly working behind the scenes to give moms and dads options that the abortion industry will not.
Ann Scheidler, Vice President, Pro-Life Action League
Southside Pregnancy Center is an essential tool in the mission to rescue women and children from abortion. South side Chicago and suburbs are blessed to have this tremendous resource in the neighborhood. The compassionate and experienced counselors at Southside Pregnancy offer the only real choice to women grappling with an unintended pregnancy. I am honored to work alongside Southside in the pro-life movement.
Dr. Carol Fouse, Executive Director, Churches for Life
Southside Pregnancy Center is a treasure in their community as they faithfully serve women experiencing unplanned pregnancies in an excellent, professional way as well as supporting families in need. Their vision extends beyond the walls of their center helping to unite the pro-life community which is essential in the battle to bring an end to abortion in Illinois. I appreciate their support of our ministry by providing meeting space for workshops focused on engaging local churches to stand for the lives of the unborn and support life-affirming ministries like Southside Pregnancy Center.

We members of the Knights of Columbus are honored to work with the staff at Southside Pregnancy Center. We are happy to support their Mission, and have great respect for all that they do for our community to create a Culture of Life.
Jor-El Godsey, President, Heartbeat International
Southside Pregnancy Center began their vital life-saving ministry in the midst of a national wave of pregnancy help centers (1984). Since the very beginning they have reached and served women at-risk for abortions faithfully and in a faith-filled way. With compassion as the hallmark of their services they have also deployed pioneering programs and outreach tools to extend into under-served areas. Their commitment to serving and saving lives and lifetimes have been a blessing to the Southside area. We have been blessed by their affiliation for more than 25 years.
Jackie Conrad, Executive Director, Deeper Still Chicago
I consider Southside Pregnancy Center (SPC) to be a very important ministry to the community. The life-affirming options-based counsel that is offered to the patients is unlike [what] they would receive anywhere else. Patients are treated with respect; they know the staff cares about their planned or unplanned pregnancy situation and will offer hope and help along with free medical services and material items. When a patient chooses to parent, they are offered many recourses to help them be successful.
However, because many people are unable to escape the pressure to choose abortion SPC continues to offer hope, through the post abortion recovery ministry H.E.A.R.T (Healing the Effects of Abortion Related Trauma). SPC offers a safe place to share the abortion experience without fear of judgement, often they experience forgiveness and the healing power of Jesus Christ. I have experienced H.E.A.R.T personally and from that time on, my life was dramatically changed. I found freedom from the shame and guilt I had carried for years after my abortions, and that is why I recommend SPC to people who find themselves in an unplanned pregnancy or to someone who is struggling with the pain and regret after abortion.
Dr. Rich Mantoan, Co-Founder Southland Coalition for Life
The Southside Pregnancy Center is a lifesaving beacon of hope for thousands of young women needing help and guidance during difficult pregnancies and continuing after their babies arrive. As a member of the Southland Coalition for Life and Leader of the Flossmoor 40 Days for life campaign, the Southside Pregnancy center is a true partner and invaluable resource in our quest to save God’s most vulnerable lives.
Thank you Southside Pregnancy Center.
