Sometimes, life seems unbearable. Sometimes, the idea of one more day is too much. And sometimes, the thought of enduring that day with a new baby to support is simply inconceivable.

Tuesday at 6:30 p.m. in the Lee University Dixon Center, New Hope Pregnancy Care Center will be hosting an event dedicated to those who have been lost through the tragedy of abortion.

The event will feature a short, powerful movie based on true events that considers one woman’s “hopeless” situation and what became of the child she almost denied the opportunity to live.

Her story is unique, but it is not uncommon.

“Abortion is a common experience,” reports a national pro-abortion research group. “At current rates, about one in three American women will have had an abortion by the time she reaches the age of 45.”

Officials at New Hope Pregnancy Care Center in Cleveland don’t believe it has to be that way, and are working to speak the truth, prevent abortion and share the hope of Jesus Christ with those affected by unplanned pregnancy in the Cleveland/Bradley County area.

“Most of the time, pregnant women will choose life for their children if they know they are not alone,” said Tracie Shellhouse, New Hope CEO.

“We are here so they will not be alone. We are here to let them know that their babies’ lives have value, and that their lives have value, too.”

The event, held in recognition of Sanctity of Human Life Month, is free to the public.

Due to the sensitive nature of the topic, some parents may want to consider not bringing children under the age of 12. The film will be followed by a brief message and time of prayer.
