Statement of Principle

  1. The Pregnancy Care Clinic is an outreach ministry of Jesus Christ through His Church. Therefore, the PCC, embodied in its volunteers, is committed to presenting the Gospel of our Lord to women with crisis pregnancies–both in word and in deed. Commensurate with this purpose, those who labor as PCC board members, directors, and volunteers are expected to know Christ as their Savior and Lord.
  2. The PCC is committed to providing its clients with accurate and complete information about prenatal development and abortion.
  3. The PCC is committed to integrity in dealing with clients, earning their trust, providing promised information and services, and eschewing any form of deception in its corporate advertising or individual conversations.
  4. The PCC is committed to assisting women to carry to term by providing emotional support and practical assistance. Through the provision of God’s people and the community at large, women may face the future with hope and plan constructively for themselves and their babies.
  5. The PCC does not discriminate in providing services because of the race, creed, color, national origin, age, or marital status of its clients.
  6. The PCC does not recommend, provide, or refer for abortion or abortifacients.
  7. The PCC offers assistance free of charge at all times.
  8. The PCC is committed to creating awareness within the local community of the needs of pregnant women and of the fact that abortion only compounds human need rather than resolving it.
  9. The PCC does not recommend, provide, or refer single women for contraceptives. (Married women seeking contraceptive information should be urged to seek counsel, along with their husbands, from their pastor and physician.)
  10. The PCC recognizes the validity of adoption as one alternative to abortion, but is not biased toward adoption when compared to the other life-saving alternatives. Centers are independent of adoption agencies, relating to them in the same manner as to other helpful referral sources. PCCs receive no payments of any kind from these agencies, do not enter into contractual relationships with them, and do not share combined office space. Adoption agencies are not established under the auspices of centers. PCCs neither initiate nor facilitate independent adoptions, though they may refer for independent adoption in states where it is legal.
