We are delighted to honor Woman's New Life Center and Access Pregnancy & Referral Centers as the recipients of the 2012 Proudly Pro-Life Award.
Founded in October 2001 by Susan Mire, Woman's New Life Center (WNLC) serves pregnant women and families in need of assistance by providing free pregnancy tests, professional counseling, pre-natal care, post-abortion retreats, parenting class to its clients. Formerly located in Uptown New Orleans prior to Katrina, WNLC is located next door to the state's largest abortion facility in Metairie.
ACCESS Pregnancy & Referral Center (ACCESS) has served pregnant women in the greater New Orleans area since the early 1970s. Today, ACCESS operates four clinics in the New Orleans area, giving it the capacity to provide easily accessible care to those who need assistance. ACCESS provides free pregnancy tests, ultrasounds, counseling, case management classes, educational classes and material support for its clients. ACCESS is a Catholic Charities program of the Archdiocese of New Orleans.
Both of these centers have provided exceptional care and support to pregnant women in our community for years. Because of these centers' life-saving efforts, countless children have been saved from abortion. These centers are at the heart of the pro-life movement in New Orleans, and we are pleased to have the opportunity to recognize them at the Proudly Pro-Life Dinner.
Even if you cannot join us, you can still purchase a ticket and help our efforts!
