Pastor Joseph Parker, author of "A Pastor's Notes: God Calls the Church to Stand Boldly for Life" and host of "The Hour of Intercession" on American Family Radio, says while churches do a lot, they need to do more to support local pro-life pregnancy centers.

"I recently had a chance to speak with the staff of one of the busiest pregnancy centers in the state of Mississippi," Pastor Parker shares. "They recently found out that they had in their immediate community somewhere around 500 and something churches. And I asked them what kind of support they were getting from the local church, and sadly, this staff person kind of chuckled. They said they get support from 13 churches."

Parker, Joseph (Urban Family Talk)Parker says a good number of churches do not know much about pro-life pregnancy centers and what they do for their community.

"Churches could easily help to give lots of diapers to pregnancy clinics, baby items which normally they give away for free," the pastor suggests. "Every pregnancy clinic I've ever known of is always giving all these services for free, no charge at all."

He adds that a church could help raise money to fund sonograms, which help clinics save the lives of preborn babies who might otherwise be terminated.
