Culture of death out, culture of life in

In 1993, Clarity Clinic was formed in Dubuque to meet the needs of women and girls who carry their babies to term. As a result, the clinic has been highly successful in saving the lives of preborn babies.

Dennis Rima, a spokesman for Clarity Clinic, told American Family Radio personality JJ Jasper that the clinic has experienced so much growth in its programs related to sexual purity, parenting, and post-abortion healing, that additional space is needed to accommodate its influx of clients.

Rima explained that when their lease was due to expire, they located another building to purchase – a Planned Parenthood facility in Dubuque.

According to Rima, they knew such a purchase "would be a big leap of faith financially," but they also knew they could close the abortion facility. Representatives of the abortion provider had stated it would continue to operate and provide services until somebody bought their building.

After a period of prayer, Clarity Clinic board members voted to purchase the building.

"The culture of death that was in this building has been replaced by the culture of life," Rima said. "It was a big stir in this community, and God was glorified and praised through us purchasing this building."

Rima has been an educator for more than three decades and is devoted to protecting the unborn and the born through speaking and education. Among other things, he emcees Clarity Clinic's annual fundraising banquet. Jasper will be the keynote speaker at this year's banquet in October.
