Women must be presented with alternatives to abortion.

There are alternatives to abortion available to women. These must be presented at the abortion site to each woman/couple. There is much support available to women choosing to carry their baby to term. Women must be advised of these alternatives and the help available to them. They need to know that they are not alone. It is a matter of conscience that the providers advise their clients of their alternatives. Visits to an abortion clinic need not always end in abortion if the staff truly cares about the women who come there.
