Edmonton Pregnancy Crisis Centre very successful
The Edmonton Pregnancy Crisis Centre, run by Co-Workers to Human Life has had a very successful first year of operation. The centre which opened in November of 1984, has had over 500 clients and believes to be responsible for changing the minds of 80 per cent of the people who came requesting help to obtain an abortion. January 1985, figures provide an indication of the Centre’s good work:
No. of clients 63
No. of positive tests 29
No. of negative tests 34
No. of pro-abortion before counseling 30
No. of pro-abortion after counseling 14
Also, on January 20, a baby girl (to have been aborted in 1985) was born. Much to the organization’s relief, Revenue Canada informed Co-Workers for Human Life that their crisis Centre would be granted tax-exempt status and be able to issue tax receipts for donations. The Centre needs volunteers and financial help.
