Mid Cities Pregnancy Center
What We Do
The Mid Cities Pregnancy Center is here to help women find answers. For those facing an unplanned pregnancy, we offer an objective view that close friends and family may not be able to give. Women owe it to themselves to get the facts; we owe it to them to share the truth. We provide accurate education on abortion and alternatives, and our services are totally free and completely confidential.
Our center works to champion life in our community; we do this by encouraging abstinence in youths and singles, sharing accurate education to those faced with unplanned pregnancy, illuminating decision-making through the medical technology of ultrasound, and helping men and women heal who have been impacted by past abortions.
We began performing free ultrasounds in 1999 under the license and supervision of our Medical Director, Dr. Donna Kolar, OB/GYN. A grant from Focus on the Family gave us our first ultrasound equipment to begin this life-saving program. Since that time, we have administered more than 9,400 free sonograms, showing our clients a “window to the womb” and the life within. After hearing the heartbeat and seeing their baby on the sonogram, 96 percent of our clients make a choice for life.
Our services have expanded from peer-counseling and free pregnancy tests to include medical services, parenting classes, sexual integrity programs, sexual abuse support groups, post-abortion counseling, and discipleship programs for new believers.
Why We Do It
According to the Guttmacher Institute, at least half of all American women will experience an unintended pregnancy by age 45. At current rates, about one-third will have had an abortion by that age. Fifty percent of those obtaining those abortions are younger just 25 years old or younger – teenagers make up 17 percent. Seventy percent of women obtaining abortions identify themselves as Christian. Women who are single and have never been married obtain two-thirds of all abortions. Since abortion was declared legal in 1973, approximately 53 million abortions have been performed, a number nearly twice the current population of Texas. In the metroplex area, it is estimated that 20,000 abortions are performed each year.
In addition to the lives lost to abortion each year, many women carry the pain of that choice with them, often unspoken and unknown. Abortion can have tremendous spiritual, emotional and mental consequences not only for women who choose to terminate, but their partners, families and other children.
In the midst of this nationwide abortion crisis, we are a light of hope to women in their critical hour. We show them the truth about abortion, the alternatives of parenting and adoption, and we help them make a decision they can live with. Our ministry exists because of God’s grace, and we share that grace in each peer- counseling and ultrasound appointment. We compassionately offer the hope of the gospel as we affirm life in our centers. Since opening its doors, the center has welcomed more than 73,000 women, and nearly 19,000 babies have been born as a result of the truth and support shared inside. We have seen an average of 86 women a year place their faith in Christ at our center, choosing life for themselves as well as for their unborn children.
The reality of abortion is dark, but our clinic illuminates hope for each woman who would choose life if she knew the truth or had just one person supporting her. Your support allows us to share the hope of Christ, compassionate care and material assistance to women when they desperately need help.
