Over 800,000 Lives Saved by PRCs in Five Years

In the past five recorded years (2016-2020), over 800,000 unborn children were saved from abortion by pregnancy resource centers (PRCs).

This information comes from a new report by the Charlotte Lozier Institute.

“Approximately 3,000 [pregnancy help centers] PHCs form the foundation for a network of pregnancy help including adoption agencies, maternity housing, Alternatives to Abortion state funding programs, newer state-level initiatives like Her PLAN (Pregnancy and Life Assistance Network) and more,” The Charlotte Lozier Institute said in a press release.

The group estimates that a total of 828,131 unborn lives were saved between the years 2016 and 2020. It came to this number by totaling the abortion-vulnerable and abortion-minded women who received services from clinics and later gave birth rather than having abortions.

The report goes on to break down how ultrasound viewing increases the chance that an abortion-vulnerable or abortion-minded woman chooses life. These statistics show how this likelihood increases by up to 10% when the child's father is present.

Finally, the Charlotte Lozier Institute's report includes statistics from the Abortion Pill Rescue Network showing that an increasing number of women are choosing to attempt abortion pill reversal. A woman can attempt to reverse the effects of the first drug in the abortion pill regimen (mifepristone) by taking progesterone. If attempted within 72 hours after the woman takes mifepristone, taking progesterone orally has a 68% success rate of saving the child.
