When we received Sharon’s story, we were overwhelmed with joy. Stories like Sharon’s (below) are only possible with your continued support.
Sharon’s story is one of 260 lives we celebrate during this year’s pandemic.
While businesses and churches were shut down due to COVID-19, abortion clinics in Pennsylvania remained open. In response, Morning Star took swift action to consolidate our staff in Harrisburg to provide vital, life-saving services to vulnerable women. Morning Star was able to provide and support Sharon’s daughter with three medical services appointments, which included essential ultrasounds and counseling. Had Morning Star closed like many pregnancy centers, Sharon’s daughter and her child would have been in grave danger.
Women, like Sharon’s daughter, were also close to our hearts when we chose our new location in the city of Harrisburg. Sharon’s story conveys the importance of providing compassionate, non-judgemental, and confidential counseling. It is such a blessing that our new building allows us to counsel 700 additional women each year. And, like Sharon’s daughter, many of our mothers need more than one ultrasound appointment before making their life-saving decision. Morning Star’s new clinic building provides double the ultrasound examination rooms, allowing us to increase ultrasounds by 1,000 each year. The significance of this number is astounding since we know an ultrasound is a window into the womb, allowing a mother to see her child for the first time; and to continue to see her baby grow with each ultrasound she receives.
On November 16 our new Harrisburg office opened its doors expanding our reach in the community! This will allow us to save even more hearts and lives, like Sharon’s daughter and grandbaby.
Sharon’s grandbaby was not planned or expected, but will forever change the lives of Sharon’s family and the grateful adoptive parents. What an awesome gift Life is.
On a typical day Morning Star clinics provide pregnancy testing, ultrasound exams, abortion education and options counseling, STD testing and treatment, material assistance like diapers, formula and clothing, and community referrals. We do all this at an average daily cost of $1,307.
By sponsoring a day of Morning Star operations with a donation of $1,307, you can give the Gift of Life this holiday season. Every woman who walks through our doors will receive life-affirming and empowering services that day, through your generosity.
One of the most awesome gifts you could give to that special loved one this Christmas is a signed “Sponsor A Day” certificate.
If you wish, your loved one’s name can be recognized on Morning Star’s Facebook post and website in celebration.
Or perhaps you can support a young woman like Sharon’s daughter, who needs three ultrasounds before she makes a life-giving choice. For $489.90, you can provide these essential services and give the Gift of Life to a precious baby this Christmas.
For $163.30, you can provide a young woman who is considering abortion with a single medical services appointment. This visit includes pregnancy testing, confidential options counseling,
and a life-altering ultrasound exam.
Looking back over the trials of 2020, we’ve grown in our appreciation of the precious Gift of Life. We now celebrate the birth of Jesus. And we also celebrate the lives of babies and their mothers who chose Life thanks to YOUR support of this ministry. We could not have made it through this challenging year without your help and God’s grace.
Thank you for all YOU do for Life – it is the greatest gift Morning Star could receive!
