Ultrasound utilizes the gifts of qualified and trained medical personnel from our area to provide a “window to the womb” to our clients. This powerful tool helps clients to bond with the child they are carrying by putting a visual image with the message of life they have already received from their client advocate. When she sees baby’s heartbeat the message is driven home that there are TWO lives at stake: mom’s AND her baby’s.
Post Abortion Care
The study “Forgiven & Set Free” paired with prayer is used help those who have made a past decision to abort. This is a process of communicating God’s love, His forgiveness, and His desire for reconciliation, allowing the client to acknowledge the life that was lost & to walk through the grieving process.
SRA (Sexual Risk Avoidance) Education
The SRA (Sexual Risk Avoidance) Group provides a variety of age appropriate presentations for students based on the concept that abstinence outside of marriage is the only sure way to avoid the risks that come with sexual activity. The presentations are free and are suitable for schools, churches, college groups, and others, and can be formatted to work within a variety of time-frames and settings based on the needs of your organization.
Sexually Transmitted Disease (STD) Testing
The state of Alabama ranks #3 out of the 50 United States for the top two STDs: chlamydia and gonorrhea. Some STDs, if left untreated, can cause infertility. In pregnant women they can also cause birth defects for the babies. We offer this service to female clients so that they can receive treatment and move forward with a healthy pregnancy.
While adoption is not the answer for EVERY client, our client advocates always present adoption as a positive alternative to abortion. Shoals Sav-A-Life doesn’t facilitate adoptions but client’s are provided with referral information to a variety of reputable agencies.
We would like to thank all of the churches that support us in their monthly budget and in our bottle campaign. We are honored by your dedication to this ministry!
