Topeka, KS (LifeNews.com) -- There is no doubt about pro-life factors influencing the 9 percent drop in abortions for the state of Kansas in 2009. The Vitae Foundation believes it also had an influence in the drop in abortions during the last quarter of 2009.
Vitae ran 105 billboards directing pregnant women to five different pregnancy centers in the greater Kansas City area offering free help. The majority of the billboards were in Johnson and Wyandotte Counties. They ran from October through January, 2010.
“Vitae worked closely with area pregnancy help centers, business, civic and church communities to get pregnant women the help they need,” Anne Carmichael, Vitae’s Vice President, stated. “We knew it was going to be a tremendous campaign when women were canceling their abortion appointments and choosing life!” Full story.
