The First Nine Months

Fetus is a Latin word for "young one." Whenever faced with an important medical decision, women deserve full and accurate information to guide them in making an informed choice. This is just one page from a booklet called The First 9 Months, approved by the Physicians Resource Council, that Focus provides free of charge to pregnancy centers - because women have a right to know the facts.

US Government Imposes Unjust Rules on Catholic Institutions

Archbishop Myers is joining with other bishops in the United States to speak out against soon-to-be-implemented rules from the US Department of Health and Human Services that will force Catholic institutions to purchase and offer health insurance coverages that are in conflict with Catholic teaching.

These rules mark the first time in this nation's history that the US Government has cast aside the Protection of Religious Freedom guaranteed to Catholic Americans under the First Amendment of the US Constitution.

The "Choose Life" License Plate -- all across our nation -- is a wonderful way to raise public awareness and much needed funding to support the positive choices of Life, Adoption and Safe Havens for unwanted pregnancies and newborns.

Administered by The Children First Foundation, the tax-deductible annual $25 membership renewal fee for each "Choose Life" License Plate goes toward helping support every Pregnancy Resource Center, Maternity Home and non-profit Baby Safe Haven Program located within the Tri-State Area according to the state in which the plate is purchased. Additional donations to CFF will help fund over 200 pro-life agencies in all three states that so generously provide free, life-saving services, including counseling, temporary housing, utility bills, food, transportation, maternity clothing, and uncovered medical expenses.
