Who We Are
Cherish-life.com is a grassroots operation. We are a small but determined band of women who, twice a week, minister to women seeking an abortion at a Planned Parenthood in Southern California.
We provide alternate resources, love, prayers, an empathetic ear, Kleenex and anything else that might incline a woman to have a change of heart and keep her baby and her peace of mind.
We have spoken with hundreds of women and heard their stories. You might be surprised to hear that convenience is the main reason for abortion – not rape, incest or severe illness of the mother.
We often hear comments like “I need to finish school first” or “I have two kids already” or “My boyfriend is cheating on me and I don’t want this kid.” Mothers will bring in their teenage daughters and tell us that they are too young to have kids.
Sadly, people have been conditioned to think of abortion as their first option when faced with an unplanned pregnancy. We want to do our part to change that kind of thinking, to empower women with better choices.
