CRISIS PREGNANCY CENTERS
Is Filling the Void of an Absent Parent Possible?
Single parenting can be hard—especially when it means your child has to miss out on things that would normally happen with the absent mother or father. When your kids’ friends go on father-son camping trips or mother-daughter banquets and yours has to stay home, it can be difficult to know how to fill the void.
But one Texas mom recently decided not to let her single-parent status stop her son from participating in a ‘Donuts with Dad’ event. According to “Yevette Vasquez of Fort Worth dressed liked a dad — with a baseball cap, plaid shirt, fake mustache and a dash of cologne — so her son, Elijah, wouldn’t miss out on the event. ’Yeah, it’s the first time I’ve dressed as a man,’ Vasquez laughingly told CNN. ‘We’re going to remember this forever.’ She posted the pictures of her dad getup on Facebook, and it’s been a viral hit, shared thousands of times.”
How should single parents handle moments like these? Focus’ Executive Director of Parenting Danny Huerta can speak to single parents about helping their children cope with the absence of a mother or father, especially when it comes to special events in their lives.
What Are Crisis Pregnancy Cnters?
Planned Parenthood and abortion advocates like to bash pregnancy care centers calling them “fake clinics run by people who are anti-abortion” and suggesting PRCs “have a history of giving women wrong, biased information to scare them into not having abortions.” Unfortunately, that’s the narrative that often finds its way into media coverage of PRCs. But are these allegations really the case?
Many people – including people who may need them – may not be aware of all the good these centers do. Given some of the recent media hit pieces on pregnancy resource centers from opponents, your listeners would love to hear from Kelly Rosati, Focus’ vice president of community outreach, on the truth about what pregnancy resource centers do.
