A faith-based pro-life pregnancy center in west Colorado Springs continues to draw pregnant women despite Planned Parenthood Westside’s move last summer to Centennial Boulevard near Fillmore Street, the Catholic Herald reports.
Abortions are performed at Planned Parenthood Westside.
The Old Colorado City Pregnancy Center opened in August 2008 in part to attract pregnant women away from Planned Parenthood Westside, which was a few houses west on West Colorado Boulevard. Read my story on the founding of the pregnancy center here.
“Things are going great,” Life Network executive director Christine Reyes told the Herald. “We’re seeing as many, if not more, clients.”
Reyes hasn’t ruled out that the center will some day move closer to the abortion clinic. But the Old Colorado City facility is serving an important purpose right now. The community, she told the Herald, “still has a need.”
