She accepted the position of Executive Director at Abigail Women's Center.
Betty has the passion--
to help women become good, loving Mothers.
to aid in restoring the home.
to help men become good husbands and Fathers.
to help parents and children to enjoy all that God has in store for them.
Making a Stand for Life
in the Illinois Valley
Since 1973, abortion in the United States has been legal in all nine months of pregnancy. Every 20 seconds a baby is killed and a mother is wounded. Abigail Women's Center has been working for life in the Illinois Valley since 1997.
We provide pregnancy services and referrals to women who are in a crisis pregnancy, or in a financial crisis that puts their unborn child at risk.
Abigail Women's Center is now providing limited obstetrical ultrasounds at no cost to the client.
Statistics show that once a mother sees an ultrasound of her unborn child, she is 90% more likely to continue her pregnancy.
