FOREST PARK—The Pregnancy Aid Clinic purchased a former abortion clinic on Forest Parkway and is converting it into a pregnancy resource center that offers women alternatives to abortion. Services are available at the new location now.
The facility, located at 531 Forest Parkway, Forest Park, can be reached by telephone at 404-763-HELP (4357). More information can be found at www.pregnancyaidclinic.com.
The new location is the latest expansion of the Pregnancy Aid Clinic, which also offers its services at a second clinic on S. Atlanta Street in Roswell and with an RV converted into a mobile clinic., which is on the road at least four days a week.
Archbishop Wilton D. Gregory will attend the center’s grand opening on Monday, Oct. 31, at 1 p.m.
Marla Brown, CEO of the nonprofit, said, “So many women come to us just looking for hope. We want to give them that hope plus love, education and support.”
Pregnancy Aid Clinic is a nonprofit organization that exists to serve families and save unborn children from abortion. The only pregnancy resource center in the area that offers a Catholic perspective to those in need, the clinic started in 1984 and serves men and women regardless of financial ability, race, age or religion. Women can receive free pregnancy tests, ultrasounds and education.
The new location was announced at September’s “Evening for Life” fundraising event at the Fox Theatre in Atlanta.
This new facility is about four miles from the Pregnancy Aid Clinic’s site in Hapeville, which served the nonprofit for more than 30 years. The Hapeville location has been closed.
The Forest Park property was once one of the largest abortion clinics in the state, which provided late-term abortions, according to a news release. The abortion clinic is expanding and has moved two buildings away.
By being so close to the abortion provider, the Pregnancy Aid Clinic staff hope to attract women considering abortions by providing free pregnancy tests, ultrasounds, information and education.
