PCC-affiliated centres do not provide or arrange for abortions; this is clearly stated before a client receives services. There are two reasons for this:

(1) We are faith-based, which does not prevent us from giving factual information about abortion, but due to our beliefs, we cannot assist in arranging for abortions;

(2) Some women seek support after an abortion, and centres want to be a safe place for women to work through any negative emotions they may experience after an abortion – if a centre was part of the abortion process, it may no longer be viewed as a safe place for a healing and recovery journey.
