NASHVILLE (BP) -- When a woman walks into the medical clinic operated by Agape House in northwest Tennessee, she won't find evangelism tracts or Bibles in the waiting room. While she waits nervously to have an ultrasound to confirm her pregnancy, she won't be judged regardless of her circumstances. And if she tells the clinic staff that she's considering having an abortion, she will be given all the information she needs about her child, but won't be pressured into a decision.
Agape House is one of thousands of pro-life organizations throughout the country on the front lines of elevating the sanctity of human life.

I remember knowing at that time that my faith was in crisis. Though I grew up going to church, I realized that I didn't have a true relationship with God, and I wasn't really sure what to do about it. I had enough trouble with human relationships; how was I supposed to have one with someone I couldn't even see?
