Letters to the Editor

Pregnancy Care is here to help

Let me begin with a heartfelt thank you to all the people on Whidbey Island and surrounding communities who support Pregnancy Care Clinic. With your generous sacrifice for over 25 years we, as a community, have provided much needed support to women and their families. I emphasize the word community because it is the community we are funded by. Pregnancy Care Clinic has never and will never accept government funding.

PCC offers all services completely free and confidential to anyone who has a need for its services. Pregnancy testing and limited ultrasounds are provided and can be used as proof of pregnancy for DSHS and WIC services. Baby food, formula, diapers, baby clothing and maternity clothing are also available. We encourage moms and dads to be the best possible parents by providing parenting classes.

New cribs and car seats can be earned by taking classes. “Boutique Bucks” are earned with each free parenting class and are used to “shop” for new and gently used items in the beautiful Mommy and Me Boutique. The Quest for Authentic Manhood series is offered for men. We also offer a post-abortion study for women who express a need for emotional and spiritual healing from the after effects of abortion.

Pregnancy Care Clinic is a life-affirming Christian organization. Therefore, we do not refer for abortion. We believe every life in the womb is created by God, in the image of God, and valued by God. (Genesis 1:26)

This year to date PCC has served over 1,000 individual clients with 1,691 appointments. Thank you again for helping our women and their families during these difficult times.

Pregnancy Care Clinic has two locations on Whidbey Island. The Oak Harbor clinic is located at 670 SE Midway Blvd. and is open Monday through Saturday. The Langley clinic is located at 503 Cascade Ave. in the CMA church lower level floor and is open Wednesdays and Thursdays. Call 675-2096 for Oak Harbor, or 360-221-2909 for Langley. Walk-ins are always welcome.
