Echoz Gives Us Their Thoughts On National Abortion Decline

GREAT FALLS -

 

Look's like there has been a major change in the medical landscape when it comes to abortion. According to a USA Today, our national abortion rate has dropped lower than ever before. A recent study also showed a 13% decline between 2008 and 2011.

Some are citing this change as a result of the recession and highly affective birth control, but Bonnie Mitchell, the CEO Of Echo's Pregnancy Care Center, says there is one other we should be aware of, "The tireless and important work of pregnancy medical clinics, such as Echos Pregnancy Care Center, across the U.S.. And just taking the time to sit with these men and women making this very important decision and giving them accurate information."

But no matter what the cause, there is definitely change in the air. Montana, like the rest of the nation, was no exception. From 1990 to 2011 we have reached nearly a 28%.decline in abortions. And with increased court rulings and state laws, Bonnie expects it will only go lower.

Regardless of this national rate, she says Echoz will always be there to help. This non-profit prides themselves on giving information, education and support to empower patients to make choice that is best for them. Bonnie explains, "Women tell us they need three things: information that they can use to make an informed decision, unpressured time to make that decision, and resources to help them carry out that decision."

If you or a loved one are facing an unplanned or difficult pregnancy, Echos will gladly offer their help. For those of you would like to reach them, their number is 727-1850.
