One of my readers wrote the following to me:
Some very distressing news, the Archdiocese closed their ONLY ProLife Center. Yes, Birthing and Care Center of College Park was closed on July 1. The remaining staff was moved to the Archdiocene Pstoral Center in Hyattsville. This is hardly a replacement for the convience, warmth and excellence of the College Park location. This is a terrible blow for Prolife advocates and the Side Walk Counselors. There is no longer an accessable Catholic Walk-In Center that offers birthing and care alternatives to conter act the Abortion propaganda machine.Project Rachel(post-abortion counseling) was also at this Center, which was a wonderful combination of services. Project Rachel has also been moved to the Hyattsville location. Supposedly the Archdiocese wants to move these program to individual parishes. But, really? We had a Center with professionals who performed outstanding, confidental services to a very needy population. Birthing and Care Center, RIP. And I bet you didn't see this in the Catholic Standard.
This was the first that I have heard of this and therefore, I did write to the Archdiocese of Washington DC (firstname.lastname@example.org) asking for a comment. As of this writing, I have not recieved any reply. Should I receive one, I will keep you posted.
