Yesterday in Sioux CIty, IA the Fleet for Little Feet mobile pregnancy care center reached out to women considering an abortion as they entered the Sioux City Planned Parenthood. The Fleet partnered with local sidewalk counselors to help these women understand the truth about the life growing inside of them. The Fleet for Little Feet offered free pregnancy testing, ultrasounds, and options counseling to these women. Testing for sexually transmitted diseasees was also available for a fee.

Statistics show that 64% of American women reported they felt pressured by others to abort and 84% said they did not receive adequate counseling, according to Medical Science Monitor, 2004. The Fleet offers medically accurate information about abortion and the positive alternatives to abortion - parenting and adoption; accurate information is provided to women about the potential harmful effects, both physically and emotionally, if they undergo an abortion; and support is provided to women who chose life for their unborn child.

It is the desire of local citizens and the Fleet that women know abortion isn’t the only option for their pregnancy. Renae, a post abortive women from Iowa stated, “I support the work of the Fleet for Little Feet because I have had an abortion. I thought abortion was the only option for me but the pain, regret and shame were overwhelming. If someone would have been there to tell me the truth about the life growing inside me and provided support for me during that challenging time, I would not have chosen abortion.

It is because of women like Renae that the Fleet for Little Feet actively travels the state of South Dakota and now Iowa to support women facing an unexpected pregnancy. The FFLF offers free pregnancy testing, limited ultrasound, options counseling, material support, local referrals and testing for sexually transmitted diseasees (for a fee).
