Don't Keep Us Tiny
Lisa Hill, Executive Director

August 2021 - Have you ever thought about how you think about charity, or more specifically, charitable organizations?    If you are like most people, your thoughts on charitable organizations might be undermining the very cause that you love.  In his TED Talk, “The Way We Think About Charity is Dead Wrong,” Dan Pallotta  asks the question,...

The Heart of Eden
Lisa Hill, Executive Director

June 2021 - In today’s world, it can be easy to become pessimistic and wonder if there is any good left in humanity.  Recently, we had the privilege of going to Choctaw Road Baptist Church to participate in their missions fair.  As I listened to the representative of each ministry speak, I was impressed and genuinely moved by the hearts of these people.  I was struck by all the good that is going on all around us!  People are seeing a need and doing something about it, such as teaching music to children whose parents are incarcerated or providing summer camps in trailer parks for children who live there.

All Things are Possible!
Lisa Hill, Executive Director

May 2021 - The landmark Supreme Court case, Roe v. Wade, is in the news again. Currently, over 60 anti-abortion bills have been passed all across the United States.  Abortion is a hot topic again.

One of the Bills passed in Mississippi bans abortion after 15 weeks of pregnancy.  The bill has been challenged all the way to the Supreme Court.  The Court has agreed to hear the case which has a good chance of overturning Roe v. Wade. 

In most people’s minds, Roe v. Wade made abortion legal.  While the 1973 ruling did not make abortion legal, it did prevent government restriction on abortion.

Wave Upon Wave
Lisa Hill, Executive Director

March 2021 - Can you feel it? There is a wave moving in this country. If we allow our minds to dwell on it, it can be depressing and downright scary. I am talking about the wave that is widening the path for abortion. The current administration is the most pro-abortion administration in the history of this country. While they have been clear in their stance, they have been somewhat hesitant to admit that they favor abortion up to the baby’s due date. Why? Because that admission is unthinkable to the great majority of this country, and they know it.

As a result of this unfortunate wave, there has never been a greater need for Eden Clinic and others like us. In Tulsa, Planned Parenthood was just given the green light to provide abortions which brings our state’s number of abortion clinics to five. Now is the time for action! Yes, there is a wave that is moving, but the good news is that there is an even greater wave that is also moving, and this one is a tsunami! God is moving in mighty ways in this country, in our state, and at the Eden Clinic. He is not surprised at the current administration, and He is bigger than anything they can bring.

A Life-Changing View
Lindy Jones, MWC Clinic Manager

February 2021 - Graduating High School, going to college, marrying your best friend, the passing of a family member, giving yourself over to the Lord.  All of these milestones are life-changing events.  And, for most of us, finding out we are going to be parents for the first time is an amazing and thrilling life-changing  experience. 

But, for some of our patients that walk through our doors, this is a very scary and mind-numbing time. 

These ladies don’t know what to do, they have no support (or very little), they feel they can not support themselves (let alone a child), they’re in an abusive relationship, they already have many children and feel they can’t support another, or they have been listening to the world telling them they don’t need this right now.  Go ahead and abort because it’s just a clump of cells.
