Alternatives to Abortion

Dr George Isajiw, the pro-life doctor who pickets outside the clinic, counsels two couples who find themselves with crisis pregnancies. Both couples are experiencing financial difficulties, one has been raped and is uncertain if it is her husband's child she is carrying, the other couple are being pressured by a parent to abort.

Dr Isajiw explains the developmental stages of the foetus using plastic models as well as a couple of photos of foetal remains following abortion and goes through the various alternatives to abortion and what help is available.

Dr Isajiw and his wife have counselled hundreds of women and even accomodated six of the women in their own home, including one of the women in this chapter. See Chapter 4
