This 1 ½ hour online training is on supporting families who receive a prenatal diagnosis of a disability or lethal condition. As you may know, the abortion rate for these kinds of pregnancies is alarmingly high…up to 90% of mothers ultimately make a choice against life, including even Catholic women.
A recent study showed that when support is provided to the expectant parents, the abortion rate drops significantly. We know from experience that a priest, deacon, or pastoral staff member is generally the first person sought out following such a diagnosis.
But oftentimes clergy and staff feel ill equipped to counsel these families and counter the technical and compelling language of the medical community. This webinar will equip them to respond to these needs, and will provide an online toolkit with free downloadable resources with a faith-based framework.”
