Sex and the City

At The Weekly Standard, Eve Tushnet writes about her experience volunteering at the Capitol Hill Pregnancy Center, an anti-abortion Christian ministry in Washington, D.C. While working with impoverished women, Tushnet was surprised at “how often our clients were not considering abortion” and the importance of connecting them to the right resources. “When I started counseling I saw our work as serving the mother-child dyad. I wanted to help the woman and save her unborn baby,” she writes. “Over time I began to see more and more the frayed communal fabric in which these women and children are wrapped … Now I see my job primarily as helping women find people in their own communities who can give them support, advice, and most of all the hope that married love is possible.”
