Golf “fore” LIFE!

Blake RobbinsCommunity, Local Spotlight, Uncategorized

Since 1993, Options Pregnancy Clinic has been offering women experiencing unplanned pregnancies free and confidential services, such as mentoring, ultrasounds, and STI testing. In recognition that many women feel unprepared for motherhood, the clinic aims to offer women the information required to make life-affirming choices in the face of an unexpected or mistimed pregnancy.

The mission of the clinic reflects a pro-life stance, grounded in Christian beliefs about the value of the human person, while its method reveals a profound respect for the individual woman. The clinic is not coercive–its workers do not attempt to talk a woman into one option over another. Instead, all of its efforts are oriented to informing pregnant women about all of their options and providing resources and ongoing support for those who decide to parent or pursue adoption.

Lain found a *friend* along the way!

Always eager to support organizations that look to help the people of this community, Blake jumped at the opportunity to participate in Options Pregnancy Clinic’s Golf “Fore” LIFE fundraiser this last Sunday. After signing up to sponsor a group at the event, and enlisting the help of a few of his friends, including The Robbins Group’s Taylor Clark and Lain McCanless, Blake enjoyed a round at the Branson Hills Golf Club in support of the clinic.

“I’ve always loved the mission and heart behind the Options Pregnancy Clinic, and of course golf is a blast, so this was a great opportunity to combine those things,” said an enthusiastic Lain McCanless. “The day started off with a presentation about what Options is all about, and that really set the stage for the rest of the day. It was so much more than a game. It was an opportunity for our community to come together to support their women and the restoration of families.”
