Laura Strietmann, the director of a Cincinnati crisis pregnancy centre, calls abortion “the issue that is shaping our country,” and said the challenge for pro-lifers is to get everyone “to respect life again.”

In her work, she hears the stories of women’s pain and sees pregnant women who “are hungry for the truth about abortion,” she said.

“When they come in the door, we need to love them and tell them the truth,” that abortion is taking a life, she added.

Strietmann believes no woman really wants to have an abortion, but many feel they have no other choice.
