Raleigh, North Carolina, United States
Gateway is a local Christ-centered ministry driven by a life-transforming mission: empowering women to choose LIFE for themselves and their unborn children.
Since 1973, the year the Supreme Court issued the Roe vs. Wade decision legalizing abortion, over 60 million abortions have been performed in the United States. In North Carolina, a woman can choose abortion up to 20 weeks if performed in a clinic and at any time with restrictions in a hospital. In 2016, there were 6,941 abortions performed in Wake County. That is almost one every hour of every day.
Unfortunately, choosing abortion has become acceptable. Pregnant women are influenced by family, friends, finances, and the father of the baby. At Gateway, we believe that life begins at conception and that it is ordained by God. Established in 1984, Gateway is rooted in the love of Jesus Christ and all our services are provided in a relevant, loving, relational, and nonjudgmental atmosphere. Our country has ruled that women have the choice to terminate pregnancies at will. We provide services so that the men and women we serve can choose well. A significant percentage of abortion-determined women change their minds and choose LIFE at Gateway.
Gateway’s initiative, LIFE forward 2018, is focusing heavily on empowering abortion-determined women to choose LIFE and helping build a sustainable, thriving life for the mother and her unborn baby. A new medical partnership with the Christian medical non-profit, Neighbor Health, is the first step in providing a medical pipeline of prenatal, maternal and infant care for low-income mothers-to-be.
Pray that the staff of Gateway will continue positively impact women in the Triangle area.
