Southeast Christian Church Behind Louisville Crisis Pregnancy Centers

Check this out, from Every Saturday Morning:

We have two CPCs, one next door and one within one block of the EMW Women’s Surgical Center. Both are called A Woman’s Choice (AWC) and they are operated under the same corporation. The corporation name is A Choice for Life, a corporation formed by Southeast Christian Church. AWC is a separate non-profit corporation affiliated with the church, but they share board members.”

(Emphasis mine.)

Don’t believe it? Check out the church’s website. The crisis pregnancy centers (they evidently have one in Shelby county, too.) are the top two on their list of “secondary community partners.”

For those of you who don’t know, Southeast Christian Church is the largest mega-church in the state of Kentucky. As of 2010, over 19,000 people are members of Southeast Christian Church.

I wonder how many of them know they support an organization of people who lie, sabotage women’s healthcare, and assault the people who support patients? (Not to mention break the law by blocking access to the women’s clinic.)

Regardless, I doubt many in the general community know–I certainly didn’t, not until the awesome people at Every Saturday Morning enlightened me. This is certainly something Louisvillians need to know. Knowledge is power–and we’ve got to do something.

This is absolutely disgusting. I cannot express how angry this makes me. I’ve long been disgusted by the way that mega-churches use their wealth (expensive facilities, luxuries for members, mind-blowing shit like a 200-acre country retreat…) but to wallow in luxury while also sending thugs to harass and assault women and the escorts? I wonder if one could ever come up with a better example of modern-day Pharisees than this.
