The Guadalupe Medical Center will be located in an area that has 10 abortion facilities. Therefore, our center will be an oasis of life in the midst of a desert of death,” Verástegui continued….

The “special focus” of the center will be to “restor[e] honor and dignity to Latinos,” according to the statement. More from the release:

I checked with organizers, and they’re developing an English version of the website now, but it isn’t ready.
I also asked about making donations. Do that here. Instructions for mailing or wiring checks is in Spanish but can be figured out. The “Donate” button for online giving is in English!
carla and eduardo.JPGI don’t know the others but think the world of Eduardo, Jason, Abby, and Nick and so appreciate their heart for pregnant mothers and preborn babies.
What a great idea to open this life-giving medical center in the heart of L.A., surrounded by death.
