Choosing Life in Sin City
First Choice Pregnancy Services is an invaluable resource for pregnant women in Las Vegas, offering free pregnancy testing, options counseling, port-abortion help, ultrasound and more. In 2009, First Choice helped save 2,800 babies from abortion, among the most at any one clinic in the country.
At the time of filming, Pam Caylor had been executive director of First Choice for five years. In that time the clinic has grown to become one of the busiest in the country. One of the women Pam counseled about post-abortion grief, Natasha Washington, is now a volunteer with First Choice. Natasha shares her abortion and life story with young women in the hopes that they won’t go down the same path.
The Birth Control Care Center is located just a few doors down from First Choice. According to its staff, they perform legal abortions up to the 24th week of pregnancy. First Choice has been able to intercept some of the abortion mill’s intended clients. They counsel these women, perform ultrasounds and try to enlighten them with the truth about abortion.
Every day, women across the country face unexpected pregnancies and the decisions that come with them. Clinics like First Choice Pregnancy Services are remarkable resources for women who are unsure of what to do. (Season 5, Episode 9)
