At Rockville Women’s Center, we believe that most women do not want to have an abortion but feel as though it is their only option. We seek to provide women with information and support in a professional, medical setting to empower them to choose life. If a woman feels support and security, she may be more open to choosing to have her baby. Our mission is to empower abortion-vulnerable women to embrace life-affirming decisions.
Rockville Women’s Center is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit institution. A PDF copy of our latest Form 990 can be downloaded here.
Each woman receives a free pregnancy test and is guided through her three options: abortion, adoption and parenting. She receives accurate information that includes all risks and hardships associated with each option to help her make an informed decision. She is also offered an opportunity to talk about faith and hear the Gospel.
A woman with a positive pregnancy test receives a sonogram and STD testing. These additional services provide her with critical information about the viability of her pregnancy, and the associated spiritual, emotional, and physical risks associated with an abortion.
When a woman makes a decision to parent her child, she has the opportunity to participate in our Effective Parenting Program (EPP). EPP offer classes from the second trimester of pregnancy though parenting of young children. Topics include pregnancy health, childbirth, caring for infants and discipline. EPP also offers one-on-one parent mentorship.
RWC also provides pregnancy verification for pregnant women who need the referral to obtain health insurance from Montgomery County, MD.
For a woman who has already experienced an abortion, RWC offers one-on-one post abortion counseling. Trained lay counselors walk with her through an 8-week Bible study that focuses on God’s complete forgiveness and healing restoration following an abortion..
