ABSTRACT: Pregnancy Resource Centers across the United States offer support to women seeking assistance with unplanned pregnancies. Through taking on the role of client advocate at a center, this nurse learned invaluable lessons about abortion.

Understanding the heart and the mind of a woman facing an unplanned pregnancy can be challenging.

Emily Kerber, BSN, RN, served as the Director of Nursing at the Compassion Pregnancy Clinic in Monterey, California, for three years. She also worked as a hospital nurse in pediatrics and mother-baby. She and her family live in the Washington DC area.
