lifechoices.pngLet’s not forget the littlest victims of Sunday’s deadly tornado in Joplin, MO. From the St. Louis Review:

LifeChoices Medical Clinic and Resource Center, a pro-life pregnancy resource center located in Joplin, is seeking help as the organization reaches out to mothers affected by the May 22 tornado there.

LifeChoices has been visiting moms in shelters and in damaged homes and apartments around the city to assess their needs and offer assistance.

The office of LifeChoices is located several blocks from the tornado damage. None of the staff or volunteers was seriously injured. The office remains open, but is quickly running out of supplies. Items needed include diapers, wipes, pre-mixed formula and infant clothing. The organization also has a Facebook site, with regular updates, at

Monetary donations also can be sent to LifeChoices either online at or by check and mailed to: LifeChoices, 531 E. 7th St., Joplin, Mo., 64801. Donations are tax deductible. Missouri residents and corporations are eligible for an additional 50 percent state income tax credit for donations of $100 or more. Visit for more information.

Pro-life pregnancy care centers in other parts of Missouri are also stepping up and collecting items for LifeChoices to distribute to Joplin moms and babies. Items needed (besides money) include diapers, wipes, pre-mixed formula and newborn clothing.

There are six drop-off spots to leave items that will then be taken directly to LifeChoices – at some point in the future. At the moment, however, no one except emergency personnel are allowed to enter Joplin. The drop-off locations are:

St. Louis – Frank Block at Love Basket – email: or call 636-797-4100
Springfield – Cindi Boston at Pregnancy Care Center – email: or call 417-877-0800
Branson – Jeanie Williams at Options Clinic – email: or call 417-336-5483
