Sidewalk Counseling: Do’s & Don’ts

Sidewalk Counseling consists of two or more counselors that stand on the sidewalks outside the clinics and handout literature to those considering abortion. We attempt to discuss abortion alternatives and give them Christian advice. It is a ministry for anyone with a heart for the unborn.
