Every morning on the way to work I drive past a billboard that is almost hidden in the trees next to a refinery. It doesn’t say much, just the name of the foundation, its website and a statement that it doesn’t matter if you are pro-life or pro-choice.
So today I checked it out. Here’s it’s dedication:
The Stacie Zallie Foundation and the Post-Abortion Portal are dedicated to our daughter Stacie Zallie. At age 20 our daughter, for reasons known only to her, underwent an abortion. She never revealed her situation or solution to her family the people whose love and emotional support she needed so desperately. Shortly after the abortion she asked for psychiatric help, she ended therapy after only 3 months. Not long after her 21st birthday, she took her own life…
In her memory, The Stacie Zallie Foundation and Post-Abortion Portal provides information and resources to anyone grieving or in pain as the result of an abortion.
No judgement. No shame. Just the love and care you deserve.
I happen to be pro-life and a parent so I support the mission of this foundation. It’s a shame that an organization like this needs to be around given the amount of resources spent by both sides of this issue, but I’m glad it is.
