TNN’s Founder Reflects Upon The Meaning of Practical Compassion
TNN’s Founding Philosophy:
“The moral and practical responsibility to decide what is best cannot be assumed by any other person or organization ... no matter how caring or well-intentioned. The responsibility lies with the mother.”
~ Mary Cunningham Agee
The absence of real choice is of particular concern because it is known that the single most significant influence on both the speed and degree of recovery from any life crisis is a person's ability to regain control over one's life.
“The Nurturing Network doesn’t just talk about supporting women experiencing a crisis pregnancy; it actually does it. It helps one mother and one baby at a time . . . one family at a time . . . and is a great benefit and resource to our entire society. The genius of the Nurturing Network is that whether one is pro-choice or pro-life, a person on either side of the issue can totally embrace and support this work
