What distinguished Falwell from other anti-reproductive rights clergy was how he and his church put their money where his mouth was. For a time in the 1980s, any woman anywhere who was considering the termination of a pregnancy had an open invitation to come to Thomas Road Church -- travel expenses paid -- and live with one of the families of the church at no cost to her.
She could attend school if she was of that age, be afforded prenatal care and aided in the legal matter of giving up her child for adoption. When the woman's post-natal care was completed, she was given transportation home.
