LAKE CHARLES — Pro-life advocate Rebekah Hagan wanted to feel relief after swallowing an abortion pill in 2013 to make her unplanned pregnancy “go away.” Instead, all she felt was instant regret. What happened next would eventually lead her on a path of mercy, hope, and compassion for other young women who think abortion is their only option. 

“We should be shining lamps, giving light to all around us.” 
 —  Venerable Mother Catherine McAuley, Foundress of Religious Sisters of Mercy of Alma, Michigan in 1973

“I had a lot of animosity in my heart, but after I met the Sisters, they helped restore my faith,” Theresa Richard said about her friendship with the Religious Sisters of Mercy of Alma, Michigan. “Now, when I walk in the neighborhood, if I see Sister Miriam, she will stop and listen. Everyone in the community loves them.”
