CWN - October 05, 2010

The OSV Daily Take blog draws attention to the inspiring work of pro-life activists Chris and Joan Andrews Bell, whose New Jersey-based Good Counsel Homes have served 5,600 abandoned single mothers and their babies since 1985. Some 800 babies have been born in the homes. The Bells have seven children, six of whom are adopted special-needs children; Mrs. Bell was renowned for her nonviolent Operation Rescue activism in the 1990s.
