“My daughter would not be here today if I hadn’t gone to Desert Rose Women's Center when I was considering abortion.”

Our Mission . . .

Desert Rose Women’s Center provides practical, emotional and spiritual support to teenage girls, women and men facing difficult pregnancy and parenting decisions.

Our Vision . . .

Our vision is to uphold the sanctity of human life by showing the love of God to bless those in our community facing pregnancy, parenting and post-abortion concerns.

What We Do

The collective efforts of staff members, volunteers, and donors allow Desert Rose Women’s Center of Santa Fe/Espanola to save lives from abortion and to help women and men live the abundant livesGod planned for them. Through parenting classes, we help mothers and fathers raise Godly, happy children and to also cement and strengthen the family unit. It is a gift to minister to those in need of hope and help; your prayers coupled with the faithful financial support of many allow us to fight every day on the front lines of the war against abortion as God directs us. YOU share the victory of every decision that is made for life and every heart that is won for Christ! Thank you for your support. We would love the opportunity to meet you in person and give you a tour of the Center.  Please contact us to set that up, 505-490-1380.

Why We Do It

We are pro-woman

We believe that every woman has the right to make the choice that she believes is right for her and her baby. To do so, she needs to have all the information about all her options. A choice without information is no choice at all.

We are pro-baby

We believe that every unborn child is created in the image and likeness of God. We believe in the humanity and rights of the unborn.

James 1:27 says “Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.” An orphan today is the helpless, vulnerable child in the womb who is being considered for abortion thereby having neither mother nor father to protect them. And today a widow can be considered the single woman who has to make a life and death decision about her baby on her own without support of the father (and sometimes even being pressured by the baby’s father to abort the child).

  • Statistics from the Guttmacher Institute  show the following:
    • Approximately 862,320 abortions occurred in the United States in 2017. This represents an abortion rate of 13.5 abortions per 1,000 women of reproductive age (15–44).
    • 4,620 abortions were provided in New Mexico in 2017.
    • There was a no change in the abortion rate in New Mexico between 2014 and 2017, from 11.7 to 11.7 abortions per 1,000 women of reproductive age.
    • The abortion rate in the United States stands at 45%.
  • Two-thirds of America’s abortions are obtained by those with a Christian affiliation (43% of women identify themselves as Protestant and 27% identify themselves as Catholic). “Why Prolife?” by Randy Alcorn

18% of all U.S. abortions are performed on women who identify themselves as born again or evangelical Christians. “Why Prolife?” by Randy Alcorn

Our Services

We offer a safe, confidential environment for women and men to safely explore their pregnancy options and receive accurate medical information.

Our strive to reach women and men facing an unplanned pregnancy who are considering abortion. We minister to them with grace and dignity, seeking to eliminate the crisis without eliminating the baby.
