Abortion is a hot topic in our nation, there is no denying that. But to assume that all women facing unexpected pregnancies want an abortion is plainly wrong. These women need a place to go because no woman should ever feel abortion is her only choice. That’s where pregnancy help organizations come in.
Heartbeat International—the nation’s largest association of pregnancy help organizations—equip and resource a vast network of pregnancy resource centers, medical clinics, maternity homes, and non-profit adoption agencies. We’ve helped millions of women, from the first flutter in their belly to after that tiny new human is learning to say “mama.”
Pregnancy centers served close to 2 million people with free services and material assistance valuing over $266 million according to data from 2019. And on average, 99 percent of clients reported having had a positive experience at their local center.
Despite this marked benefit to women, there has been an alarming increase in attacks against life-affirming pregnancy help organizations since the Supreme Court leak occurred on May 2 that indicated a potential overturn of the Roe v. Wade decision.
