What happens when pregnancy help centers “win”?
Six women who made courageous choices for life in unexpected pregnancies thanks to community-supported pregnancy help told their stories of courage, sacrifice and love to two dozen U.S. Congress members Thursday afternoon.
The story each woman had to tell is of how she came to be called, “Momma,” as Heartbeat International took moms and babies up Capitol Hill for its 14th Babies Go to Congress.
One mom, Teka Brown, flew in with her 7-year-old daughter, Tailor, from Okinawa, Japan, where her husband and family are stationed with the U.S. Marines.
A generous grant from one of our supporting organizations has allowed us to use roadside media in Oregon to reach out to young women in crisis pregnancies. A dedicated team of volunteers have installed 14 - 4'x8' signs throughout the state of Oregon that are on highly traveled roadways ranging from as north as Portland, as Southwest as Philomath and East as Juntura. These signs direct a young women who might be pregnant and scared to www.StandUpGirl.com for hope and encouragement and a friendly listener to provide support and resources.
