Pregnancy Center Leaders Promote Abortion Alternatives. Target Women in Urban Communities.

Given we know that the baby killers at Planned Parenthood are primarily targeting minority communities for death, it is good to see that those standing against them are increasing their focus in those areas, to abate the slaughter.

Pregnancy Center Leaders Hold Conference to Promote Abortion Alternatives

St. Louis, MO ( — More than 600 leaders of pregnancy centers across the country are preparing for the 36th annual Heartbeat International conference to help each other do a better job of promoting abortion alternatives. Crisis pregnancy centers are credited, along with pro-life laws, with reducing abortion levels in most states.

Some states such as Wisconsin, have seen their abortion levels drops to their lowest point since abortion became legal after the Supreme Court’s 1973 Roe decision.

The event coincides with the 150th anniversary of the Dred Scott decision and points to the growing focus pregnancy centers are placing on reaching women in urban communities.

War. Lynne Jackson, the great-great granddaughter of Dred and Harriet, has been invited to participate in the pregnancy center gathering.

“We are grateful for Lynne’s voice against the landmark abortion decision; she is a great testimony to the spirit of truth and to the most important of all civil rights, the right to life,” Hartshorn said.

Dr. Alveda King, the niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and a new Heartbeat board member, will also participate.

“The forces that have plagued the ?beloved community’ of Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. are still at work,” King said in a statement to “The good news is we are winning. As the heartbeat of America turns back toward the well-being of our weakest members, the pre-born babies, we can truly begin to see a light at the end of the tunnel.”

About 37 percent of abortions are performed on African-American women, though they make up only 12 percent of the population.

Founded in 1971, Heartbeat International is an interdenominational Christian association of more than 1,000 pregnancy resource centers, maternity homes, non-profit adoption agencies, and medical clinics in 47 states and 37 countries.

Heartbeat International also has a Sexual Integrity Program, where they seek to help people stop doing what brings them there in the first place. (Help people stop having sex out of wedlock.) They also leverage this to create opportunities to evangelize.
