Catherine Ewers started Birthright during 1979 in a garage behind the rectory at St. Jude's Shine in Southcrest. Catherine's philosphy was that every women has the right to have her pregnancy be a joyful time in her life. And, every child has the right to live. Seeking to expand on what she started with Birthright become Birthline of San Diego County in 1990 with centers in Clairemont and Chula Vista. In 1988 she was among six counselors from Birthright to be honored at the White House by President Regan during a meeting with prolife organizations. My 20+ years as a volunteer has seen amazing growth as Birthlne continues with inspired volunteers who counsel mothers with children who need clothng, food, diapers, formula, and resource references that include food sources, housing, medical, child care, legal, etc. Imagine the emotion when a mother places her baby in a volunteer's arms and says, "Thank you for helping me keep my baby!"
