Heartbeat International showed great enthusiasm and interest in helping our life-affirming work in India. They provided us speakers for our virtual annual conference aimed at educating and edifying our Life Care Center staff. The comments following the conference were very positive and there was a keen interest to do more together and learn from the speakers Heartbeat provided.

I am a pro-life grandmother and I believe wholeheartedly in the value of ultrasounds and the abortion pill reversal program to save lives. When people actually see that life, that tiny person, inside themselves it is a real revelation, as is the reaction many feel after they have taken the first step toward killing that life. Heartbeat International is there helping to guide pregnant moms to places that value life and will provide those ultrasounds, a hope of reversing an abortion that is deeply regretted after it has been begun, and support for those
who are able to continue their pregnancy.
Heartbeat Int. is a great communicator, sending out frequent texts and even postcards with inspiring stories of victories in saving lives. Knowing I am supporting a very well-run organization that can so quickly respond to crisis situations where lives are on the line, (both the child’s life and the mom’s emotional life) makes me feel that I really am contributing to this battle against abortion that we are fighting.

This organization helps so many women and children. I was a volunteer at a start-up pregnancy medical clinic and Heartbeat International really supported our mission and our clients. From the Option Line and abortion pill reversal, we were able to provide life saving services to women and children beginning with the first medical appointment which included an ultrasound. Many of the women were without health insurance and had no other option for a medical appointment except Planned Parenthood. We were able to serve those women who felt they were in a crisis pregnancy. Thank you Heartbeat International!

LIFE, "LIFE in JESUS CHRIST" suffers a distinct brutality in pagan and neo-pagan cultures. Unfortunately the world is dominated by such cultures. Yet the Call of Almighty God is clear and strong. Our ministry here in northeast Brasil demands a special attention to women and children whose lives are ignored or actuall despised. We strive to FIND, RECEIVE and ADDRESS their needs.

So many organizations we have sponsored in the past have been a disappointment because I felt to much effort was misplaced. Excessive and glossy mailings or worse phone solicitations by someone reading off a script. With Heartbeat the mailings are encouraging and on occasion we have had a phone call. Not soliciting more but of heartfelt thanks and inquiring if we had specific prayer requests! 5 Stars is not enough to describe how I feel about them!

The Pregnancy Care Center of Wooster, Ohio, has been an affiliate of Heartbeat International, Inc. since 1986. Heartbeat has been a great support to our volunteers, staff and Board Members. Their life-affirming ministry has helped "our" life affirming ministry to exist, prosper and grow. Heartbeat's annual conference, as well as their on-line training and special institutes, offer a wealth of information to our center. The experience gained in attending one of these trainings is priceless. Heartbeat's weekly updates keep us, as a pregnancy center, engaged and present with pro-life oversight. It can sometimes feel like we are "out here - alone and with a target on our back". However, we are not, and are thankful to Heartbeat and all the care given to "us" as we care for others.

Heartbeat International is doing the most important work, rescuing and/or saving the most vulnerable lives. Every child deserves the right to be born and make a contribution to our world, every life is precious. The killing of the unborn must stop. There are many families who would like to adopt but too few babies available. There is a loving home available for every child conceived in our country and no reason for abortion.

I'm a Board member of Heartbeat, but no one should discount my very high view of the organization on that account. Led by very capable, zealous people, Heartbeat is making a big difference in the world of pregnancy help. Its management is thoughtful and professional; its use of funds is careful yet enterprising, and its staff are dedicated to the cause.

The political fight over abortion obscures the reality that most women don't want abortions, and that pregnancy help is the outstanding reason that ratios of abortions to births have been in steady decline since the mid-1980s, so that they are now below the level of 1973, the year of Roe v. Wade. Heartbeat has played a major role in this triumph of life over death, and will continue to do so, after Roe is overturned and states go their own ways.

A wonderful organization dedicated to helping the organizations across the country that empower women to make a pregnancy choice they won't regret. Also, their national online help service, OptionLine, does a great job advising women on pregnancy and abortion, and has given hundreds of thousands of them directions to these pregnancy help centers nearby, each year. Their new Abortion Pill Rescue Network has helped hundreds of women reverse their chemical abortions in the early stage, for which these women are deeply grateful. Growing in its reach, its expertise, and its ambitions, Heartbeat International is a leading organization in the pro-woman, pro-life movement.

Outstanding work that they do. As an example:

Imagine the possibilities a college scholarship can provide for a young mother…

It can open doors and help her achieve big dreams. More than that, it empowers her in her decision to choose life!

That’s what happened to 17-year-old Katy (pictured below left with her baby), who recently graduated high school and was surprised with a college scholarship that’ll help her pursue a career in nursing.

Actress and star of Unplanned, Ashley Bratcher (pictured below right), awarded the Unplanned Movie Scholarship to Katy in partnership with Heartbeat earlier this month.

Once she found out she was pregnant, Katy was almost certain she’d go through with an abortion. But after receiving help from her local pregnancy help center, she courageously chose life and now has a beautiful one-year-old daughter.

Heartbeat International is one of many Christ-centered organizations that embodies loving others from all walks of life. It is my hope that more women connect with organizations that put the sanctity of life first (both mother's and child's) and thereby experience life-changing joy that is only realized after making the difficult decision to bring new life into the world.

Heartbeat International provides much needed tangible support and love to pregnant girls and women who find themselves pregnant unexpectedly. Many chose to have and love their babies even when it's not easy. Many are pressured to abort and endure a lifetime of shame and regret. Heartbeat International provides a lifeline, spiritually and physically to mother and baby. When you face the truth of the facts, abortion is the brutal murder of a precious, innocent unborn child. HI provides the way for mothers to give life and love to unborn children and the resources to guide and help mothers along the way.

Heartbeat International is such a huge blessing. I was able to tell my friend about them when she was facing homelessness and living in a park. Her one year son was going to be taken from her. She called Heartbeat International and they relocated and son to a safe place. She was able to continue getting tested for the Nurse's board to become a CNA. Now, she is a CNA plus has two jobs, a car, her own home, and her son has been thriving with his mother. Heartbeat saved her life and family. We will forever be grateful for it.
I was also happy to be able to give Heartbeat's Option Line to a sixteen year old girl riding a bus that was just kicked out her house because her parents found out she was pregnant. She was about to be convinced by a predator to stay with him at a hotel. She decided to go to her cousin's house and kept the number with her. Heartbeat is saving lives in so many ways!

How could I not 5-star Heartbeat Int'l?! As a Board member, center volunteer & former treasurer of a small pregnancy resource center, I frequently experience Heartbeat's smart & loving "touch".
If I need to study up on hiring well, BOOM!, their Staffing Essentials manual can be ordered for overnight delivery, bringing me decades of distilled wisdom.
If I need an expert in center governance, BAM!, an amazing expert can be scheduled to bring us a concise, perfectly facilitated Board & Executive Director one-day retreat.
If I need an advisor to explain oh-so-gently just how we can implement our life-affirming beliefs consistently across all elements of center operations, there s/he is on the phone.
And when I want to keep informing and training volunteers & staff, HB newsletters & more manuals are current & there to help.
Thank God for Heartbeat International. Give them my thumbs-up and thanks all day, every day.
