Who is Part of Our Organization?

We are made up of men and women of all age groups, church affiliations, and ethnic backgrounds.

What's Our Purpose?

We seek to promote the message of the sanctity and value of all pre-born life. Our motto: “Respecting life from fertilization until natural death.”

We Have 2 Main Goals:


1. Promote

Because Smith County has been blessed with some powerful pro-life leadership, we promote, support and participate in these well-established entities (click on each ministry to be directed to their website):

    2. Educate

    We desire:

    • To educate the general public of the reality of life in the womb, and of the horrors of abortion
    • To see lives (babies and mothers) saved to fulfill God's purposes.
    • For all to know God's forgiveness and healing.
