REPORT: 160K Children Rescued from Abortion Are Celebrating Their First Christmas

A group of children a year old and younger matching the size of cities like Fort Lauderdale, Fla., and Tempe, Ariz., are celebrating their first Christmas, in 2015, thanks to the work of local staff and volunteers at pro-life pregnancy centers, according to statistics released by Heartbeat International.

The numbers, published in the first-annual Life Trends Report, draw only from Heartbeat International’s 1,300 locations in the U.S., but point to 160,000 lives rescued from the threat of abortion in 2015 alone.

Overall, there are 2,500+ life-affirming pregnancy help centers and medical clinics in the U.S., including those who affiliate with Heartbeat International, Care Net, National Institute of Family and Life Advocates (NIFLA), Life Matters Worldwide and local organizations who do not affiliate with broader networks.

Adding in the number of mothers who have chosen life for their babies in 2015 at pregnancy centers and medically licensed pregnancy clinics not affiliated with Heartbeat International, the number of lives saved would jump to 300,000—the size of Pittsburgh or Cincinnati.
