Heartbeat International, the nation’s largest network of pregnancy help centers, celebrates decisive Supreme Court victory

“I thank God that fifty years of injustice for the unborn and fifty years of the craven politicization of women’s health by Big Abortion activists is over.”
— Jor-El Godsey, President of Heartbeat International

COLUMBUS, OH: The leaders of Heartbeat International respond to the overturning of Roe v. Wade with the following statements:

Danielle M. White, General Counsel for Heartbeat International: 

“Roe was wrong the day it was decided. Yet for decades, the Supreme Court has clung to the outdated notion that women need abortion in order to participate equally in the life of the nation. How utterly untrue! With the Supreme Court out of the way, states can now be much more creative in exploring how best to support and empower women as they choose life and pursue their dreams. Pregnancy help has stood beside women, walked with them, and journeyed with them through an unexpected pregnancy, so that no woman ever feels so alone or so helpless that she thinks that abortion is her only option.”

Jor-El Godsey, Heartbeat International President:

“Finally, the Supreme Court has admitted their grave error and overturned Roe, but we must never forget these fifty years. I thank God that fifty years of injustice for the unborn and fifty years of the craven politicization of women’s health by Big Abortion activists is over. Today is not just a historic day—it is a new day.”  

Cindi Boston-Bilotta, Heartbeat International’s Vice President of Mission Advancement:

“The need is not going to go away, women will still need help, and the pregnancy help movement will continue to be there for any woman who needs us.”

Betty McDowell, Vice President of Ministry Services with Heartbeat International:

“Someone asked me, ‘how does this change your work?’ The truth is that it really doesn’t. For decades we have served every mother we could and we will continue to day after day every woman who comes to us. We’re for women, and we will continue to help support them and to provide training for pregnancy help centers all over the world.”

Andrea Trudden, Heartbeat International Vice President of Communications & Marketing:

“Our work is not over, in fact, in many ways it is just beginning. Women still need compassionate care and support, and we will continue to be here to offer it to them. Abortion may not now be available in every state, but practical resources and life-affirming options are through our network of pregnancy help organizations. We will wake up tomorrow and do exactly what we have done for fifty years—help women.”
