Investigating the pregnancy help movement
Known abortion advocate and self-proclaimed investigative reporter Katie Stack has recently gone undercover to more than 30 pregnancy help organizations (PHO) in attempt to smear the work of the pregnancy help movement.
Honored by organizations such as NARAL and NOW, Stack has consistently spoken out against the work of our movement, and the information we provide. Unfortunately, she has received publicity on the national level, including an opinion piece in The New York Times that criticizes both PHOs and Heartbeat's Babies Go to Congress event. This event gives our affiliates the opportunity to share stories with their local congressmen of moms and babies helped by centers in their communities.
There continues to be a concerted effort by the opposition to publish negative reports and use potentially viral videos – especially among young people – to spout falsehoods, misinformation, and spurious allegations attempting to discredit PHOs. Stack has made it her mission to spread the false information NARAL and others so readily tout.
Heartbeat has created tools to help shield our affiliates from these attacks. We cannot guarantee that Stack and others like her will not enter our centers. We can tell you, however, that if our affiliate organizations follow the Commitment of Care and Competence, they are doing their part to protect their center and the women they serve.
Our Commitment of Care and Competence was designed to dispel the abortion activists’ false accusations, and to form the basis for strong client-services approval ratings. This commitment is the standard for affiliation with Heartbeat.
Heartbeat is here for our affiliates. Remember, our first response is always to join you in prayer, remembering that God will work all things together for our good.
“The LORD is my light and my salvation—whom shall I fear?
The LORD is the stronghold of my life—of whom shall I be afraid?”
