Mission
  • Assist the local Christian Community to open
    three to five life-saving, life-changing
    pregnancy resource centers in the neediest
    neighborhoods of Miami over the next two years.

3
Pregnancy Resource Centers….
  • While some in the pro-life movement labor to
    make abortion unlawful the pregnancy center
    movement works to make abortion unnecessary.

4
Pregnancy Centers… A national movement
  • There are currently over 2,300 pregnancy resource
    centers in America
  • They are run by Christians, supported by
    Christians
  • Organized to advance six Core Values

5
Core Values…
  • The Supremacy of the Gospel
  • The Dignity of Women
  • The Sanctity of Human Life
  • The Irreplaceable Value of Fathers
  • The Soundness of Sexual Purity, Marriage and
    Family
  • The Transforming Power of Neighborly Love

6
Pregnancy Resource Centers….
  • Reach out to women considering abortion due to
    their difficult circumstances

7
Pregnancy Resource Centers….
  • Provide abortion-vulnerable women a
  • free ultrasound and a medical consultation.

8
PRCs Equipped With Ultrasound
  • Nationwide, 79 of women considering
    abortion, when provided and ultrasound and
    practical help, change their minds or learn it is
    not needed.

I am going to have an abortion, unless God
gives me a sign! (Her ultrasound revealed a
16 week healthy baby.) I think I just got my
sign!
9
Pregnancy Resource Centers…
  • Provide…
  • Continuous practical help and friendship
  • Parent preparation classes and/or adoption
    support
  • Post Abortion Bible Studies

10
Pregnancy Resource Centers….
  • Save mothers and babies from the violence of
    abortion.

How could I ever have thought of aborting this
baby! He changed my life. Before I was just
self-absorbed. My baby has made me a better
person. AWC has changed my life. Thank you God!
Through all of this weve both changed. R.s my
best friend and a wonderful father. You should
see him with Dylan together, its a riot. A
wedding is in the future. We are a family! I have
learned to pray and to seek God in so many
wonderful ways. If it wasnt for AWC I dont
know where we would be today!

BUT…Pregnancy Centers face a challenge…
  • For the last 30 years, it has been mainly
    local churches in the suburbs and small towns of
    America that have open Pregnancy Centers

13
Abortion Facilities are…
  • Consolidating to the cities
  • Planned Parenthood closed 17 abortion facilities
    in 2004.
  • Planned Parenthood sold 20 more abortions.
  • How?

14
Abortion Facilities are Targeting Minorities
  • Black American Women make up 13 of the
    population, but account for 36 of all abortions
  • Latino American Women make up 12 of the
    population but account for 20 of all abortions
  • Currently, 94 of Americas abortion facilities
    are in cities.

15
The National Challenge…
  • Pregnancy Centers are predominantly operating in
    red county America.
  • Abortion facilities are largely operating in
    blue county America in our nations cities.

16
The National Challenge…
Example PITTSBURGH
  • Pittsburgh has 5 abortion facilities
  • Pennsylvania has 138 PRCs
  • Pittsburgh has 0 PRCs

17
A National Strategic Plan
  • Heartbeat International, Care Net, and Focus
    on the Family have agreed to work together to
    steer the pregnancy center movement into the
    neediest cities of America over the coming years.

18
Heartbeat of Miami A Pilot Project
Heartbeat International has taken Miami as their
Pilot Project in this National Strategic Plan.
19
Why Miami?
  • Florida is one of the four areas in America were
    abortion is concentrated. The others are CA
    (LA!), NY (NYC!), and the District of Columbia
    (Washington (!).
  • 40.1 percent of all abortions are happening in
    Miami-Dade and Broward County.
  • The problem is centralized in and around Miami.

20
Why Miami?…
  • Miami shows the greatest need. It has nearly 40
    places where women are being aborted but only one
    ultrasound- equipped Pregnancy Center.

21
We have identified 37 abortion facilities
in/around Miami to date
22
Seven abortion facilities have been identified in
one neighborhood Hialeah
23
Answering the Call…
  • Life is Gods most precious gift.
    Abortion…is not merely an awful tyranny it is a
    smear against the integrity of God as well.
    Suffer as we must, even die if need be, such
    rebellion against heaven must not be free to run
    its terrible courses. Ignatius Loyola
    (1491-1556)

24
Because Heartbeat Believes this…
  • They are dedicating time, talent and treasure to
    Miami.

25
Because Rev. John Ensor believes this…
  • He has agreed to lead the Miami initiative on
    behalf of Heartbeat International. John is the
    founder of A Womans Concern, a ministry of six
    pregnancy centers in Boston.

John Ensor is an ordained Evangelical
minister, speaker and author of several books,
including, Answering the Call (Focus on the
Family, 2003).
26
Because we hope many believe this…
  • We hope to raise 1,000,000 in start-up funds (2
    years).
  • to instruct and inspire the local church to the
    mission.
  • to plan, lease, hire, train and equip 3-5 new
    PRCs
  • to raise a matching amount in annual, local
    support.
  • Raised to date 225,000 for year one.

27
Ways to help Answer the Call
  • Pray. Intercede for Gods favor and guidance.
  • Pledge. Contribute to our start-up plans or
    pledge a monthly gift.
  • Promote. Pass this vision on to like-minded
    friends.
  • Provide. We will need plumbers and preachers, IT
    guys and data-base geeks, marketing specialists,
    nurses, counselors and drivers. Provide your
    profession.
