October 5 & 6, 2011: Heartbeat International - Babies Go To Congress

There's nothing quite like it…Heartbeat International'sBabies Go to Congress® campaign may be the most powerful Pro-Life event on Capitol Hill. Just imagine pro-abortion lawmakers, many of whom sponsor legislation to put pregnancy centers out of business, meeting with women who chose life at our pregnancy help centers! After all, who can turn away smiling mothers, with happy babies in hand, who share their stories of the love and support they found at their local pregnancy help center?

On October 5 & 6, Heartbeat international will be taking a new group of moms and their babies on a journey through the halls of Congress. These moms are excited to share their powerful stories with their Representatives. You can get to know each of these moms and read their stories by clicking here.

This event will be different than any previous Babies Go to Congress. We are excited to be taking moms and "babies" of all ages to Washington, D.C. Some of their lives were changed by the outreach of a pregnancy help center many years ago, some only a few months ago. Their stories demonstrate that the support women receive from pregnancy help centers has an impact on their lives and the lives of their children for many years to come. Be sure to follow these moms virtually as they boldly testify before members of Congress.

This Babies Go to Congress is taking place at a pivotal time in our nation's history. For the first time ever, Congress has launched an investigation into the procedures and policies of the Planned Parenthood abortion business. What a strategic time to share the life-saving impact that pregnancy help centers have on women facing an unexpected pregnancy. Now is the time to show Congress that pregnancy centers are good for America!
