Heartbeat International Option Line milestone - 2 million contacts

We've Reached an Amazing Milestone!

Yesterday, at 12:08 am, a Heartbeat International Option Line consultant answered a call. The young woman on the other end of the line was looking for abortion information.
She needed someone, especially when she felt most alone. Option Line—Heartbeat’s 24/7 helpline—was there. And, the young woman was referred to help in her community, Heartbeat affiliate, Bella Women’s Center, in Warren, OH.
But what was so special about this midnight call? After all, Option Line has been reaching women with life-affirming help and hope for nearly 100,000 consecutive hours—including holidays—and carefully connecting women in need with local Pregnancy Help Centers.
This particular call was worthy to celebrate because it marked the 2 millionth time Option Line has answered since we first said, "Hello," in 2003!
