Pregnancy Resource Centers save lives and serve parents

This past Monday, we attended the fundraising banquet for Lighthouse Pregnancy Resource Center with four locations in Hawthrone, Hackensack, Wayne, and Paterson. It was a night to truly reaffirm the gift of Life and the ministry of Lighthouse that in 2023 served 1845 people, performed 1120 ultrasounds, and celebrated 554 babies being born to “lighthouse moms.”  

Congratulations to our friends at Lighthouse and to the parents who said “YES” to their baby, participated in the parenting programs offered, and accessed the resources made available by Lighthouse for families struggling with the financial responsibilities of parenthood.  

Sadly, in 2024, every act of kindness, every labor of love, every offer of assistance, such as those carried out by Lighthouse Pregnancy Resource Centers have now become political targets.  

As you might know, Attorney General Matt Platkin, Congressman Josh Gottheimer (D), and a number of state legislators are publicly demeaning and outright lying about the work being done in these life affirming clinics to distort their work and taint their reputation within the communities they serve.  

Let’s be clear, to weaponize one’s elected office to be a mouthpiece of the culture of death is both morally tragic and emotionally traumatizing to many parents. The flagrant disregard for the personal stories we heard on Monday night from mothers and fathers who found help in a time of uncertainty is a disgraceful and willing act of indifference. We would encourage, if not expect more empathy from State and Federal lawmakers. 

That is why we must hold them accountable for their inaccurate and intentionally misleading choice of words.   

We have developed a new education resource that you can download and share with others. Please click on the flyer images to go to our website resource page, then email, text or print the flyer to distribute it. Let’s not allow them to get away with their false narrative and firebrand political rhetoric used against pregnancy resource centers and the Christians that volunteer their time in them.  

This same past Monday, March 18, the New Jersey Assembly passed Resolution 122 that “condemns” in the “strongest of terms”, HR 431 – the Congressional sponsored legislation that would recognize and grant “personhood” to any “born and preborn human person“.  

We need your financial support to continue our advocacy work in protecting pregnancy resource centers. Please click on the Donate button to give a one-time gift today of $250, $100, $50, or your very best.
