HEARTBEAT’S OPTION LINE:
Option Line is our main instrument to Reach desperate women and men facing unintended pregnancies with the real help they need to choose life. This help is accessible 24/7, in English and Spanish, through our national helpline (800-712-HELP), as well as our website (OptionLine.org), which features integrated chat, text-messaging, and email support for women who are either considering abortion or suffering the debilitating effects of a previous abortion. Since its inception in 2003, Option Line has received more than 2.3 million contacts.
Heartbeat serves as the leadership supply line for advancing life-affirming pregnancy help around the world. We train and equip Christian community leaders in the establishment of life-affirming, Christian-supported pregnancy help centers, ultrasound-equipped pregnancy help medical clinics, maternity homes for women and children, and non-profit adoption agencies. Local pregnancy help ministries provide women and couples the help they need to choose life, prepare to parent, or place for adoption. Training opportunities include The Heartbeat Pregnancy Help Institute which encompasses leadership, development, and new director tracks, Heartbeat’s Annual Conference, customized on-site consultations and training, Heartbeat International Academy, the first e-learning platform for pregnancy help leaders, and the more than 30 training manuals and resources developed by Heartbeat International.
