Fall 2012 Message from the President

Dear friends and supporters of Birthmothers,

This may be the boldest letter I’ve written on behalf of Birthmothers. The urgency is real. I am sure you recognize that this time in our history is like no other.

baby-in-crib.jpgAs national elections draw near, our country is at a crossroads. The upcoming vote in November represents a spiritual choice, not just a political one. The two presidential candidate teams present a stark contrast.

One offers socialism, the other capitalism; one represents government control, the other individual freedom; one promotes a continuation of abortion while the other represents a stand for life.

But you can take action that makes a powerful difference for life right now, before November 6. More on that in a minute …

Here is a chilling thought: will God suffer our sins for much longer as a nation?  “Rend your hearts and not your garments,” He tells us in Joel 2:13.  “Return to the Lord your God, for He is gracious and compassionate slow to anger and abounding in love and He relents from sending calamity.”

Which way will the American people turn?

I admit there are times when the battle for life seems overwhelming.

Our current situation reminds me of the Hebrew nation of old. They refused to pursue God’s blueprint for a prosperous life, and as you know, there were consequences. “The Lord will not leave the guilty unpunished” (Nahum 1:3.) By not following God, the ancient nation of Israel became divided and ultimately fell!

Likewise, today our nation is divided when it comes to the issue of life. I shudder to think of our demise and tell you plainly that I seek God’s mercy each day on behalf of our great nation.

I ask God to ignite a third Great Awakening where we fall on our knees in repentance before Him.  I plead for mercy on behalf of our nation for allowing the holocaust of 55 million innocent young lives. I urge you to join me in lifting up our nation to God if you’re not doing so already. Lives are at stake, but so is the fabric of our country.

Don’t wait until November 6

While praying, you can take steps with me right now to reverse this carnage.

Even though abortion is legal in the United States, women do not want to choose it. Yet they feel they have no option. They feel alone and without support. More than 4 out of 5 women say they would choose life over abortion if they’d had special support from a Friend or partner.

One-on-one support makes a crucial difference. There is a choice – and one that works! At Birthmothers, we match women and their partners with a Birthmothers Friend for unconditional support during an unplanned pregnancy. Matched women overwhelmingly choose life because they have the love and support they need.  No matter what happens at the election (and naturally, I pray fervently for the return to pro-life values), you can save lives and broken hearts right now by supporting Birthmothers.

We need your help to cover Birthmothers immediate expenses so we can continue to provide this life-changing, one-on-one support! (You can give here .)

Your gift will allow us to serve many women and men who face an unplanned pregnancy between now and the election, giving them the priceless support they need to choose life. I’m sure you believe that even one life is worth saving. And come November, we look forward to sharing with you how needs were met.

Will you help Birthmothers before Election Day?  Will you allow women and men (yes – guy Friends support birth fathers) the support they need to choose life? I urge you as never before to join me in this great movement. By doing so, you will help save lives of vulnerable babies who are at risk.

Please give your most generous gift right now, while you’re thinking about it. You’ll help us operate between now and November. Just go to this page and donate now .

Thank you for your passion for life and for following as God leads.        

In His grace,




Jim Wright
Founder, President, and Volunteer

P.S. It’s a fact: more than 95% women matched with a Birthmothers Friend choose life. Help us stay the course with this cause between now and November with your very best gift. You can give here . Thanks.  

P.P.S. I urge you to vote on November 6. Thank you once again.
