NIFLA: Founded in 1993, the National Institute of Family and Life Advocates (NIFLA) provides life-affirming pregnancy resource centers (PRCs) with legal counsel, education, and training. Providing critical counsel to PRCs to enable them to avoid legal pitfalls in their operations, NIFLA continues to grow and now represents over 1,400 members across the country.
NIFLA is the national leader in the development of legal guidelines to help PRCs convert to licensed medical clinics. Through NIFLA’s The Life Choice Project (TLC), hundreds of PRCs have made a successful conversion to medical clinic status. By providing medical services, including ultrasound confirmation of pregnancy, PRCs open a window to the womb for abortion-minded patients. After viewing an ultrasound, the vast majority of these patients choose life. Of NIFLA’s membership, nearly 1,100 PRCs operate as medical clinics.
Heartbeat International: Heartbeat International is the first network of pro-life pregnancy resource centers in the U.S. and the largest and most expansive in the world. Since 1971, Heartbeat has supported, strengthened and started pregnancy help organizations, including pregnancy medical clinics, pregnancy resource centers, maternity homes, and adoption agencies all over the world. Currently, Heartbeat serves 2,000 affiliates on all six inhabited continents to provide alternatives to abortion.
