  • Getting the verbiage right is vital. The money Vitae is investing makes us go a lot further, to the point that we’re a huge annoyance to Planned Parenthood of the Great Northwest and NARAL Pro-Choice Washington.

    Hasselbeck tells Vitae Donors to Lean InKim Triller, Executive Director of Care Net of Puget Sound - Seattle, Washington
  • For any pregnancy center serious about reaching, engaging, and supporting abortion-minded women, familiarity with the research and messaging strategies produced by Vitae is essential.

  • My abortion was not about birth control—it was about fear. Fear of ruining my current reputation and future dreams. Fear of people finding out I wasn’t a “good” girl. Someone finally understood why I had an abortion and had research to support it!

    Georgette Forney, Silent No More
  • The masters of media are the people defining the moral value system…that is why what you’re doing [Vitae Foundation] is of such vital importance. You are saving lives.

    Oliver North, U.S. Marine (Ret.), Author, Fox News Correspondent
  • The Vitae Foundation is at the forefront of where this movement needs to go, and I really applaud you. You’re changing minds, you’re changing hearts, and the world is a better place for your vision.

    Sean Hannity, TV Host
  • Everybody should ask this question: If you didn’t show up, who would miss you and why? If Vitae hadn’t shown up, think of the babies today who would not be here if it weren’t for them. That’s the greatest contribution we could make to our fellow human beings.

    Lou Holtz, Former Coach - Notre Dame Football


Donate a life tomorrow. Vitae needs your help! If a woman contemplating an abortion doesn’t see Vitae’s messaging, she ends up at an abortion facility instead of a life-affirming Pregnancy Help Center. It’s that simple. Please donate today.
