MANILA, Feb. 27, 2015—A non-profit organization of life-affirming pregnancy centers will be holding a conference that aims to train, encourage, and motivate family and life advocates in their ministry of helping women in pregnancy crisis, saving babies, and building strong families.
Pregnancy Support Services of Asia (PSSA), together with the Archdiocese of Manila Commission on Family and Life and Couples for Christ, will be holding its 4th regional training conference entitled “Your Heart Today” at the St. Michael Retreat House in Antipolo City from March 6 to 8.
The conference will focus on noting the importance of life and family values in the present-day milieu in the context of observing sound pregnancy, sustaining responsible healthcare for women and babies, and developing strong ties among modern families.
Dr. Margaret Hartshorn, president of Heartbeat International, will be gracing the event as its guest speaker.
PSSA aims to reduce abortion and strengthen families in Asia by establishing, developing, and supporting life-affirming pregnancy services through prevention, crisis intervention, and healing to those who are abortion-vulnerable.
It is an affiliate of Heartbeat International in preserving, protecting and leading the advocacy of affirming life in Asia, establishing life-saving resource centers and empowering the family.
Heartbeat International aims to reduce, if not totally eliminate, the practice of abortion through counseling via its contact centers around the world; provide true reproductive health care, ministry, education, and social services to women; and develop pregnancy centers in places where abortion clinics are rampant.
