2020 has been a year none of us will ever forget. It’s been a challenging and even tragic year for most if not all of us.

However, despite extra challenges, 2020 has been a year full of achievements and rewarding experiences for Pro-Life Utah.

What We’ve Done

You may have barely heard of us, or maybe you’ve followed us on social media for a while. Or perhaps you’ve been a loyal donor or volunteer with us for years!

If you’re new, we’re here to show you that we do more than talk the talk; we walk the walk!

And if you’re a loyal donor or volunteer, we want to thank you by showing you exactly what your resources have contributed to.

We take a multi-faceted approach to saving lives and promoting a culture of life. To show you exactly how we do that, we explain 8 main ways we have taken pro-life action in Utah in 2020.

In 2020, Pro-Life Utah has:

  1. Saved babies

  2. Helped mothers

  3. Continued support

  4. Ministered through sidewalk advocacy

  5. Passed major pro-life legislation

  6. Purchased our ultrasound van

  7. Held our biggest March for Life ever

  8. Grown and restructured our organization

1. Saved Babies

Everyone’s favorite update: we have had the blessing of being a part of saving 10 babies!

Every dollar donated and every hour volunteered would have been worth it if it had amounted to only 1 life saved. I.e., we will never know the total number of babies who might have been lost if it were not for you standing up for life on social media or standing on the sidewalk outside Planned Parenthood; however, we are delighted to know that at least 10 babies have been rescued this year as a direct result of our work and your support.

Meet 3 of our babies, Tatiana, Luna, and Brynlee:

Baby Tatiana’s mother was overwhelmed and drowning in despair when she picked up the phone and reached out through our Pregnancy Choice Utah hotline. For Tatiana’s mother, abortion was not an option—it was the only option. We worked with this sweet mother to unpack and resolve many of the issues that were pushing her to make a decision that would have ended the life of her unborn child.
