Justice Kennedy’s Retirement Brings Hope to the Pro-Life Movement

The pro-life movement had a, dare I say, great week. It feels odd to write those words, but those words are truth. We won a landmark case this week as the Court ruled in the favor of NIFLA, California pregnancy centers, and free speech for everyone. I am not going to dissect that case today, [...]

The Hard Days

I typically focus on the good days here at HOPE. I share the stories of redemption and reconciliation as we celebrate the lives of our patients and their babies. I am not apologizing for this, but I do think at times it is easy for us, the pregnancy center movement, to neglect sharing the hard [...]

HOPE In and Out of the Exam Room

HOPE is blessed, through the support of our partners, to serve men and women in our city holistically...mind, body, and spirit. One of the ways we are able to meet the needs of our patients outside of the exam room is through parenting education. Through our education program we are able to equip, mentor, and [...]

Pain Capable Bill Stalls in the Senate

The Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act made its way to the Senate this week with very little hope of passage.

A New Day

Forty-five years ago this week, the greatest country this planet has ever seen ushered in a new era for future generations. An era that would bring about destruction to women, men, the unborn, and families. I realize that my description is aggressive, but Roe v. Wade was an aggressive court case that we continue to [...]

The Adoption Tax Credit Should not be Repealed

Grateful

Last week we invited volunteers back to HOPE to celebrate 20 years of service in Knoxville. We made gift bags, provided cookies and cake, and offered tours of the building for those that hadn’t visited in a while. The impact HOPE has had on over 25,000 patients would never have happened without the countless sacrificial [...]

What Happens When a Patient’s Water Breaks the Morning of Her Baby Shower? We Move the Baby Shower to the Delivery Room!

As many of you know, HOPE provides roughly 50 to 60 baby showers every single year. These showers are a consistent highlight to our year as we get to experience the love of a mother for her child, the outpouring of support from our community, and the impact love has on broken situations. We recently [...]
