.- A new campaign from pro-life group Heroic Media has found considerable support from busy moms seeking to get more involved in promoting abortion alternatives.

The new campaign, 1000 Moms, was launched last year and has already “seen a very positive response,” executive director Joe Young of Heroic Media told CNA May 7.

By engaging mothers in prayer, networking and giving, the group aims “to help build a culture of life within our communities.”

One of the most important ways mothers are involved in this process is through prayer, Young explained, “Not just for Heroic Media, but for the women we’re reaching through our life-affirming media campaigns.”

Mothers are also asked to “be a champion of life” in their communities by educating themselves on sanctity of life issues, such as abortion and euthanasia, so that they can be “ready to present a pro-life position in the conversation.”

Young said moms are encouraged to share Heroic Media’s message in their social media networks as well.

Finally, members are asked to commit to a $1,000 donation annually to help fund pro-life media campaigns in their local communities.

By supporting the group financially, “They can ensure that this message of hope and help is given through their community and it points back to their local service providers in their area.”

So far, local media campaigns have helped make “significant progress” in connecting women facing an unplanned pregnancy with alternatives to abortion.

“This year, we’ve had more than 65,000 women connected to life-affirming resources,” Young said.

In addition to helping support pro-life ad campaigns, the 1000 Moms initiative is “all about celebrating the heroism of motherhood,” by recognizing the daily sacrifices of local moms.

“Motherhood is such an important job in this country, one that has been downplayed or even demonized in some circles and we really want to celebrate the heroism of motherhood,” Young said.

“Moms play critical role in child development and we just want to celebrate that and allow them to give back to new moms now.”
