Austin, Texas, Nov 13, 2012 / 11:50 am
The Austin-based pro-life media group Heroic Media has released a new video for National Adoption Month to encourage women with unexpected pregnancies to consider adoption.
"Most women don't understand the feeling of empowerment adoption brings," Marissa Cope, Heroic Media's Director of Marketing, Communications and Research, said Nov. 12. "We believe this video will alert women to a possibility they may not have yet considered and ultimately save the lives of unborn children."
Cope said fewer than one percent of women with unplanned pregnancies choose adoption, even though there are 30 to 40 couples desiring to adopt for every adoptive baby.
The ad is a result of Heroic Media's partnership with Bethany Christian Services to publicize resources for pregnant women.
