Impact August 2020

Our mission is to create a just society that has the utmost respect for all human life from fertilisation. We live this out by providing positive alternatives to abortion through support for women and families and education for young people. Thanks for being a part of this.

Welcome to our impact page. Here you can discover how Life is making a difference by providing positive alternatives to abortion.

Pregnancy tests requested


Every month we help women as they face the possibility that they might be pregnant. By offering free pregnancy tests, we are accompanying women from the very first moment of their pregnancy journey. In August, 150 women a day asked us for a free pregnancy test.

People texting for help

Here's how many people texted us for emotional support about pregnancy in August 2018, August 2019, and August 2020.

Life Matters® outreach


In August 2020, 116 people visited the Life Matters® Resources page. They got access to videos, fact-sheets, and infographics telling them about their human dignity and our services.
