Who is Human Coalition Action?
…and what is this all about?
Human Coalition Action is a 501(c)(4) nonprofit advocacy organization partnered with a National Rescue System (Human Coalition). We seek to mobilize the grassroots, advocate for pro-life values, and unify the pro-life movement to solidify its victory over abortion.
Human Coalition and HuCo Action are working together to make abortion unthinkable and unavailable as quickly as possible.
We are a coalition unifying the pro-life movement to rescue humans from abortion by engaging and mobilizing the grassroots to defeat the abortion industry at the levels of politics and culture.
We exist to solidify the pro-life movement’s victory over abortion.
We serve on behalf of children at risk of being aborted and the women and families targeted by the abortion industry.
The hero of HCA is the grassroots, pro-life American who courageously chooses to move from advocacy for the preborn child to strategic action on her behalf.
Education: 3 Facts You Need To Know
Ending abortion is not as complicated as some may think.
Approximately 1 Million children are killed by abortion in the United States per year.
Abortion numbers surpass those of cancer and heart disease, making it the leading cause of death in the country.
The abortion-seeking woman is typically an unmarried minority woman in her 20s who has other children in addition to her pregnancy.
She often lives below the poverty line and experiences a combination of difficult circumstances, such as partner abuse, unsafe housing conditions, unemployment, and/or a lack of community and familial support.
The pro-life movement could overtake the abortion industry if it were better funded.
The combined resources of the entire pro-life movement (approx. $700M) are estimated to comprise less than half the annual budget of Planned Parenthood (approx. $1.8B), a single pro-abortion enterprise.
Action Item: Assess Your Community
The first step of pro-life activism is knowing what’s going on in your own backyard.
- When seeking an abortion, pregnant women turn to Google. Open your browser and Google an abortion-procurement search term such as, “Abortion near me,” and see what kind of abortion businesses exist in your community. Are they Planned Parenthood facilities, independent operations, small chains? You may also find abortion “access” organizations that facilitate abortion by subsidizing the cost of the abortion or providing free transportation.
- Then, search Google for pro-life resources available to women in your area. Is there a pregnancy resource center? Church support program? A local nonprofit that helps young families in need?
- Find out who represents you at the local, state, and national levels. Use this tool to get started.
Once you know where the abortion battle lines are drawn in your community, you can begin to take action. It’s OK to start small!
List three actions you will take now that you’re empowered with information about abortion and how it affects your community:
I will ask three or more people what they think about abortion and engage in a friendly dialogue with them.
I commit to voting pro-life in all elections.
I will call my local pregnancy center and see how I can volunteer.”
