The more billboards – the more people reached!
It’s proven and it works. Best of all, babies’ lives are being saved!

- PROLIFE Across AMERICA puts human life first and foremost – not animals, not the environment. As long as we choose to end the life of the innocent, all other causes are of little value. We must first choose and value human life. Then we can spend time and money working for other things. And possible, if we as a society chose to value life first and foremost, tragic shootings (like the school shooting in Conn) would never happen.
- PROLIFE Across AMERICA helps the totally innocent. They help the mother keep from making the biggest mistake she will ever make in her life and helps a mother heal from the mistake she made.
- PROLIFE Across AMERICA helps those hurt by abortion find healing resources – whether it’s the mother, father, family or friend.

“When I was 33, my mother shared with me that she changed her mind to abort me and decided to give me birth. Little did she know, it would be me who would take care of her after my father died, until the end of her life. God bless your mission.” Canyon Lake, TX

“In conclusion, I want to thank Mary Ann Kuharski and all the members of PROLIFE Across AMERICA for the good work you are doing to promote the cause of life. You are not only “The Billboard and Radio-ad People” advertising your Pro-Life message across the highways and radio waves of this nation, but you offer alternatives to those seeking abortion as well as post-abortion assistance by connecting such persons to your 800# hotline. Yours is an apostolate that is truly making a difference and I congratulate you on the wonderful success you have achieved. Hopefully, the support you generate here tonight will allow you to continue this terribly important work.” Most Reverend John C. Nienstedt, Archbishop Archdiocese of Saint Paul/Minneapolis MN.
