Our Mission, History, and Future


Our Mission


We are committed to the sanctity of life at all stages and to the traditional values of the institution we call the family. Because we value human life above all things our number one priority is serving you.


Due to the unstable and uncertain times our world offers we are dedicated to serve the Pro-Life movement with solid and unchanging convictions of the heart. These convictions help to make us leaders in meeting the needs of Pro-Life and Pro-Family organizations by providing quality materials, at the best prices, with superior service.


Your satisfaction is our responsibility and our guarantee. We understand and appreciate that we make a living by what we do, but we make a life by what we give. Together we move toward achieving our goals. By working together, good work becomes great work.


With passion, pride and purpose we will help you make our world a better place to be, by saving babies and serving families.


Our Statement Against Violence


We oppose any form of violence in the name of Pro-Life and believe the very term is the antithesis of violence. As Christians, we are called to abhor the sin of abortion, yet to love all of God's people. This is not a love that overlooks wrong, rather, it recognizes the worth of every individual. Christ died for the born and the unborn. If we offer violence and hatred, how are we any different than the rest of the world? If we, instead, offer the love of Christ, then we give our enemies a glimpse of God.


"Shouldn't we all take a strong stand against abortion?' Of course! And to Pro-Lifers around the country, the violence at clinics is sickening. Yet, that violence no more negates the moral wrong of abortion than the violence of the Civil War negated the moral wrong of slavery. As long as innocent human beings are being legally killed in this nation, the Pro-Life movement will fight for their right to life - please do it peacefully.


Our History


On January 22, 1974 Virginia and Ellis Evers ran across a full page ad in their local newspaper in San Diego, California. Prominent in the ad was a picture of the tiny feet of a ten week old unborn baby held between a man's fingers and thumb. Inspired by the remarkable photo, Virginia Evers felt these little feet would be the ideal Pro-Life symbol. With love and dedication for the unborn, Virginia designed the "Precious Feet" lapel pin.


In 1979, at a world-wide symposium in Dublin, Ireland the "Precious Feet" were named the "International Pro-Life Symbol." Since that time over 11,000,000 have been distributed throughout the world.


In 1991, Virginia and Ellis retired with the consolation that their ministry would continue through their daughter and son-in-law, Dinah and Mike Monahan. For six years the Monahan's took pregnant young women into their home under the "We Care" program sponsored by the Heritage House.


The Future


Today we are expanding our Pro-Life efforts by focusing on the cause and prevention of abortion. Chastity and abstinence will help to prevent contraceptive abortion in our country. They will reduce the number of children born into single-parent families, decrease welfare costs and help curb the spread of sexually transmitted diseases. Chastity begins in the home. Our families are the answer.


We are committed to providing you with effective, current, top of the line materials to continue your fight for life and traditional family values. With books, videos, promotional materials, and fund raising items we have structured our prices so that you can buy in quantity and receive a substantial discount. Our goal is to be your educational resource, to provide a means by which your group can earn money while it spreads the message of life, and to equip you with the materials you need to nurture and preserve the family.
