Loveline is a ministry started by Abby Johnson, the former Planned Parenthood director who quit and became pro-life, to help mothers beyond the typical help of a pro-life pregnancy center.

Loveline spokeswoman Pamela Whitehead tells OneNewsNow the new organization is not intending to downplay the vital work of pregnancy centers, which provide women with everything from ultrasounds to pregnancy testing, and help them acquire services such as WIC.

“But some of the ladies that we've encountered need a different kind of assistance,” Whitehead says, “like rent or utilities.”

In the organization's first three months, 43 women and 66 children have been helped with financial and household needs, counseling, and tuition payments.

Whitehead cites one example: a husband and wife welcomed a third child but then he tragically left her just three weeks after delivery, when she was on maternity leave and not being paid.

Loveline is now helping her pay rent.

The program has been operating behind the scenes for some time before Johnson decided to make it public, and Whitehead says the response from the public has been overwhelming.
