Melinda Delahoyde Responds to Reince Preibus' Comments on Care Net Pregnancy Centers


In a recent pre-debate interview of candidates vying for Republican National Committee Chairman, Reince Preibus, who was ultimately elected, talked about his role in a local Care Net pregnancy center in Kenosha, WI.  The interview was conducted by leaders of Susan B. Anthony List and National Organization for Marriage and posted on YouTube:

Care Net President Melinda Delahoyde responded:

“Whether Republican, Democrat, or Independent, pro-life Americans are proudly touting their involvement with local pregnancy centers. Newly-elected Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus was quick to share about his role in assisting a Wisconsin Care Net pregnancy center, and to explain the practical compassionate help these centers provide to women. He said the pregnancy center was “a great place and a safe harbor for women facing difficult situations where pregnancy tests, ultrasounds, food and diapers and an opportunity to share the love of Christ with people who are in real trouble and making some tough decisions.’ His involvement with a local pregnancy center was not a reflection of his party affiliation, but, he said, of his faith and understanding that life begins at conception, is precious, and should be protected. Care Net couldn’t agree more, and we thank the Chairman for raising awareness about this critical work. The beauty of pregnancy centers is reflected in volunteers like Reince, who lend a helping hand to people in their community and, in so doing, help to build a culture of life in America.”

What other leaders would you like to see champion the work of pregnancy centers?  For Care Net, we'd like to see leaders from diverse backgrounds, both sides of the political aisle, and all facets of the community...
