“Pregnancy Care Centers offer women real support and free services, unlike the abortion industry that makes millions while attacking the selfless volunteers who help women in their communities every day,” said AULA’s Jeanneane Maxon
CONCORD, N.H. (05-03-12) – Americans United for Life Action Vice President of External Affairs and Corporate Counsel Jeanneane Maxon will testify later today in favor of a New Hampshire resolution commending the work of pregnancy care centers.
The resolution is part of an effort from Americans United for Life and Care Net to recognize the life-changing work of pregnancy care centers that offer “compassionate and confidential counselling in a nonjudgmental manner regardless of their pregnancy outcomes,” said Maxon
The details of the hearing are as follows:
Who: Jeanneane Maxon, Vice President of External Affairs and Corporate Counsel for AUL Action
What: Testifying in favor of HCR31
When: Thursday, 5-3-12, at 1:00 pm
Where: LOB 102 (Legislative Office Building, located directly behind the N.H. State House) 33 N State St., Concord, N.H.
During her remarks, Maxon will note the scope of pregnancy care centers’ work.
More than 2,500 pregnancy care centers operate across the United States including those in New Hampshire and provide invaluable free services to hundreds of thousands of women facing unplanned pregnancies. In 2010, pregnancy care centers served over 2.3 million people.
Maxon said, “A conservative estimate of community cost savings for these services during 2010 is well over $100 million. In addition to specific cost savings, pregnancy care centers drew on the help of 71,000 volunteers who performed an estimated 5,705,000 uncompensated hours of work in 2010.”
Uniquely qualified to testify on this issue, Maxon served as General Counsel for Care Net, a national network of pregnancy care centers, before joining AUL-AULA. To read her entire testimony, click here.
