Created as a token of gratitude for pro-life pregnancy help organizations, Pregnancy Help Appreciation Week is known for its deals and reveals—opportunities to score training materials at rock-bottom prices and chances to get the scoop on special community news.
As one of those reveals, yesterday, Heartbeat International—a global network of 2,600 pregnancy help organizations—unveiled two of its keynote speakers for its 2019 Annual Conference in Dallas, Texas: Rachel Campos-Duffy and Jonathan Evans.
Unwavering advocates for life, both speakers are known for advancing the pro-life message within their respective communities of Latinos and fathers.
Duffy, who is ranked as one of "Newsmax's 50 Most Influential Latino Republicans," is a published author, communications consultant, and television personality specializing in political analysis, culture, and parenting.
She is a FOX News and FOX Business Contributor and a recurring guest host on hit shows, FOX & Friends and Outnumbered offering her unique view on political news, parenting, and everything in between.
Rachel has also appeared as a frequent guest on NBC's Today Show and ABC's The View. Rachel lives in Wisconsin with her husband, pro-life Congressman Sean Duffy [R-WI], and her eight kids.
"Pregnancy help centers are actually women empowerment centers,” said Duffy in a statement honoring Pregnancy Help Appreciation Week. “There is nothing more empowering for a woman than to make a decision to overcome fear and embrace life.”

Evans shares a similar perspective.
"Pregnancy medical clinics are doing a great work on behalf of the greatest gift of all, which is life itself,” he said. “I want to show my appreciation to these pregnancy clinic’s for giving everyone a chance to unwrap the gift and experience the gift that God has given us all."
Serving as the chaplain of the Dallas Cowboys, Evans is a mentor, author, speaker and former NFL fullback who treasures his relationship with Christ. He seeks to impact today's athletes, men, and young adults by equipping and encouraging them in their faith.
Evans serves with his pastor, friend, and father, Dr. Tony Evans, both in the local church and the national ministry. They also teamed up together to write Get in the Game, a practical guidebook filled with sports analogies and spiritual truths aimed at strengthening readers with the skills they need for living victoriously.
Evans and his wife Kanika have a daughter named Kelsey and a son named Jonathan, II.
The Heartbeat International Annual Conference will take place April 24-26 at the Hyatt Regency in Dallas. In 2018, the conference drew over 1,000 advocates from pregnancy centers around the world to its location in Anaheim, California.
Packed with speakers, workshops, and community-building, the conference equips pregnancy help organizations with the skills and relationships needed to serve women, men, and children.
For Duffy, it’s this work that drives her appreciation for the pregnancy help community.
“At pregnancy help centers, women are empowered with the truth about fetal development,” she said. “They are never patronized, exploited or lied to. They are empowered with non-violent options and financial resources to help them through tough times. At pregnancy help centers, women are treated with dignity and their children are regarded as treasures. You will never find this empowerment, love, and compassion at Planned Parenthood or any other abortion clinic.”
