About Us

Our Mission

Pro-life Helena has a mission to train, equip, and support the Pro-life Helena community
in providing real hope and help for women facing unplanned pregnancies as well as
healing for those women who are struggling from a past abortion. It is our goal to not
only make abortion unnecessary, it is also to make abortion unthinkable in our
community.

A Note From the Chair

While we all celebrated the overturning of Roe v. Wade on June 24, that Supreme Court decision put Montana in a very difficult position. In 1999 the Montana Supreme Court ruled in State v. Armstrong that the right to privacy in our State Constitution extended to abortion. That decision was written by retired Supreme Court Justice James C. Nelson who recently wrote a guest opinion piece for the Helena IR in which he singled out the Human From Day One ad campaign currently running in Helena as an attack on “women’s right to reproductive self-determination”. So much for unbiased Supreme Court Justices. However, because of that decision, abortion in Montana can be performed up to the age of viability unless the mother’s health is at risk in which case it could extend up to the moment of birth. To change that would require overturning the Armstrong decision (similar to how Roe was overturned) or

an amendment to our State Constitution, neither of which would be easy tasks to undertake.


Complicating this is the fact that every state bordering Montana had some type of trigger law in place designed to make abortion illegal in that state once Roe was overturned. The effect of that has been to turn Montana into a destination state for abortions, and we have already seen North Dakota and Wyoming cars at the Helena Planned Parenthood.


Pro-Life Helena is at the forefront of the fight to end abortion here in Helena and across our state. We are a 501c3 nonprofit charitable organization dedicated to making abortion unthinkable in Montana. We sponsor the annual Montana State March for Life, the Spring and Fall 40 Days for Life campaigns, Sidewalk Advocates for Life trainings, the currently running Human From Day One advertising campaign,

and we help prepare individuals to testify on behalf of prolife legislation when our state legislature is in session. We would love to have you actively join our efforts. Check us out at prolifehelena.com, sign up to receive our weekly emails via our email at prolifehelena@gmail.com or find us on Facebook. For more information on how you can become a voice for the preborn, please talk to one of the people with
