Speaker Bio: Margaret H. (Peggy) Hartshorn, Ph.D., has served as President of Heartbeat

International since 1993. Under Peggy’s leadership, Heartbeat has grown from 250 members to become the largest and most expansive network of Christ-centered, life-affirming, pregnancy help ministries in the world.  Peggy threw herself into the cause of life soon after the Supreme  Court decision of Roe v. Wade, on January 22, 1973, declared abortion restriction unconstitutional. In 1974, she and her husband started opening their home to young mothers.

They founded Pregnancy Decision Health Centers (PDHC) in Columbus, Ohio, in 1981.  Today, Peggy travels and speaks extensively, sharing her “hands on” experience with pregnancy help ministries as they develop programs on abortion, abortion recovery, sexual integrity, adoption,  and alternatives to abortion. Peggy’s book, Footsoldiers Armed with Love, is a personal history of the first 40 years of the pregnancy help movement.   Peggy has been married to Michael Hartshorn for 44 years. They have two adopted children, now married, and five grandchildren.

We hope to see you on January 14!
