Image Bearers: Shifting from Pro-Birth to Pro-Life by Herbie Newell…Don’t Just Say You’re Prolife Without Understanding What That Means



Image Bearers

Shifting from Pro-birth to Pro-Life


Herbie Newell

PUBLIUS GUEST AUTHOR: Herbie Newell, author of Image Bearers: Shifting from Pro-birth to Pro-Life. Herbie Newell is the President & Executive Director of Lifeline Children’s Services and its ministry arms.

Being pro-life means that not only do we see abortion as a murder, but we also see our apathy against injustice toward outside of the womb as a coconspirator in the fight for life. It means that we fight for racial equality.

It means that we love the woman walking into the abortion clinic passionately with the love of Christ, and it means we embrace life no matter what label may be attached to a person’s identity. There are many books written about being pro-life, the pro-life and right-to-life movement, and combating abortion arguments, but my hope is this small volume will bring awareness that the pro-life movement ethic is so much bigger in presenting a case for life than just being pro-birth.

Lifeline Children Services Author Herbie Newell is the President & Executive Director of Lifeline Children’s Services and its ministry arms. Lifeline Children’s Services is a non-profit 501c3 ministry and licensed agency founded in 1981.

BIO: Herbie holds a Master’s of Business Administration in Accounting from Samford University.

He joined the Lifeline staff in 2003 as the Executive Director. From January 2004 to December 2008, he served as the president of the Alabama Adoption Coalition. Herbie was chosen as a Hague Intercountry Adoption evaluator and team leader by the Council of Accreditation. Under Herbie’s leadership, Lifeline has increased international outreach to 25 countries through adoption and strategic orphan care, obtained licensure in 12 states, attained membership into the ECFA (Evangelical Council on Financial Accountability), and established the foster care arm of ministry at Lifeline. Herbie has been invited to speak at many events concerning adoption and the church’s response to orphan care, including the National Council for Adoption, Christian Alliance for Orphans, Together for Adoption, Care Net and the Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission.
Having witnessed the plight of older orphans on many trips overseas, Herbie’s burden for the fatherless was a catalyst for forming (un)adopted in 2009, the strategic orphan care ministry of Lifeline focused on equipping orphaned and vulnerable children with life skills needed to bring about community transformation. During the summer of 2013, Herbie and his family traveled for 7 weeks throughout China, working hands-on with (un)adopted and orphanage partners.

He and his wife, Ashley, live in Birmingham, Alabama, and are parents to son, Caleb, and daughters, Adelynn and Emily. Following her graduation from Samford, Ashley worked as the Assistant Director of Sav-a-life, a Birmingham based crisis pregnancy center, where she counseled hundreds of women on life-giving options for their babies. Herbie and Ashley share a passion for the unborn, life, and adoption and desire to spend their lives advocating for the least of these.

Trauma of homelessness grows as more Americans losing homes




More Americans are facing the trauma of homelessness. This month, Housing and Urban Development Secretary Marcia Fudge released the agency’s annual Point-in-Time count to Congress, reporting key findings related to homelessness in communities throughout the country. The Point-in-Time Count provides a snapshot of the number of people experiencing homelessness, both sheltered and unsheltered, in America on a single night. The one-night counts are conducted during the last 10 days of January each year. The count showed that 580,466 people were homeless in the United States on a single night in January 2020, an increase of 12,751 people, or 2.2 percent, from 2019. The count included 37,252 homeless veterans, 15,204 of those veterans, such as Alex Sangster in Miami, were living without shelter.

The HUD Secretary called the findings “startling.”

“What makes these findings even more devastating is that they are based on data from before COVID-19, and we know the pandemic only made the homelessness crisis worse,” Secretary Fudge said.

Half of America’s homeless population are in four states

More than half of people experiencing the trauma of homelessness came from four states hardest hit by the pandemic: California (161,548), New York (91,271), Florida (27,487), and Texas (27,229).

Despite being one of the four largest states where Americans are homeless, Florida’s rate of homelessness was less than the national average. Florida’s pre-pandemic 2020 numbers also indicate the largest decrease in homelessness since 2007. Many point to significant federal dollars that have come to Florida in the past decade to help the state overcome housing challenges, tax credits that have helped create hundreds of new affordable, supportive housing apartments in Miami-Dade County, and the many diverse private-public partnerships established through those federal programs.

One of those partnerships is Purpose Built Families Foundation’s Operation Sacred Trust collaboration. Operation Sacred Trust, known as OST, was established in 2011 for the purpose of ending veteran homelessness in South Florida’s largest communities: Broward and Miami-Dade counties. Significantly funded by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs Supportive Services for Veteran Families (SSVF) program, the nonprofit has been nationally-accredited since 2018. For the past decade, the agency has implemented a unique, data-driven approach that is constantly seeking to “follow the science” of veteran homelessness. Similar VA-funded SSVF programs are located throughout the United States.
