Carol Everett’s life has been entrenched in women’s reproductive health choices. Her unplanned pregnancy at 16, six years of selling abortions to other women to justify her own, thirty-five thousand abortions, the death of one woman and major surgery on 19 abortion patients brought Carol to a crossroads. She experienced a life-altering change when she came to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ in 1983.
Carol uses her experiences and faith to help women who face reproductive crises with positive, life-affirming options. The Heidi Group partners with these women and their families to meet the needs of a crisis pregnancy with scriptural solutions. Once the baby’s life is secure, immediate needs must be met such as stabilizing the family and helping secure resources to cover basic needs. Long-term plans to facilitate a positive, self-sufficient future, spiritually and economically, are determined on an individual basis. Carol’s ultimate goal is to lead women and families to secure lives in Christ and economic stability.
Carol believes the Lord gave her a three point plan:
-Defund abortion providers of tax dollars (in Texas, then the nation
-Require abortion facilities to meet the safety standards of Ambulatory Surgical Centers
-Create a network of life-affirming health care providers across Texas
The first point has been accomplished and is even now being finalized by the Texas Health and Human Services Commission. The second point is now before the Supreme Court, with oral arguments to be heard March 2. In 2016, she began working toward the third point.
Carol has shared her testimony on national broadcasting programs with Mike Huckabee of Fox News, Matt and Laurie Crouch of Trinity Broadcasting Network, Dr. James Dobson of Focus on the Family, Point of View, Truths that Transform, and Pat Robertson of the 700 Club, to name a few.
Carol’s metamorphosis from hardened pro-choicer to a loving pro-life advocate is detailed in the book, Blood Money – Getting Rich off a Woman’s Right to Choose. The ministry has also released two videos, “The Light of Life” and “Abortion Techniques.”
