We are ready to stand in the gap to help women and children and families.


Born Ready is a forum to empower, equip, mobilize, and resource Catholics to fulfill their baptismal call to serve women, children, and families, especially women in difficult and unexpected pregnancies.

On January 22, the California Bishops issued a statement committing to a vision of support for women, children and families. This is who we are as Catholics. For more than 2000 years, Catholics have cared for the most vulnerable by founding the first hospitals, orphanages, and social safety nets. We provide food, drink, clothing, shelter, healthcare, visit the sick and imprisoned, comfort the afflicted and the dying. We were born ready.

Now, as some states in the US ban abortion and others seek to be abortion destinations, Catholics will stand in the gap to support women, children and families with life affirming resources. We want every child, every woman, every family, to be supported in their dignity as a child of God, knowing that they too, are born ready.
