On January 22, 1974 Virginia and Ellis Evers ran across a full
page ad in their local newspaper in San Diego, California. Prominent in the
ad was a picture of the tiny feet of a ten week old unborn baby held between
a man's fingers and thumb. Inspired by the remarkable photo, Virginia Evers
felt these little feet would be the ideal Pro-Life symbol. With love and dedication
for the unborn, Virginia designed the "Precious Feet" lapel pin.
In 1979, at a world-wide symposium in Dublin, Ireland the "Precious
Feet" were named the "International Pro-Life Symbol." Since that time over 15,000,000
have been distributed throughout the world.
In 1991, Virginia and Ellis retired with the consolation that
their ministry would continue through their daughter and son-in-law, Dinah and
Mike Monahan. Mike and Dinah have followed in the pro-life path and took pregnant
young women into their home under the "We Care" program sponsored by the Heritage
House. Heritage House now sponsors three local Crisis Pregnancy Centers and
Hope House Maternity Home as well as many national pro-life organizations.

Our Statement Against Violence
We oppose any form of violence in the name of the Pro-Life cause
and believe the very term "Pro-Life" is the antithesis of violence.
God sees value in EVERY human life, born and unborn, pro-life or pro-abortion.
Any violence, whether in the womb or outside an abortion clinic, is unacceptable
and hypocritical. We want to equip our customers to be able to get out there
and make a real difference - and to make the difference in a way that shows
we respect all life, from conception to natural death..
Heritage House will continue to work to provide the highest quality
pro-life and pro-family materials. Our goal is to equip the pro-life "laypersons"
to be able to reach the public easily and effectively. In the future we expect
we will continue fulfilling this great need and working with you to save and
