Chris Slattery has been a pro-life leader for 25 years and founded the first, full-time crisis pregnancy center in New York City called Expectant Mother Care.
Expectant Mother Care, also known as EMC FrontLine Pregnancy Centers, opened in Manhattan in 1985. EMC has grown to 15 office locations in 6 counties, including Westchester, Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, the Bronx, and Hudson County, New Jersey.
EMC counselors have served over 70,000 women and girls since inception and have saved over 12,000 from a certain abortion. Staff members provide ultrasound and pre-natal care in addition to counseling. Other services include adoption, housing, and legal aid referrals as well as material supplies for mothers and babies.
Chris Slattery organizes prayer vigils, marches, and protests at Planned Parenthood events. He vigorously defends and champions the pro-life side of the abortion debate at media interviews and press conferences. Chris was honored with the “Champion for Life” award by John Cardinal O’Connor and was a Confirmation sponsor of the acclaimed videos, “The Silent Scream,” and “Eclipse of Reason.” He also won a quick settlement of lawsuit filed against a major New York abortion mill chain for their deceptive advertising in the Yellow Pages.
