Building Great Futures with Great Charity
EMC Frontline began 40 years ago with an accidental conversation outside an abortion clinic in Manhattan at 7:30 in the morning. That first conversation led to the first baby saved from abortion by founder Chris Slattery and the founding of EMC Frontline, which is dedicated to supporting young women in need find a path to keeping their baby and living full lives.
We sign women up for insurance. We get them medical care. We give them the supplies they need, like diapers.
To ensure woman have the help they need to support themselves and their families.
To make sure no woman feels alone, unwanted, or that they have no choice.
Our goal is simple, help woman and children with support and dedication when they have none.

“We learned that providing free resources is critical—like ultrasounds, helpful education resources, and compassionate counsellors who share hope and help. That’s what makes the difference for vulnerable families and at-risk youth. We’re averaging two and a half saves a day now. We’ve saved tens of thousands of babies, and it all started with that one on a plaza in front of an office building on Park Avenue, 40 years ago.”
