Reconnect Media is a non-profit communications group that empowers women and men to use their voices to support reconnecting sex, marriage, and children in the minds and lives of Americans, in order to lower the demand for abortion, promote women’s freedom, alleviate poverty and strengthen communities.




I Believe in Love (iBiL) is a movement of young Americans sharing their stories about love, dating, marriage, and family. Through writing and community, I Believe in Love is empowering those most vulnerable to non-marital pregnancy and the breakdown of marriage and family to reconnect sex with marriage and children, for the good of their children and themselves.


Women Speak For Themselves (WSFT) is a national grassroots movement empowering women to speak in media, local communities and online, about how women are disadvantaged respecting dating and marriage, especially because of contraception and abortion, and about how to reconnect sex with marriage and children for the good of all people.
