CBR's projects include the Genocide Awareness Project, the Reproductive "Choice" Campaign, the Corporate Accountability Project, and the Church Project.

CBR also publishes educational resources and conducts seminars to establish the humanity of the preborn and the inhumanity of abortion.

CBR was founded in July of 1990 as a privately-funded, non-profit educational corporation.

CBR operates on the principle that abortion represents an evil so inexpressible that words fail us when attempting to describe its horror. Until abortion is seen, it will never be understood.

CBR is strictly non-violent. We oppose violence against babies and against the abortionists who kill them. Just as Dr. Martin Luther King sought to create a "creative tension" to awaken the nation to the horrible injustice of segregation, we too are creating a "creative tension" to awaken the nation to the horrible injustice of abortion.
