Reprotection Founder & Public Policy Analyst
Cathie Humbarger became active in the pro-life fight over 40 years ago when a friend shared her abortion experience with her. She was blessed to walk with her friend through the healing process. Cathie was also privileged to serve on the founding board of A Hope Center, the first pregnancy resource center in Fort Wayne, Indiana. Her passion is to save as many babies and mothers as possible from abortions, remembering that the Lord reached her through the broken heart of a young woman who chose abortion in her crisis pregnancy.
In her role as Vice President of Policy Enforcement for Indiana Right to Life, she organized a team of County affiliates in locations where abortionist Ulrich Klopfer operated, to enforce administrative code and laws resulting in the closure of three abortion facilities in Indiana. This expanded into a statewide coalition to gather evidence, file complaints, and provide information to authorities resulting in disciplinary action against three abortionists and the indefinite suspension of the medical license of an abortionist responsible for over 50,000 abortions.
Cathie also served 20 years as the Executive Director of Right to Life of Northeast Indiana (formerly Allen County Right to Life). In that role, she led programs to prepare students and young adults to be gracious and persuasive advocates for life, closed the local abortion business, led activists to prevent an abortion business from reopening, and was a voice for the unborn in the political arena advocating for innocent unborn boys and girls and their mothers in the Indiana Statehouse.
Cathie also serves as Director of Public Policy for Safe Haven Baby Boxes developing legislation in states to enable the installation of Safe Haven Baby Boxes.
She founded and continues to co-host “I Choose Life News & Views,” a weekly 30-minute radio program focusing on life issues. The program has aired on several stations for over 15 years.
In January of 2020, Cathie was named CEO of Reprotection, Inc. and was charged with the mission to make our nation abortion-free by closing abortion businesses one at a time. Reprotection follows the strategy she used in Indiana to hold abortionists accountable and close dangerous abortion businesses. She currently serves as Director of Public Policy.
Cathie is a native of Columbus, Indiana, and currently resides in Fort Wayne, Indiana with her husband Rick. They have three children, fourteen grandchildren, and two great-grandchildren.
