Described as a "one-stop news source featuring up to the minute coverage on core life issues," the news service compiles stories from a wide variety of news sources on abortion, euthanasia, embryonic stem cell research, traditional marriage, pornography and human cloning. It is published in both English and Spanish.
Founder Brian Follett said this the news service is a natural extension of Heroic Media: "Heroic Media has always had two goals: to provide women facing unexpected pregnancies with hopeful alternatives through mass media advertising and to create a Culture of Life. With Heroic News, we can directly engage in the culture-building work of shaping the news environment.”
Jennifer Uebbing, the editor of the English edition, said she is excited to be part of this newest facet of evangelization. "Heroic News is the long-awaited answer to mainstream media's one-dimensional coverage of the most pressing issues of our time," she said. "Heroic speaks into the intellectual and moral void of online news, bringing fresh, relevant and critical content to a world hungry for truth."
Alejandro Lostaunau, editor of Noticias Heroicas, the Spanish version of Heroic News, is confident that the service will be useful for many life and family organizations: "From Spain, where these issues play a key cultural role, to Costa Rica, which has one of the strongest pro-life and pro-family traditions, these issues are paramount to faithful Christians. Noticias Heroicas keeps them informed and engaged."
