Lois Cunningham, R.N.
Director of Crisis Pregnancy Outreach
Lois Cunningham is the Deputy Director for the Center for Bio-Ethical Reform. She also serves as CBR’s Director of Crisis Pregnancy Outreach and as International Liaison.
Mrs. Cunningham is a public health nurse with a background in school nursing and maternal/fetal health. She helped establish two pregnancy help medical clinics in Los Angeles County (in Glendale and Hollywood) and served from 1988 to 1995 as the Executive Director. The Pregnancy Help Clinic of Glendale was one of the first pregnancy centers to convert to medical clinic status, and Mrs. Cunningham was eager to freely share the written policies and procedures with other centers. Mrs. Cunningham has offered consultation to pregnancy help centers in the U.S. and the U.K., training them to convert to medical clinics and to be more effective in reaching the community and meeting the needs of abortion-vulnerable women.
Mrs. Cunningham directed a task force to establish Choices Medical Clinic (CMC), which opened December 6, 1999, and is located in Wichita, Kansas. This clinic was located next door to a notorious late-term abortionist, and CMC is still serving women today.
She is blessed to be the mother of three daughters and the wife of CBR Executive Director, Gregg Cunningham.
Fletcher Armstrong, Ph.D.
Director, CBR Southeast
Fletcher Armstrong received a B.S. in Engineering from the University of Tennessee in 1980 and a Ph.D. in Engineering from Clemson University in 1987. He has extensive management experience, having planned, budgeted, and directed projects up to $2.3 million for government and commercial clients. Reporting to the CEO of a national environmental services firm, he directed the production of proposals for multimillion-dollar contracts.
Fletcher is formerly the President of Tennessee Right to Life (TRL), Knox County Chapter. By aggressively implementing the principles taught in CBR’s Reinventing the Pro-Life Movement seminar, the Chapter doubled its budget and staff over a 1 1/2-year period. More importantly, the Chapter presented the visual Harder Truth about abortion to literally thousands of people–both young and old, Christian and secular. Despite the normal amount of fear and trepidation, the Knox County Chapter was the first Right-to-Life affiliate to host CBR’s Genocide Awareness Project (GAP) on a university campus (University of Tennessee, November 1998).
Fletcher is a student of the Old Testament, having taught Bible studies on Daniel and Revelation. His favorite study is “Jesus in the Old Testament,” in which he highlights major prophecies of the Messiah of Israel, both as declared by the prophets (e.g., Isaiah 53) and as “pre-enacted” by OT characters (e.g., Genesis 22:1-19; Numbers 21:4-9; and Ruth). The books of Jeremiah and Ezekiel compel Fletcher’s commitment to stop the killing of unborn children. In these books, God revealed why He judged Israel–it was because they systematically slaughtered their own innocent children (Jer. 19:4-9, 32:35-36; Ezekial 16:20-21, 35-41; and also Psalm 106:34-41).
Fletcher is a 7th-generation Tennessean and a member of Tennessee’s First Families. He lives in Knoxville with his wife Becky and son Chad. He is an unrepentant Southeastern Conference football fanatic. His idea of nirvana is to share an autumn Saturday afternoon with 85,000 of his closest friends!
Director, CBR Southwest
Abra Singleton was raised in a Christian pro-life home. Except for debating abortion online and attending a few protests, she was not very active in the movement. It wasn’t until she became pregnant with her daughter in 2013 that a passion was ignited in her to actively fight to end abortion. Seeing her daughter’s ultrasound cemented in her mind how unnatural it is for a mother to abort her child.
Abra began volunteering for a pro-life organization, raising money, handing out pamphlets, selling tickets to pro-life events, and conducting research. She also attended speaking engagements, marches, and protests. She began sidewalk counseling in September 2015, and that is when she met and befriended many more people in the movement.
She has always believed in the use of abortion victim photography, which is what attracted her to CBR. Abra applied for the position of Southwest Regional Director after an activist friend of hers gave her a flyer regarding the opening. Abra left her career as a case manager in June 2017 to join the full-time staff of CBR.
Fighting to end abortion on a full-time basis is a dream come true for Abra.
Abra has a Bachelor’s in Human Services/Management, and has years of experience working with vulnerable populations.

Director, CBR Hawaii
Steve Holck has been an activist in the pro life movement for over 18 years.
Prior to that, he thought abortion was OK and was personally responsible for many. Then he saw the graphic pictures of abortion which shocked him into an in-depth investigation of exactly what abortion did to a child. He remembered back to the 70’s when he was told by Planned Parenthood staff that there was no pregnancy and there was just a blob of tissue to be removed. He realized that they had actually lied to him.
After years of pain following the realization of what he caused and the damage that had been done, he embarked and collaborated with every pro life group in Hawaii and the Nation – from Pregnancy Centers to Right to Life groups to the Marches for Life and legislative lobbying. Steve founded Aloha Pregnancy Care & Counseling Centers in 1998 and served as President of the Board for several years. Over 3,000 babies have been saved through this important work.
Frustrated at the slowness of the pro-life movement, Steve discovered CBR and joined the organization because it is one of the best, hardest-hitting, most devoted group of people devoted to social change with regards to abortion in the United States today.
Fighting abortion is a spiritual battle as well. His lovely wife, Wendy, who joined him in battle, was killed by birth control pill hormones used to help her menopause issues: www.preventDVT.org
As soon as abortion is criminalized, Steve will return to surfing at Waikiki.
Steve is a graduate of the University of Hawaii and the Kamehameha Schools. Steve left the corporate world several years ago to concentrate full time on the fight for the life of the innocent.
President, Canadian Centre for Bio-Ethical Reform
Nick Rosendal became active in the pro-life movement through Lethbridge Students for Life at the University of Lethbridge. During his five years at the university, Nick volunteered for the campus pro-life club, including serving the club as treasurer, and completed a Management degree, majoring in Accounting. It was through Lethbridge Students for Life that Nick first came into contact with CCBR staff. Their direct approach of revealing the reality of abortion combined with a vast amount of knowledge and experience in the pro-life movement inspired Nick to remain involved and volunteer his time for CCBR, as well as serve as a board member for the Lethbridge & District Pro-Life Association.
After six years of working in public practice with a local accounting firm and the completion of the Chartered Accountants School of Business program, Nick officially earned his professional designation as a Chartered Accountant in November of 2012. With a desire to make a difference for pre-born children, he decided to commit his talents and work experience to end abortion in Canada by seeking employment with CCBR. He first joined staff as Financial and Managerial Advisor.
Since the summer of 2014, Nick serves as the Canadian Centre for Bio-Ethical Reform’s president.
