Pro-life evangelist Nick Vujicic, known as the man without limbs, is starting a pro-life bank.
Vujicic told The Christian Post that he was disturbed to learn that most banks donate part of their profits to Planned Parenthood and other abortion groups.
He believes Christians need to do more to stop abortion, and, with a background in finance, he and Betsy Gray, the executive director of Network Medical Women’s Center, decided to create a bank that donates only to life-affirming causes.
Vujicic, the founder of Life Without Limbs, said he cannot imagine just how much money banks have donated toward the killing of unborn babies in abortions in America.

“Most banks — 90%, in fact — give philanthropically toward abortion,” he told the news outlet.
He described ProLife Bank as a “for-giving” bank, which will donate half of its net profits to “Judeo-Christian-aligned nonprofit organizations to further the Kingdom of God.”
“Just like Noah’s saved lives, so we’re going to save lives with ProLife Bank,” he said. “It’s based on the understanding that God wants to take back His role and redistribute it through His faithful students.”
Their project thus far has not been easy, though.
Vujicic said it began, in part, in 2019 when he received a letter from a major bank telling him that it did not want to affiliate with him or his business. He said he later learned that the same bank donates to pro-abortion groups.
Here’s more from the report:
So when presented with the idea of a pro-life bank, he was intrigued — but asked Gray to give him three months to pray with his wife over the decision. During those three months, the father-of-four shared, he faced spiritual assault like never before.
“My world turned upside down,” he recalled. “We had a grenade at our house; I had a false article published in a gay magazine that I fired someone from being gay. I had a lawsuit threat against me by somebody internationally. I had a spy drone above my house, and I got kicked out of a bank, all within a matter of 16 weeks after that prayer.”
Gray said she brought the idea to Vujicic after her non-profit medical clinic in Santa Barbara, California, struggled to find a bank that did not support the killing of unborn babies in abortions.
“After three weeks of research, our board treasurer was quite shocked to report: there was NOT such a bank in our city,” Gray said. “After much lamenting and prayer, I felt called by God to start a pro-life bank that not only supports the lives of unborn children but also is aligned with all of God’s principles – and ProLifeBank (Proposed) was born.”
Vujicic said he wants to “rattle the cages of the Church” on abortion after about 63 million unborn babies have been killed in the U.S. — many of them children of professing Christians.
He told the Christian Post that he believes American Christians are “sleeping” and persecution is coming.
“I think America is going to have a rude awakening,” he said. “Those of us who don’t face the music, who don’t correct the unrighteousness … We’ve forgotten to teach them meat. We feel this is the time as Christians to come together and ask God to forgive us of the sins of our land.”
