Herb Geraghty, Executive Director
Herb first joined the Rehumanize team back in 2016 as a summer intern while studying rhetoric and politics at the University of Pittsburgh and has been working in some capacity for the organization since then. When our founder stepped down in 2020, the Board of Directors chose Herb to fill the role of Executive Director. Throughout the years, Herb’s unique position as a politically independent pro-life atheist has broken down barriers to reach demographics often untapped by the mainstream pro-life movement. Similarly, Herb’s common ground on the abortion issue with many folks on the political right has enabled productive outreach on the issues of war, torture, and the death penalty. Herb is a passionate and engaging advocate for the Consistent Life Ethic who has a passion for building bridges and finding common ground with people across the political spectrum to call everyone to a greater consistency in the fight for human rights.

Beth Fox, MPH, Board President
Tiny in stature, big in ambition, Beth Fox’s life is a story worth sharing. Before she even had a name, Beth became a prime target for abortion. Her mother’s pregnancy was risky and doctors advised an abortion to preserve her life. Beth’s poor prenatal prognosis led doctors to conclude her quality of life would be so poor that having an abortion would be the “merciful” choice. Though living a life with chronic illness and disability is challenging, Beth is here to share why life is worth living and striving for. Today, Beth cannot see, walk, or breathe on her own; it is through these physical struggles, past doubts of self-value, and the diagnosis of multiple rare, life-limiting disorders that Beth has developed an active voice aimed at making positive changes. Despite her challenges, Beth lives independently in central Virginia, where she has received Master’s degrees in public health and developmental psychology, works as a tutor, vlogger, and public speaker, and aspires to become a professor and lovingly foster terminally ill children.
