OUR WORK

We defend both the God-given life and dignity of all human persons from conception until natural death, and the natural family based on marriage—defined as a lifetime union between one man and one woman, a union that is open to life.

As followers of Jesus Christ and members of the Catholic Church, our goal is to build a Culture of Life and of Love around the world through education, outreach, and advocacy, providing pro-life training and resources worldwide.

Products That Use Aborted Fetuses

By Andrea Byrnes | April 23rd, 2019 | Categories: Abortion

Do some products contain fetal parts? The short gruesome answer: Yes. Today’s consumer products are not the soap and lampshades of recycled Nazi concentration camp victims. The new utilitarian use of people is a sophisticated enterprise, not visible to the human eye. Read more…

Church Teachings on Euthanasia

By | June 2nd, 2020 | Categories: Euthanasia

There can be no doubt that euthanasia is contrary to the will of God. Scripture is replete with references about how God created us; how He has a purpose for each of us; how He reserves the right to call us home; and how our suffering in this life purifies us and prepares us to spend eternity with Him in Heaven.  Read more…

By | May 26th, 2020 | Categories: Abortion

Excommunication is a sanction that deprives a Catholic of all participation in the common blessings of the society of the Church. The excommunicated person remains a Catholic because his baptism cannot be nullified, but he is a kind of spiritual exile, removed from the benefits enjoyed by the members of the Church.  Read more…
