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.
