NEW YORK, NY – EWTN viewers will get an inside look at the important work being done by Priests for Life and Gospel of Life Ministries when the 24th season of Defending Life has its premiere this week.

Hosted by Janet Morana, Executive Director of Priests for Life and co-founder of the Silent No More Awareness Campaign, and Father Denis Wilde, OSA, Associate Director of Priests for Life, the show will air at 2:30 a.m. ET every Wednesday and 11 p.m. ET every Thursday. Those tuning in by radio can hear the show at 6:30 p.m. Saturday and 5 a.m. Sunday.

The new season’s 13 episodes will introduce viewers to the Priests for Life Pastoral Team, including Bryan Kemper, the Youth Outreach Director, and Dr. Alveda King, Director of African American Outreach. Gospel of Life Ministries’ work around the globe will be highlighted by Bob Lalonde, Director of International Outreach for Priests for Life and Gospel of Life Ministries. Mr. Lalonde also will discuss the work of the Parliamentary Network for Critical Issues, which falls under Gospel of Life Ministries. Mrs. Morana’s book “Recall Abortion” will be explored.

Other guests to appear during the season will include Wendy Wright of the Catholic Family and Human Rights Institute, and Monica Miller of Citizens for a Pro-Life Society and author of “Abandoned,” who will discuss her work in recovering the bodies of aborted babies. Couples who have shared an abortion experience and now speak out as part of the Silent No More Awareness Campaign will be featured in the season’s final two episodes.

Defending Life was born from a conversation Mother Angelica and I had in 1994,” Father Pavone recalled. “We were in her office discussing my pro-life work. She told me, ‘We need to have you tape a series on abortion!’ She picked up the phone right then and there, talked to one of the producers, and we scheduled it!”

Here’s some feedback Defending Life has received from viewers over the years.

“I had my own terrible experience with abortion years ago, but have experienced healing through Christ with His Church. I am a big fan of Father Pavone and enjoy watching Defending Life on EWTN. Thank you so much for your words of love and encouragement and hope.”

“I heard your TV program. I am a retired attorney and I work hard to save the lives of unborn children and the elderly. Your program put great arguments in my mind and I will use them.”

“The night before I was going to have an abortion, something woke me up and I saw your Defending Life program. Now I’m having my baby.”

Mrs. Morana noted that leaders of pro-life groups have told her they use the show to open their meetings and jump-start their planning on various projects.

“Every show contains good information that groups can adapt to their own needs,” she said. “Priests for Life also has resources that are available to the public to help individuals and groups increase their pro-life activism. In turn, we ask those groups to help us promote the show by announcing it on their social media sites and in their parishes.”

New season of “Defending Life” debuts July 31 on EWTN

Priests for Life

July 24, 2013

Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, has announced that an exciting new season of “Defending Life” featuring dynamic guests and provocative topics will begin airing July 31 on EWTN.

Janet Morana, Executive Director of Priests for Life, and Father Scott Daniels, O.P., a Priest Associate of the ministry, will co-host this 23rd Season, which will air at 2:30 a.m. Wednesdays and 11 p.m. Thursdays. Additional broadcast times and other information is at DefendingLife.TV.

Defending Life is the longest-running and farthest-reaching series on abortion ever produced by either side of the abortion debate. It airs on the world’s largest religious media outlet. Fr. Frank Pavone began taping it in 1994 at the personal invitation of EWTN Foundress Mother Angelica.

In one episode, Mrs. Morana and Father Daniels will take an unflinching look at D&E abortion, the dismemberment procedure most often performed in the second trimester of pregnancy. This topic is particularly relevant today as more states pass laws to protect children from abortion after 20 weeks of development.

Another episode focuses on Mrs. Morana’s new book, “Recall Abortion,” and the double meaning of the word “recall” as in “remember” and as in removing a harmful product from the market.

And in a third episode, you will hear Naomi Barber King, sister-in-law of Martin Luther King Jr. , make history as she declares in Washington, DC that the “Beloved Community” includes the unborn child!

Other guests in this season include Peggy Hartshorn, president of Heartbeat International; Charmaine Yoest, president and CEO of Americans United for Life; Jeanneane Maxon, former general counsel for Carenet, and Victoria Hearst, granddaughter of media magnate William Randolph Hearst, who will discuss her transition from pro-choice to pro-life. Monsignor Philip Reilly, founder of the Helpers of God’s Precious Infants, will talk about his ministry, and David Rosa, a post-abortive dad, will discuss a powerful new movement to acknowledge the regret men feel for involvement in abortion.

“We are very excited about this season,” said Mrs. Morana, who is also the co-founder of the Silent No More Awareness Campaign and co-host of EWTN’s “The Catholic View for Women.” “Viewers will learn more about topics in the forefront of today’s pro-life movement. They will gain powerful talking points and a clearer understanding that abortion is the real war against women,” she said.

Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, said each season is designed to provide a realistic look at the many dimensions of the tragedy of abortion, and the progress the pro-life movement is making to counteract it.

“Our goal is to energize and empower every viewer to go out and redouble their efforts on behalf of the unborn,” Father Pavone said. “We are winning this fight!”

Recall Abortion offers a unique look at America’s most divisive issue

Wednesday, January 2nd, 2013

SPACER
recall-abortionAmericans are savvy consumers. When a product does not live up to its promise, we boycott, we sue and finally, we demand a government recall. Forty years ago, Americans were sold a new product: Legal abortion. We were assured that legal, accessible abortion on demand was needed to elevate the rights of women and improve the lives of children. We believed these lies and we lined up outside clinics to buy this product.

But abortion has exploited women, not empowered them. Abortion has allowed us to see children as commodities whose very existence depends on our whim. Abortion has killed more than 50 million unborn Americans and left millions of their mothers wounded, emotionally and physically.

Isn’t it time to recall abortion?

Recall Abortion, the first book by longtime pro-life activist Janet Morana, examines the societal changes that led to legal abortion and the lies that ensure it continues to be one of the most common medical procedures for women. Through research, interviews with medical professionals and testimonies of women who have had abortions, Ms. Morana takes apart the myth that abortion is safe and necessary health-care and shows the abortion industry for what it is: A profit-driven, unscrupulous and often criminal enterprise that victimizes women.

Catholic author and syndicated talk-show host Teresa Tomeo believes Recall Abortion “will put abortion right where it belongs, on a worldwide ‘Hall of Shame’ episode and the top of the recall list.” Wendy Wright of the Catholic Family and Human Rights Institute (C-FAM) says the book “provides a compelling case against the primary selling points for abortion.”

The book will be available Jan. 22 from St. Benedict’s Press and can be pre-ordered now for $20 per copy at PriestsforLife.org/store

In his foreword for Recall Abortion, Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, wrote: “If we start with a listening heart and a dose of good will, we can see a common question bridging the pro-life, pro-choice divide and uniting those who care about women. The question is: What does abortion do to those who undergo it? What kind of promises does it make, and does it deliver on those promises?

Those questions, which cut right to the heart of the abortion debate, are answered in Recall Abortion.

Janet Morana is the executive director of Priests for Life, co-founder of the Silent No More Awareness Campaign, and co-host of EWTN’s “Defending Life” and “The Catholic View for Women.” To arrange an interview, call Leslie Palma or Andre Kim at 347-286-7277 or send an email to media@priestsforlife.org
