National Right to Life

Wednesday, June 27th, 2012






 

From June 27-30, the National Right to Life convention will be held in Crystal City, VA. Hundreds of pro-life activists will gather from around the country to sharpen their skills in talking about abortion, lobbying for pro-life laws, electing pro-life candidates, and healing those wounded by abortion. Just as important, these pro-life people will strengthen one another with their sharing of information, experience, and encouragement.

The National Right to Life Committee is one of the most respected and effective lobbying groups in the United States, as acknowledged by supporters of abortion as well as opponents. National Right to Life has also played an irreplaceable role in getting pro-life candidates elected to public office, and then keeping them pro-life once they get there.

New Knowledge about Fetal Pain

Thursday, November 11th, 2010





In the time since Roe v Wade, scientists have learned a lot more about the ability of the child in the womb to feel pain. At the time of Roe, doctors thought that newborn children could not feel pain, and the only anesthetic they received was adhesive tape, to keep them still.

Now, however, we have much more evidence about how these young bodies respond to pain, and Nebraska has even passed a law saying that once the child can feel pain, the state can protect that child from being aborted. Hence abortions there have been banned after 20 weeks of pregnancy.

The National Right to Life Committee provides model legislation for other states that want to adopt it. Abortion is always wrong, but we should use every measure that will help reduce it.

Crunch Time is Here: Mobilization Efforts Are Needed!

Thursday, October 28th, 2010





In elections, it is not the candidate who is right on the issues who necessarily wins, nor even the candidate with whom most people agree. Nor is it the candidate with the most money, nor the one who is ahead in the polls.

Rather, the candidate wins who has the higher number of people actually cast their vote.

That is why between now and Election Day it is crucial for each of us to focus on mobilizing more and more votes, on getting people to vote early, and on actually going door to door with election literature. Organize youth groups and other efforts to go throughout your neighborhood with a pro-life message about the importance of the election. Remember, the pro-abortion forces are doing this — we must not fail to do it ourselves.

Fr. Pavone on the Death of Dr. Mildred Jefferson

Monday, October 18th, 2010





Fr. Frank Pavone, speaking on behalf of Priests for Life and the National Pro-life Religious Council, issued the following statement today regarding the death of Dr. Mildred Jefferson:

“Dr. Mildred Jefferson was a constant inspiration to me both before and after I became National Director of Priests for Life. In recent years, I especially enjoyed talking with her about the history of the movement and the strategies for the future. She always spoke about the movement with a fresh enthusiasm, vision, and readiness to carry out the work. She did not carry her many years of service as a burden, but as a source of strength! May we all drink of that same spirit!

Moreover, her passing should remind us of our duty to reflect on and record the history of our movement, and pass it on to the younger generations of pro-life activists. Those who have brought the pro-life movement to where it is now will not be with us forever, and their wisdom is a treasure which we should explore while we still have the opportunity to do so.”
