Priests for Life on the
Volume 2, Number 2 - March 2006
More issues of Frontlines
Dear Friends of Life,
Welcome to another edition of Frontlines!
Along with our pastoral team, some of whose nationwide travels you read about here on Frontlines, and our large staff, we also have a dedicated team of volunteers who serve our needs at our various offices in New York, Washington DC, Amarillo, Philadelphia, and Rome. In this edition of Frontlines, I am happy to share with you this gallery of some of our New York volunteers -- young and old alike. Thanks to them, many of you receive our mailings, our tapes and our brochures. Click here to see the gallery.

At the Statehouse
Priests for Life does not only influence national policy and legislation on abortion, but does so at the state level too. Pastoral Associate Jim Pinto lives in Birmingham, Alabama, and one of his many activities is to help carry out this work together with the Alabama Christian Coalition and many other activists. Here you see Jim at the Alabama Statehouse, with legislators and representatives of the Christian Coalition, lobbying on behalf of a bill that will protect unborn victims of violence.
Coretta Scott King
Together with our Associate Director Janet Morana, I attended memorial services for Coretta Scott King at the end of January. I was able to bless her body and greet her family, because one of her family members, Alveda King, is on our pastoral staff. Alveda led one of the prayers at the memorial service, praising God as the giver of all life. As speaker after speaker told the crowds that the vision and work of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and his wife Coretta must still be carried on, many of us thought about what that means for the unborn. The pro-life movement is indeed the civil rights movement of our day. Justice and equality are marching forward for the unborn. Right: Alveda King
Silent No More in the "Abortion Capital"
The December issue of New York Magazine called New York "The Abortion Capital of America." Right in the midst of that "capital," the women of the Silent No More Awareness Campaign, a project of Priests for Life and Anglicans for Life, bore public witness, on the sidewalks, to the pain of their abortions and to the healing power of the Gospel of Christ. Janet Morana, our Associate Director, co-founded this campaign along with Georgette Forney, President of Anglicans for Life, and they coordinate gatherings like this across America.

National Religious Broadcasters
A highlight of February for me was the annual, national convention of the National Religious Broadcasters, held in Dallas, Texas. As a member of this organization, I attend the conference every year. Jerry Horn, our director of Media Relations, was with me, and we announced our new radio program, Life on the Line. We were, as usual, very well received, and one of the few organizations present that focus specifically on ending abortion. Click here to see the gallery.
