Is Priests for Life Just for Priests?

No! Priests for Life is for everyone who wants to stop abortion and euthanasia. While primary membership is for Catholic bishops, priests and deacons, there is also a lay auxiliary membership for those who want to benefit from educational resources and networking among other pro-lifers. We also rejoice when ministers and faithful from other denominations associate themselves with our work and provide mutual support.

Working with laity has been an important concern of Priests For Life from the beginning. Besides motivating priests, we train and encourage the laity, and link up their initiatives and projects with the leadership of the clergy. Lay groups appreciate how important that leadership is, yet often feel they don't have enough of it. Priests for Life can provide that connection.

But isn't every priest for life?

Yes! Responding to the crises of abortion and euthanasia is not something added onto the life and ministry of the priest; instead, it is a response that flows from the very meaning of being a priest, a Christian, and a human person. Defense of the human person is integral to the ordained ministry, not something optional or extra. This is not an association that seeks to be some sort of separate and elite group of priests who claim to be more pro-life than all the rest. Rather, it seeks to celebrate the dedicated efforts, so often hidden and unknown, of priests who heroically promote the culture of life across the nation.

All priests must preach clearly and compassionately from the pulpit about the life issues, and organize their people to direct their energies to the defense of the most vulnerable among us.
