Priests for Life Announces Respect Life Month Resources


Priests for Life

  Priests for Life Outlines Strategic Actions for Pro-life Month Taking its cue from a series of studies recently done on the attitudes of the American people on abortion, Priests for Life is proposing a number of concrete steps for parishes to take to move their people to a more strong and active pro-life position. The strategy focuses attention on what people find most troubling about the status quo regarding abortion, such as a) the reasons women give for obtaining them, and b) the timing of the abortions. Priests for Life has taken facts from pro-abortion sources and translated them into three new resources: 1) bulletin inserts; 2) a booklet on how to preach about abortion, and 3) educational drawings depicting the D and E (dilatation and evacuation) procedure, used for late-term abortions (This item will be released in 2000.) Priests for Life is also urging pastors to permanently place on the cover of their parish bulletin a phone number which would refer people to alternatives to abortion. Pastors can choose such a number from a variety of local or national hotlines.
