Priests for Life continues to expand its educational activities promoting the culture of life - - helping to help protect innocent human life from abortion and restoring respect for all human life.

Based on Pope John Paul II's call for a culture of life and the American Catholic Bishops 2003 statement, Faithful Citizenship: A Catholic Call to Political Responsibility, Priests for Life has developed a variety of new educational materials to help protect innocent human life from abortion, infanticide, physician assisted suicide, embryonic stem cell research, and euthanasia.

Recently, Priests for Life has introduced a new video called Defending Life Series 2004, which contains 13 half-hour TV programs recorded for the Eternal Word Television Network (EWTN). These programs feature a variety of pro-life leaders and focus on how Christians can help create a culture of life in their local community.

Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, also serves as President of the National Pro-Life Religious Council (NPRC) which is an association of pro-life groups working within a variety of different religious denominations. NPRC is a growing vibrant association which has recently added several new groups, including two groups that work within the African-American community.

In addition, Priests for Life helped found and is continuing to support the Silent No More group which is made up of women who have experienced the personal tragedy of abortion.

Another important addition to Fr. Pavone's activities is a pro-life outreach to the broader Christian community through a weekly pro-life program entitled the Gospel of Life, which is aired on the Sky Angel television network. This program, featuring a variety of guests, focuses on the full range of culture of life issues and is having a dramatic impact on American Christians.
