Here we give you a snapshot of some of what the Priests for Life family of ministries is doing in these days. We thank you for your support and invite you to get to know us better!

Priests for Life will air special programming in the month of April for Abortion Recovery Awareness Month with guests who are experts on the topic.  See www.EndAbortion.TV for the weekly schedule. Read our press release about this.

Rachel's Vineyard is also spreading the word that April is Abortion Recovery Awareness Month! They are equipping their teams with resources to reach out to those who might not know that programs like Rachel's Vineyard exist to provide healing after abortion. They are also preparing Dr. Burke for her presentation at the Catholic Psychotherapist Association's in New Orleans, LA at the end of April.

Priests for Life is also promoting of a major new app showing the development of the unborn child. We were privileged to organize a seminar for over 800 pregnancy center staff about the “See Baby Grow” app along with our colleagues in leadership who were crucial to the success of this effort: Greg Cunningham, Director of the Center for Bioethical Reform (CBR), Jor-El Godsey, President of Heartbeat International, Roland Warren, President and CEO of Care Net, and Thomas Glessner, Founder and President of the National Institute of Family and Life Advocates (NIFLA).

We at Priests for Life have long promoted the project, “Is This What You Mean?” This project relies on the words of abortionists themselves, obtained from medical textbooks and court testimony by practicing abortionists. The goal of this project is to reveal the nature of the abortion procedure to the public and challenge public officials, candidates, and others who support the legality of abortion to admit what abortion is.

The political outreach department has continued to host monthly election volunteer conference calls and plug pro-lifers into opportunities to make a difference in the elections in their communities. With primaries underway, there has been an increase in questions from pro-lifers wanting to engage in their civic duties – where is their polling place, how can they confirm their voter registration is up to date, when is early voting, etc. We have been hard at work answering all those questions regardless of where in the country a voter may live. Then of course, the political outreach department has been gearing up for ballot initiatives in different states and making sure our volunteers are educated and equipped to speak to fellow citizens in their respective states. Our next election volunteer zoom meeting is Tuesday, April 9, 2024.  Sign up to join us at www.ProLifeVolunteer.com

Our International Outreach is just back from the UN’s Commission on the Status of Women’s 68th Session (March 11-22). See photos here. They are preparing to take part in both the Catholic Inspired Non-Governmental strategy meeting in NY April 17 and the UN’s Commission on Population Development’s 57th Session (April 29 – May 3) for a follow-up and review of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development during the decade of action and delivery for sustainable development. 

The Parliamentary Network for Critical Issues (PNCI) – a branch of our ministry -- has been researching the World Health Organization’s proposed Pandemic Treaty to highlight the ways it will promote abortion as “essential health care” and as a so-called human right. In 2020, WHO included abortion in the list of essential health care services in the wake of COVID-19 despite the fact that a majority of countries restrict and regulate abortion. Negotiations on the pandemic agreement are ongoing and PNCI will continue to monitor.

It’s been a busy time in the Media Department. On Monday, April 1, the Florida Supreme Court upheld the state’s law protecting babies from abortion at 15 weeks, thus allowing the state’s Heartbeat Law to go into effect, protecting babies even earlier – at about six weeks. That was great news. But the Court also ruled in favor of allowing a referendum to be placed on the ballot this November that aims to invent a right to abortion in the state constitution. Abortion advocates in states that have passed similar measures are busy dismantling every law that protects babies and mothers. We sent out a press release with comments on both decisions from National Director Frank Pavone and Executive Director Janet Morana. The split decision will be the top story on the April 5 edition of ProLife PrimeTime News.

Our National Director and administrative team have released findings from our recently commissioned national Priests for Life/McLaughlin poll regarding the American people's views on abortion, how it shapes their voting decisions regarding candidates as well as statewide abortion ballot initiatives. See www.AbortionSurvey.org.

Priests for Life, Bishop Joseph Strickland and Catholic Online are partnering to create an Online Pro-Life University.  Find out more at www.ProLifeUniversity.org.

The data department is reviewing the responses that have come in from the annual survey we send to our donors. The responses are read and entered, and the results analyzed, so that Priests for Life can better communicate with our supporters.  We are grateful to everyone who shares their input.  The surveys can also be submitted online at www.priestsforlife.org/survey

Priests for Life is training clergy online with our Good Shepherd Project, helping them to equip them as courageous and compassionate advocates for the unborn and for healing the wounds of abortion. The seminars air on www.EndAbortion.TV and all of the platforms linked from that page.  You can listen to past seminars at www.TheGoodShepherdProject.com.
