What does it mean to be Pro-Life?

 

In today’s turbulently political world, the word “Pro-Life” seems to go hand and hand with those who work hard to fight against abortion; however, Being Pro-Life means so much more. Follow us on Social Media, read our article in the Catholic Telegraph, watch the video interviews, and listen to the podcast so that we can all come to a better understanding of what BEING PROLIFE really means.

THIS MONTH’S TOPIC: International Issues- Part 1

Respect Life issues are in many ways the same across most of the world. Catholics and other people of good will struggle against the legalization and acceptance of abortion, and of assisted suicide. They struggle with government-issued regulations about sex-education in schools, even in Catholic schools. And they struggle with issues of religious freedom, from the lack of any hope to change a law or even the ability to speak against injustice. Check out a new video each week as we talk with people on every inhabited continent in the world. Even if you are unhappy with our government on many issues, you may find yourself grateful that we do have a lot more freedom than anyone else we spoke with to still live out our faith, even in areas where those freedoms are not supported by our laws. To hear each person’s full interviews, follow our weekly Podcasts on the platforms above!

Our Five Most Popular Page Views Last Month

 

#1 40 Days for Life

Shawn Carney, President of 40 Days for Life, and Abby Johnson, former Planned Parenthood facility director, share about what 40 Days for Life is, and why we know it is effective in changing the hearts of parents and workers about abortion. We also talk with local leaders Peter Range from Toledo, Jenny Belokonny from Dayton and Mary Clark of Cincinnati about inspiring conversion stories and how to sign up for your local campaign.

 

 

#2 Mental Illness

Mental illness is pervasive in our workplaces, churches, schools, communities, and homes. A person living with mental illness faces daily and often invisible challenges. We talk with Deacon Ed Shoener, founder of the Catholic Mental Health Institute, Chris Miller, CO-Chair of the Council on Mental Illness and Peter Capobianco, about what it is like to live with mental illness, and how individuals and parishes can start a ministry for those suffering with mental illness.

 

 

#3 Palliative Care

December’s topic is Palliative Care. We talk with Denise Hess, Executive Director of the Supportive Care Coalition, as well as a Dr. Tim Jessick, DO and Katalin Vogt, MSW, a physician and social worker who serve on a palliative care team, about what palliative care is, how it is much broader than end-of-life and pain management, how well it fits in with Catholic teaching, and how anyone can get involved in spreading the word.

 

 

#4 Abortion Pill Reversal

This topic focuses on the Abortion Pill Reversal. We speak with Dr. George Delgado, founder of Abortion Pill Rescue, who explains the process of how a woman who changes her mind after taking the RU486 pill, can receive treatment to save her baby. We also speak with Rebekah and Sarah, clients who share their stories of how they saved their babies. Finally, we hear from Dr. Ann Moell, a local doctor and member of the Abortion Pill Reversal network. The video ends by sharing ways anyone can help get the word out and make the treatment available to more mothers who are looking for a second choice.

 

 

#5 Deaf & Blind Ministry

The topic is Welcoming the Deaf and Blind in our Parish Communities. We speak with Adam Frazier, teacher and campus minister at St. Rita’s School for the Deaf, and Mary Ann Barth, who is deaf, and has done a lot of ministry with the deaf community both locally and internationally. We also speak with Chris Sabine, who is blind, about his experience as an active member of a local parish, and how parishes can be more accommodating and welcoming to the blind and visually impaired at their parishes today.
