Being ProLife

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.

#2 Abortion Pill Reversal

This is the 14th episode in our series from the Office for Respect Life Ministries called Being Pro Life. The topic is Abortion Pill Rescue. 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.

#3 Human Trafficking

In this episode we will hear from Tonya Folks who is the Human Trafficking Liaison at the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office. She shares stories of the harsh reality of human sex trafficking right here in Southwest Ohio, how easily minors and young adults can be manipulated into it, and dispels myths of how adults who appear to be simply choosing the lifestyle, are actually victims of traffickers. She closes with several practical ways on how to help.

 

#4 Racism

This is the sixth episode in a monthly series from the Office for Respect Life Ministries of the Archdiocese of Cincinnati called Being Pro-life. This month’s episode features interviews with several people, who share stories of their experiences with racism.

This month’s episode features interviews with several guests, who share their stories of what it is like to bring a child with autism spectrum disorder to church, specifically Catholic Mass, and religious education.
