Being ProLife


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.





Starting this month, our Being Pro Life Podcast will be airing a NEW EPISODE EVERY WEEK!

LISTEN or SUBSCRIBE via any of the platforms below:



THIS MONTH’S TOPIC: 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. 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.

Our Five Most Popular Page Views Last Month


#1 Ministry for the Blind & the Deaf

Part One features an interview 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.

Part Two features Chris Sabine, who is blind. He shares 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.


#2 Autism: The Invisible Disorder

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. They encourage people to be more understanding and inviting, rather than treat them as disturbing and unwelcome. They also share ways parishes can be more prepared to serve these families, including how to make Mass more friendly.



#3 Capital Punishment

Part One features an interview with Joe D’Ambrosio, a man who spent 22 years on death row for a crime he did not commit. With him is Fr. Neil Kookoothe, a priest who saw the lack of evidence in his case, and worked to have his case dismissed. It ends with ways you can get involved in the work towards abolishing the death penalty, especially in Ohio.

Part Two features an interview with Bill Pelke, a man whose grandmother was brutally murdered by a group of teens, one of whom was sentenced to death, at only 16 years old. Bill talks about his conversion experience against the death penalty, and how the young woman’s sentence was ultimately changed to life in prison. It ends with ways you can get involved with his organization, Journey of Hope, which helps families of murder victims find healing through love and forgiveness, rather than death.


#4 Abortion & Pregnancy Care Centers

This interview with Magalia highlights her sad experience with an abortion center, and the positive work that a pregnancy care center did for her during her pregnancy, and continues to do for her years after the birth of her child. It closes with the many different ways you can help your local pregnancy center continue to help women and save lives.



#5 Assisted Suicide Is Not Healthcare

This interview with Kristen Hanson highlights her experience with her husband’s final years with terminal brain cancer. Through that challenging journey, she and her husband learned a lot about the dangers assisted suicide bring to society and what it can mean for people who have no interest in it. It closes with ways you can get involved in the fight against its legalization.
