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.

Our Five Most Popular Page Views Last Month


#1 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.



#2 Foster Care

November’s topic in our Being Pro Life series is Foster Care. We talk with Warren County Children’s Services about the need for foster families; we also hear from a current foster family and a teen in need of a family.



#3 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.



#4 Capital Punishment

This month’s topic for Being Pro Life is Capital Punishment. Part 1 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. Part 2 features an interview with Bill Pelke who shares his experience of the murder of his grandmother, and his work to help families of murder victims find healing through forgiveness, rather than more death.



#5 Human Trafficking

Tonya Folks 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.
