Being Pro Life: March & April 2020

 



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!

Mission: Human Life International is the world’s largest global pro-life apostolate, with an active network in over 100 countries. We effect necessary change by providing formation to groups that have the greatest potential to influence the structures of society.

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. It means cherishing every life, every person from the moment of their conception until their natural death. It means showing compassion to the marginalized in our society, and working diligently to help our culture recognize that EVERY PERSON is created in the image and likeness of God. Being Pro-Life means that we stand against the Culture of Death that is slowly seeping its way into our society and remain resolute in our Catholic Values that tell us that there is a loving God who has made each of us for a definite purpose. We are called to stand for one another, to support one another, and especially to defend those who are unable to defend themselves.

In this series, we will be addressing various “Pro-Life” issues in a variety of ways. Please join us as we begin a dialogue on how we can grow as a church towards BEING PROLIFE.  In October, we debuted a new monthly column in the Catholic Telegraph called Being Pro-Life.  Each month features an interview with someone personally affected by a different Respect Life Issue, with a call to action on how to get involved.  Please 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.  To check out a previous topic in our series, click on the links on the left.
