Priests for Life
In the video above, Abortion Free New Mexico is working with Priests for Life to raise national awareness about late term abortion. View here or on YouTube using this link.
Every abortion is morally unacceptable, and every baby is equally deserving of protection. And restoring protection to every baby is -- like everything else in life -- a process involving many steps.
We are convinced that the first step is to expose late-term abortion, which even many "pro-choice" people oppose. Show people that healthy babies, carried by healthy mothers, are being aborted in the second and even third trimester of pregnancy.
As a Private Association of the Faithful, recognized and approved under the Canon Law of the Catholic Church, and working in harmony with the goals of the Bishops' Pro-Life Committee and the local diocesan respect life offices, Priests for Life seeks to:
- unite, encourage, and provide ongoing training to priests and deacons who give a special emphasis to the "life issues", especially abortion and euthanasia, in their ministries;
- instill a sense of urgency in all clergy to teach about these issues and to mobilize their people to help stop abortion and euthanasia;
- assist clergy and laity to work together productively for the cause of life;
- provide ongoing training and motivation to the entire pro-life movement.
