The year 2018 has been significant for PRI in protecting mothers and their unborn babies. Your support has helped bring an ultrasound to our family care center in Nigeria, produced a petition telling the UN, abortion is NOT a human right, and strengthened family values globally through our educational efforts. Over 500,000 visitors have already come here to find answers this year, a record year for pop.org! And, our social media outreach has brought the pro-life message of hope to millions, another record for you and your work with us!
None of this could have happened without you. And now more than ever, we need to make 2019 the strongest year to date for the pro-life movement. With the momentum now on our side, will you join with us in this work to protect life from conception till natural death?
Donate today to give the gift of life!

Indeed he is. Saint Paul VI is beloved above all for his two historic contributions to the Church: First, he promulgated Humanae Vitae, the encyclical that announced to the world that, while the “spirit of the times” might change, the truth does not. Second, he inherited the Second Vatican Council upon …

But appearances can be deceiving, especially where China is concerned. Instead of enjoying a new dawn of reproductive freedom, Chinese couples are actually being herded into something …
