Respect Life Program Materials

A child standing next to his pregnant mother.New materials are produced each year to help Catholics understand, value, and become engaged with supporting the dignity of the human person, and therefore the gift of every person's life.

Materials are developed for use in parishes, schools, and faith-based ministries, but are also suitable for individual use. The program begins anew each October (Respect Life Month) and continues through the following September.

Vaccines, Pharmaceuticals & Cosmetics

Sound Choice Pharmaceutical Institute (SCPI) was founded to promote public awareness about the widespread use of effectively aborted fetal material in drug discovery, development and commercialization. SCPI is not afraid to address issues that are polarizing and silencing our nation: the safety of vaccinations, the true promise of stem cell research, and the rights of every consumer to know what is in their products.


Cenacles of Life

A "cenacle" is a prayer that prays the way the Blessed Mother and the Apostles prayed in the Upper Room, awaiting the Holy Spirit at Pentecost. Start a cenacle in your parish and unite your prayers with the prayers of others around the United States and the world for the end to abortion.
