To address the “slippery slope” of diminished respect for life found in the United States, the American bishops established the National Office of Respect Life more than 20 years ago.
Catholic Charities seeks to educate and raise awareness about abortion and other human life issues. It sponsors events and activities such as the annual March for Life, National Night of Prayer for Life, post-abortion healing services, and prayer services.
