We use our commitment to the sanctity of every human life and our hope for humanity to advocate and serve so that the people of the Greater Philadelphia area will experience the joy realized in a Culture of Life. We foster a cohesive vision and strategy for a Culture of Life across Greater Philadelphia, which is realized through member organizations that share our beliefs in Philadelphia, Bucks, Chester, Delaware, and Montgomery counties.

Belief Statements

Our beliefs, expressed through the work of our member organizations, are incarnated in a variety of ways: in the context of the family and through service to those who are in need of help as they make the choice for life; through sharing by way of education and outreach; and through Culture of Life attitudes toward public policy at the local, state and federal level.

  1. We believe that through the grace of Almighty God and through our good stewardship our culture will be transformed and so we serve in a spirit of hope.

  2. We believe in the sanctity of all human life, from the moment of conception until the moment of natural death.

  3. We believe that there is a need for prophetic voices within the institutions of our area and in the community at large, voices that speak the truth with love on behalf of marriage, family, and the rights of children.

  4. We believe that it is essential for those who take up the work of the pro-life movement to remain united in our vision and strategy so that our mission is realized in every generation and that we treat all people with honor and respect.

  5. We believe that building strategic relationships with leaders in government, religious institutions, community organizations and the business community is essential to our mission.

Your support of the Pro-Life Union enables us to support initiatives and member organizations active across our areas of activity in alternatives, education and outreach, and public policy.

    Listening to their stories

    On this beautiful, warm Monday morning we had the opportunity to talk with women as they entered Planned Parenthood in Center City. The hustle and bustle of City was the background to quiet conversations about life and choices.  Nearly every woman happily took the card explaining fetal development and many were open to talking with us for a few minutes. Women shared their reasons for visiting, most are unaware that over 5,000 abortions are performed there each year.  Inevitably, they grimace when we share this truth. One young woman shared the problems caused by the birth control she had been using, which included panic attacks and depression. She welled up as we confirmed that others experienced  the same side effects.  Planned Parenthood promises easy access to birth control and abortion. They sell sex without commitment and convince too many that there won't be any side effects.  But, when we listen to the experience of many women another story is told, one of regret and pain.  And, so we pray and we witness and listen, trusting that by doing so, their lives and ours, can be transformed.  We invite you to join us as we continue to expand our outreach to women!
