CHAPTER 20 PRO-LIFE ORGANIZATIONS
American Life League

Pay as little attention to discouragement as possible. Plough ahead as a steamer does, rough or smooth, rain or shine. To carry your cargo and make port is the point.

                                                                                                       Maltbie Babcock.

Anti-Life Philosophy.

Opposition to abortion comes largely from the Roman Catholic Church. One of the more effective ways of scoring this point is to read from the [attached] List of Organizations Favoring Repeal [of all abortion laws] the names of prestigious national organizations ... and then to challenge your [pro-life debating] opponent to name one nonreligious organization in any of these categories (health, welfare, legal, medical, etc.) that supports their contention that abortion is murder.

                                                                  National Abortion Rights Action League.[1]

Introduction.

When you scan lists of groups opposing abortion, you find all of them are religious in nature.

                                                              Anne Nicol Gaylor, Abortion is a Blessing.[2]

Anti-Religious Bigotry.

The above quotes are two of many attempts by the National Abortion Rights Action League (NARAL) and other pro-abort groups to stereotype and pigeonhole the entire pro-life movement.

There is good strategic reasoning behind this blatant bigotry. If NARAL and their contemptible ilk can convince the public that the pro-life movement is very narrow in focus and unrepresentative of the American mainstream by painting it as an organ of an 'unholy alliance' between the Pope and Fundamentalist preachers, they will have won a great psychological victory. They will have successfully tapped into the deep reservoir of residual anti-Catholic and anti-religious bigotry that lurks within the souls of tens of millions of Americans.

To show how one-sided this kind of stereotyping really is, try to imagine the uproar that the Neoliberal media would make if some pro-life leader snottily declared that all abortophiles were nothing but a bunch of sexually perverted, atheist lowlife scum!

An anti-life debater may very well make a statement similar to the above NARAL quote. If this happens, the pro-life debater may respond by simply reading aloud the names of all of the non-religious pro-life groups listed in Figure 20-1. The non-religious pro-life groups in this figure are marked with an asterisk (*).

Note. Organizations marked with an asterisk (*) are primarily non-religious in their work, although they may be partially or mostly composed of people who are Christians and Jews.

The pro-abort debater is likely to concede defeat on this point by the time the pro-lifer gets one-fourth of the way through the list! If the pro-lifer somehow does get through the first list, he could then read aloud the names of all of the affiliates of the National Right to Life Committee in Figure 20-2, which are all non-religious as well.

Hundreds of Pro-Life Groups.

There are literally hundreds of large and small pro-life groups scattered all over the United States. Their areas of interest and types of activism encompass the entire range of pro-life action: From legislative research to education to picketing and sidewalk counseling to rescue missions.

By contrast, the pro-abortion propagandists pad their numbers by counting those Neoliberal organizations that have absolutely nothing at all to do with abortion other than 'signing on' just to show "solidarity" with their "sisters and brothers battling for reproductive rights." Typical of these groups are the American Home Economics Association, the American Veterans Committee, and the Coalition of Black Trade Unionists.

It is critical to note that only five percent of the groups listed in the figures in Chapter 5 ("Anti-Life Organizations) are primarily concerned with keeping abortion 'safe and legal,' and, by contrast, a whopping 90 percent of the groups shown in the comprehensive list of pro-life organizations in Figure 20-1 are specifically single-issue pro-life.

A Place For Everyone ...

There is a place for every pro-life activist and every imaginable skill in one of these local or national groups.

This chapter lists national and international pro-life organizations which have numerous local chapters or affiliates, and are willing to share their resources with other pro-life groups upon request. For those activists with more specific interests, local or national groups can usually provide guidance and contact points. Chapter 23 lists many of the periodicals issued by these groups.

Many of these are 'ad-hoc'-type groups that have relatively narrow fields of interest, i.e., Title X funding or individual state right-to-die bills. This chapter includes a comprehensive listing of those groups that focus their efforts on a relatively narrow field, and have resources that are of general interest to most pro-life activists. Figure 20-1 is a comprehensive list of these groups, and many addresses and telephone numbers of nationally-based pro-life organizations are listed later in this chapter.

One book that activists should be familiar with is the International Life Services' Pro-Life Resource Manual. This manual, updated every year, lists more than 4,000 local and national pro-life groups, their addresses and phone numbers, and their major fields of action. The book is available from International Life Services, Inc., 2606-1/2 West 8th Street, Los Angeles, California, 90057, telephone: (213) 382-2156.

National Pro-Life Groups.

Introduction.

Space does not permit a comprehensive listing of the activities of every one of the hundreds of national and local pro-life groups. However, it is possible to describe the focuses of attention of about a dozen large nationally-based groups, whose combined activities cover the entire spectrum of pro-life pursuits. These are listed below.

American Life League (ALL).
ALL produces, gathers and disseminates activist and legislative information on a national scale with an excellent monthly magazine entitled ALL About Issues, and a biweekly legislative/ activist newsletter entitled Communique. ALL lobbies vigorously for pro-life groups, and supports various methods of direct action for saving the preborn. Director: Mrs. Judie Brown, Post Office Box 1350, Stafford, VA 22555, telephone: (703) 659-4171. FAX number is (703) 658-2586.

Americans Against Abortion (AAA).
This organization is headed by Keith Green's widow Melody. AAA is one of the most media-savvy of all pro-life groups, and has an excellent selection of literature and other items available, including various pro-life t-shirts. AAA has sponsored the cross-country "Walk for Life" by Pastors Jerry Horn and Norm Stone, which generated considerable media attention. AAA can be reached at: Americans Against Abortion, Post Office Box 70, Lindale, Texas, 75771-0070.

Americans United for Life (AUL).
AUL is a public interest law firm defending anti-abortion, anti-infanticide, and anti-euthanasia activists. This organization also issues its periodical AUL Studies in Law and Medicine, dealing with the legal and historical aspects of specific topics, i.e., "The Beginning of Human Life" and "Abortion, Personhood, and the 14th Amendment." AUL can be reached at 343 South Dearborn Street, Suite 1804, Chicago, Illinois 60604, telephone: (312) 786-9494.

Catholics United for Life (CUL).
National headquarters for CUL is the 60-member third-order St. Martin de Porres Dominican Community in New Hope, Kentucky. The objectives of CUL and its 21 affiliates are sidewalk counseling and public education. CUL maintains an excellent library of pamphlets and tapes on various subjects, and a list of its materials may be obtained by writing to: Catholics United for Life, New Hope, Kentucky, 40052.
An affiliate organization, Free Speech Advocates, Post Office Box 815, Notre Dame, Indiana 46556, is dedicated to preserving the besieged right to legally protest abortion. FSA maintains a brief bank of documents from important pro-life litigation from all over the country.

Christian Action Council (CAC).
This is a politically-oriented organization which founded the Crisis Pregnancy Center concept. Their primary goal is to get churches of all faiths involved in the struggle against abortion, infanticide, and euthanasia. The CAC sponsors the fall national Pastor's Protest Against Abortion and the January Sanctity of Life Sunday. The national headquarters has an excellent reading list of material on abortion, infanticide, euthanasia, and the Christian response, which may be ordered from: Christian Action Council, 101 West Broad Street, Suite 500, Falls Church, Virginia 22046.

Concerned Women for America.
"A positive alternative to the militant feminism that threatens American society," this organization of more than half a million members fights militant homosexuality, kiddie porn, abortion, and stands for a strong national defense, religious freedom, and the free enterprise system. Director: Mrs. Beverly LaHaye, 370 L'Enfant Promenade SW, Suite 800, Washington, DC 20024, telephone: (202) 488-7000.

Human Life Center (HLC).
The HLC, directed by Mike and Rita Marker, is an educational resource center with an extensive and up-to-date library of research materials and "Life Issue Files" drawn from various publications all over the world. The HLC is considered to be the national center of pro-life material on euthanasia, and offers a "Euthanasia Packet,” which includes copies of materials that groups like the Hemlock Society and Americans Against Human Suffering use in their relentless drive to secure the 'right' to kill born human beings.
HLC also publishes two newsletters: Human Life Issues, and the International Review (formerly the International Review of Natural Family Planning), (both published quarterly). The address of HLC is; Human Life Center, University of Steubenville, Steubenville, Ohio 43952. Telephone: (614) 282-9953.

Human Life International (HLI).
This organization fights abortion, the "right to die," and International Planned Parenthood on a global level. Planned Parenthood has called HLI its "number one enemy," which means that it is quite effective indeed. HLI has an expert staff of consultants, researchers, and advisors, including Mother Teresa of Calcutta. The annual dues include 17 issues of the HLI newsletter, and for an additional fee there are available ten special reports, published about monthly. Father Paul Marx heads HLI. Mailing address is Human Life International, 7845-E Airpark Road, Gaithersburg, Maryland 20879, telephone: (301) 670-7884.

National Right to Life Committee (NRLC).
NRLC is the largest existing national pro-life organization, with more than a quarter of a million members and affiliates in every state. The primary purpose of NRLC is to sponsor community, legislative, and political action to oppose or change current and proposed liberal abortion, infanticide, and euthanasia laws. Local RTL chapters usually maintain excellent video and book libraries. NRLC's address is Suite 500, 419-7th Street, Washington DC 20004, telephone: (202) 626-8800. Claire Richter.
NRLC also maintains a legislative update hotline at (202) 393-LIFE. This is a toll call, but you can minimize the cost by calling late in the evening, since it is a 24-hour line.

A list of the fifty state Right to Life organizations and their addresses and phone numbers is shown in Figure 20-2.

Open ARMS (Abortion Related MinistrieS).
This is a relatively new non-political support group that counsels post-abortive women, their families, parents, and boyfriends as a group. Open ARMS works closely with Crisis Pregnancy Centers to resolve bitterness and regret by post-abortive women and their families. Contact: Open ARMS, Post Office Box 1056, Columbia, Missouri 65205, telephone: (314) 449-7672.

Pro-Life Action League (PLAL).
This Chicago group is headed by Joe Scheidler, who has been called "The Green Beret of the pro-life movement" by national syndicated columnist Patrick Buchanan. The League educates the public on abortion via the media. It has a daily hotline, which gives the latest update on current abortion-related events, both local and national. PLAL's address is 6160 N. Cicero Avenue, Chicago, Illinois 60646. Their office phone number is (312) 777-2900, and their hotline is at (312) 777-2525.

Women Exploited by Abortion (WEBA).
WEBA is a support ministry for women who have had abortions and who now regret their decisions. WEBA has about 15,000 members in 45 states. The objectives of this group are support for post-abortive women, education, and political lobbying.
Write to Route 1, Box 821, Venus, Texas 76084, telephone: (214) 366-3600.

Special Interest Groups.

The more than one hundred national pro-life groups listed in this chapter usually have a specific interest or ministry which is implied in their names. If you have a similar interest, these groups will be very useful in helping you put your talents to use in the most efficient manner, by getting you in contact with local activists who share your concerns. These groups are also usually the best source of information on their specific topics of interest, and will share this information freely, usually just for the price of copying it.
