Nov. is Adoption Month!

Here's a few updates for November...

  • November is National Adoption Month! The promotion and strengthening of adoption is so important to the pro-life movement. Abortion has decimated adoption. Data shows that non-married women placed babies for adoption 9% of the time before 1973, yet in 2002, the last time the CDC collected published similar data, it was down to 1%. It's sad to think what it might be today. It's imperative that adoption is promoted as a positive option for moms and babies. We continue to do this through our I Lived on Parker Avenue documentary and much more. Check out the beautiful adoption story below!

  • Congratulations to newly elected pro-life State Sen. Jeremy Stine (Calcasieu) and pro-life State Rep. Adrian Fisher (Monroe)!

For a Pro-Life Louisiana,

Louisiana Right to Life Honors Adoptive Families During National Adoption Month
November is National Adoption Month, and Louisiana Right to Life is proud to be a part of the adoption story through support and education efforts. We honor adoptive families like Amelia and Sean, who have shared their homes and hearts with children who become their own. Said Amelia: "I told myself to truly be Pro Life, I must do more than just use my words or pray in front of an abortion facility; I need to actually save a life, and from that, my decision to adopt was made."

Giving Tuesday and iGiveCatholic Campaigns Will Support Moms and Babies. Will You Give?
The Christmas giving season is coming up, and just after Black Friday and Cyber Monday comes Giving Tuesday. We hope you will participate in one of two giving projects on Nov. 30 and support our Advertise for Life project, which aims to reach women considering abortion through a variety of advertisements that connect them with a local pregnancy center, where they can find the support they need to choose life for themselves and their child.

Louisiana attorneys and law school students take note: Join Louisiana Lawyers for Life and help light the way to a pro-life Louisiana! Louisiana Lawyers for Life was founded in 1991 to join Louisiana attorneys and law school students together to support the legal protection of human life, born and unborn, from abortion, euthanasia, and infanticide through legal, legislative, and educational means. membership drive is now under way!
In January and February 2022, Louisiana will march "Together for Life" as we advance closer toward an abortion-free Louisiana and a more pro-life America! As the Supreme Court reconsiders the unjust decision of Roe v. Wade, we must march united in defense of every precious unborn baby, with a strong commitment to support moms, both now and in a post-Roe Louisiana. There are five marches statewide!

Louisiana Right to Life held our "La Vie Jubilee" fundraiser in Mandeville last Thursday with Claire Culwell as the speaker. Claire also spoke earlier that day to the student body at Archbishop Hannan High School in Mandeville. Claire Culwell has an amazing testimony as an abortion survivor who reminds each of us of the dignity of every human person. Thanks to everyone who supported La Vie Jubilee!
