December 28 is the Catholic Church’s Feast of the Holy Innocents, Martyrs. When we acknowledge these “Holy Innocents,” we are referring to those young boys massacred by King Herod as he sought to kill the Christ Child, as mentioned in Matthew 2:16-18. In modern times, we likewise take the time to remember those “holy innocents” who have been killed through the scourge of abortion. Our Catholic faith compels us to underscore the inalienable value, dignity, and worth of all human life, from conception to natural death, as well as to strive to support mothers and fathers, especially those who find themselves in challenging situations. Here at the end of the year, when year-end giving is encouraged, here are pro-life organizations whose policies and stances are in line with the Church’s social justice teachings. You can learn more about the mission of each group by clicking on the link next to its number. These sites are listed in alphabetical order.
Note: If a group was not mentioned, that does not mean that its mission is somehow not worthwhile; rather, this is simply a sampling of the more prominent groups that are in operation. You may find other pro-life groups to support, whether at the local, state, national, or international level. Of course, the most important measure to take is to pray for the lives of the unborn, and for their parents.

TOP PICK: And Then There Were None
Also known as “AbortionWorker.com” this is the flagship pro-life apostolate of Abby Johnson, the former Planned Parenthood worker who has ethically exposed several Planned Parenthood facts and scandals, but her main effort is extremely practical. Her strategy is to take the worker out of the abortion industry, one by one, until there are no workers left. She has successfully contributed to the closing of dozens of offices and helped hundreds leave the industry of death. Hers, above all others, is our recommendation for your donation. Visit AbortionWorker.com for details.
