American Life League-the nation's largest pro-life educational organization-is proud to welcome St. Thomas Aquinas and Incarnation Respect Life Committees of Charlottesville, Virginia as the newest members of American Life League's Associates Program.
"We are very happy that we will now be able to bring our pro-life message to the state of Virginia through our collaboration with St. Thomas Aquinas and Incarnation Respect Life Committees," said Judie Brown, president of American Life League. "As we fight to restore dignity and personhood to all human persons on a national level, it is of paramount importance that we continue our grassroots efforts on the local level as well. We look forward to working with this new group until the culture of death has been defeated in Virginia and ultimately our nation."
Both the St. Thomas Aquinas and Incarnation Respect Life Committees seek to protect and preserve innocent human life from the moment of creation until death through prayerful protest, distribution of pro-life literature and educational outreach in the Charlottesville area and on the campus of the University of Virginia.
St. Thomas Aquinas and Incarnation Respect Life Committees also support local crisis pregnancy centers through annual donation drives. According to Nicole Flusche, chair of the St. Thomas Aquinas Committee and Rhonda Miska, Minister of Justice and Peace at Incarnation Parish, this new collaboration means their best efforts are yet to come. "American Life League is the nation's premier organization working to end abortion and establish a true culture of life in our country. We are excited to join their nationwide family and look forward to working with them for a very long time to come."
The Virginia organizations are now part of American Life League's growing number of associate groups, which cover half of the states in the nation, plus associated groups in Canada and Africa.
St. Thomas Aquinas and Incarnation Respect Life Committees join American Life League in its mission to "build a society that respects and protects innocent human life from creation to death, without compromise, without exception, without apology."
