Catholics are called to Prayer, Education and Action!  Your voice could help save millions of lives!

The Hyde Amendment has protected Americans from funding abortion for 45 years. Now, powerful members of Congress want to take away this law that both Democrats and Republicans have supported for nearly half a century. Without it, billions of taxpayer dollars could go to abortion.

That means abortions would be cheaper, easier, and funded with our taxpayer dollars.

It is critically important for Catholics to send a strong message before Congress moves forward to impose taxpayer-funded abortion. Because of the incredibly high stakes Congress needs to hear from a massive number of people.

The primary goal is for millions of Catholics to sign the petition on NoTaxpayerAbortion.com.

cropped cropped logoProject Rachel - Hope After Abortion

Project Rachel is the Catholic Church's healing ministry to those who have been involved in abortion.

Project Rachel is a healing network of specially-trained caregivers that may include priests, deacons, sisters, lay staff, volunteers, mental health professionals, spiritual directors, mentors, chaplains, and medical personnel.

These individuals, often working as a team, provide direct care to women, men, and adolescents who have been touched by an abortion loss, enabling them to grieve, receive forgiveness, and find peace.

In addition to individualized counseling, some programs include support groups and retreats. Project Rachel programs can be found in about 150 Catholic dioceses in the United States, as well as in dioceses in other countries.
