The Secretariat of Pro-Life Activities, under the guidance and direction of the USCCB Committee on Pro-Life Activities, works to teach respect for all human life from conception to natural death, and organize for its protection. To serve this goal, we develop resources on pro-life topics in support of the Church's mission to proclaim that every human life is a precious gift from God. 

Our work is guided by the Pastoral Plan for Pro-Life Activities, which calls upon the Church—its people, services, and institutions—to pursue this effort in four major areas: public information and education, prayer and worship, public policy, and pastoral care. We create resources to help dioceses, parishes, ministries, and individual Catholics share the Gospel of Life.

Our resources are provided for free download at respectlife.org and usccb.org/prolife. Select printed materials are available for purchase through this Respect Life Store.
