There are many ways to promote life. In addition to prayer, advocacy, and education, many people choose to promote life financially.
The Respect Life Office of the Diocese of Harrisburg runs a campaign called “Pennies for Life” that raises money for pro-life work throughout our region. Particularly during Respect Life Month in October and the commemoration of Roe v. Wade in January – although the fund runs year-round – we ask parishes, schools, and individuals to contribute to this fund. Through it we support at-risk mothers and children at several different pregnancy resource centers throughout our region, we support post-abortion healing retreats in both English and Spanish, and we facilitate pro-life education efforts. Note that none of these funds go to support overhead, staff salaries, or fundraising – 100% of the money goes to support these pro-life causes.
