Welcome to USCCB Respect Life!

USCCB Respect Life serves the U.S. Bishop’s goal of building a culture of life "from womb to tomb". 

We help local Respect Life ministries, as well as individual Catholics, to live and share Christ's Gospel of Life. Here, you can find pro-life prayers and devotions; facts about abortion, euthanasia, and bioethics; resources for supporting local ministries; Action Alerts to raise your voice politically; and practical help with sharing the truth about dignity and value of every human person.

Walking with Moms in Need logo

Walking with Moms in Need is a year of service where Catholic parishes and communities "walk in the shoes" of local pregnant and parenting women in need.

Everyone should know how to help moms in difficult circumstances.

While not trying to turn Catholic parishes into pregnancy centers, we can support local pregnancy centers where they exist, and we can also find and share other resources with pregnant and parenting women.

And where there are few local resources, we can create our own, based on the gifts of the parish community!

We hope you and your parish will join us in this Year of Service. Learn more here.

The annual Respect Life Program is a year-round, nationwide effort to help Catholics understand, value, and become engaged with building a culture that cherishes every human life.

Although sponsored by the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, the Respect Life Program is essentially comprised of the efforts of leaders throughout the Church like you—parish priests, staff, and volunteers; teachers and school administrators; diocesan leaders; and so many others.

The U.S. bishops produce these materials to assist you in your efforts. Instead of acting as stand-alone resources, they are designed to be brought to life as tools in your hands—build off or adapt them to fit your specific needs!
