Welcome Pro-Life bloggers!
We want to thank Jill Stanek for her awesome post about our new blog!

For background, the Catholic Pro-Life Committee is one of the largest (if not the largest) Diocesan based pro-life groups in the nation. We have a staff of 35 people with hundreds of volunteers making up nine separate ministries. We have been called the "model" diocesan pro-life group and we base ourselves on the Bishop's Pastoral Plan for Pro-Life Activities. If you are part of a Catholic diocese, please read that document and make yourselves familiar with it, maybe even show it to your Bishop and ask him to implement it. The Pastoral Plan is the official response of the US Bishops to the tragedy of abortion in America.

Most people do not know that the Roe decision actually began here in Dallas back in 1970, and since it began here, we feel a strong desire to end it here. To that end, our Executive Director, Karen Garnett, has built the Pro-Life Committee into a very effective instrument in making certain that this does indeed happen. Karen is a recipient of the Cardinal Mindszenty Motherhood Award and just last year, was awarded the John Cardinal O'Connor Pro-Life Hall of Fame Award by Tom Monahan, the founder of the international Catholic group Legatus for her leadership in developing such a strong organization. Thank you Karen!

If you are in the Dallas/Fort Worth area next weekend, Saturday, January 20th, please consider coming to our Dallas Rally and March for Life. One of our goals is to make the Dallas Roe Rally and March for Life as big as the ones in Washington and San Francisco.

Thank you again Jill. You have been an inspiration for me and for many others and we look forward to working with you in the future in making "unconditional respect for human life the foundation of a renewed society."

Dear Andrew,

I live in Sausalito, CA (San Francisco Archdiocese) and sidewalk counsel in the Bay Area. I came across CPLC's website about seven months ago and was very impressed with the Catholic Pro-Life Committee of North Texas. After visiting CPLC's webpages, I informed my friends about your wonderfully active pro-life diocese and told them that it is a role model for all Catholic dioceses and a source of inspiration and hope for me. I have linked to CPLC's main page and the Chronicles page from a couple of my websites, including Children Deserve Birth, ever since.

I just took a look at your flier for the Dallas March for Life and was pleased to see that it is an authentic March for Life as is the one in Washington.

I think we met a few years back at PFL's office. A group of us had lunch with Stephen (now Fr. Stephen) Imbaratto who is currently doing great work in New Mexico via Project Defending Life.

Keep up the great work. I look forward to reading more chronicles.

Congratulations on your marriage and precious child.

Sincerely yours in Christ for Life,
Fredi D'Alessio
