    Fr. Frank Pavone of Priests for Life is in some ways the figurehead of the whole pro-life movement. Despite the name, this is more than just a professional association of pro-life priests. The activities of PFL are far-reaching, which helps explain why PFL has higher revenue and expenses than any other specifically pro-life nonprofit. PFL sponsors Rachel’s Vineyard, Silent No More, and other ministries. The central focus is on training and encouraging priests and deacons to speak effectively about abortion.

    ALL is, in a sense, the Catholic version of National Right to Life Committee, and was formed when the Catholics split from NRLC in 1979. Note that NRLC is not separately included on this list because it’s a 501(c)(4) and not eligible for support through Tipping Point at this time. Whereas NRLC takes no position on contraception and generally lobbies for any pro-life legal advancement, ALL insists on “no exceptions” in any political efforts it endorses, and also invests in education and awareness against contraception and all other violations of the Catholic view of personhood and human dignity (euthanasia, IVF, etc.) ALL also encourages sidewalk presence and prayer as effective means to resist abortion.

    40 Days is a 2nd-generation organization that has attracted many new people to sidewalk counseling and prayer vigils at abortion clinics since it went national in 2007. The campaign works to encourage a 24/7 peaceful prayer witness at as many abortion facilities as possible around the world, for 40 days at a time, roughly twice per year. This obviously requires a great deal of manpower at each location, which helps to bring many ideological pro-lifers into activism for the first time. The organization spends its donated resources on training & supporting local volunteer leaders and inspiring people to start campaigns at new locations.

    CFR’s primary task is to fight the “reproductive rights” agenda at the U.N. Anti-pro-life advocates are constantly trying to normalize abortion access as a basic human right around the globe by getting it codified as part of a package of reproductive rights at the U.N. Thanks to CFR’s work over the years, they haven’t succeeded yet. This fight needs to be fought every year in order to prevent a U.N. policy setback that would significantly hamper pro-life efforts in many countries around the world.
