Respect Life Program 2010-2011:
The Promise of Pro-Life Youth
“With few resources and little guidance, Alejandra, a high school junior in California, began an unlikely project: starting a pro-life club at her public high school. She had recently finished reading ‘The Snakebite Letters’ by Peter Kreeft…Snakebite’s mandate is simple: “always obscure and darken … Dim the lights! Anything is preferable to truth and light.” This quote resonated with Alejandra. She recognized that this was the situation at her high school: young people living in darkness because they had no truth, no guidance, and no real hope.”
“[If] we let Christ into our lives, we lose nothing, absolutely nothing of what makes life free, beautiful and great. Only in this friendship is the great potential of human existence truly revealed.”
- Pope Benedict XVI, homily, April 24, 2005.
