WHILE ALL ORTHODOX CHRISTIANS are, by definition, pro-life, the members of Orthodox Christians for Life endeavor to raise awareness of the abortion industry and related affronts to the sanctity of human life.
The scourge of abortion is the greatest genocide to have darkened the history of man. OCLife hopes to educate Orthodox Christians about the the many good efforts of the Pro-Life Movement, encouraging greater involvement and zeal in them. This is one facet of how the Church can more affectively serve as leaven within society, thus cultivating the healing, love, chastity, and family stability that can help men and women grow into the fullness of the stature of Christ Jesus.
