The Office of Pro-Life Activities supports initiatives aligned with Catholic teaching, respecting life from conception until natural death. The office works to uphold human dignity and offers support to those in need, such as women in crisis pregnancies.
On January 22, 1973, the Supreme Court of the United States legalized abortion. The Office for Pro-Life for the Diocese of Gary, IN, has implemented a Pastoral Plan for the Pro-Life activities. This campaign in support of life is supported by the US Catholic Bishops. Reverend Theodore J. Mens is the Director of the Pro-Life Office.
