The Pro-Life Union of Greater Philadelphia leads, serves, and witnesses to love.
Transform a Culture
Your donation makes a real impact on work around the region. Donations can be directed to support practical efforts in all four areas of our mission.

The Pro-Life Union manages Guiding Star Ministries, a maternity home in Philadelphia. We staff a Pregnancy Hotline as a resource for women facing an unexpected pregnancy. We provide tangible support for women in need. The counseling, support, and  help, like rent, housing, and job and life skills, can make  the difference between a woman choosing between life or abortion for her unborn baby.


We distribute educational materials regarding culture of life issues, from contraception, abortion, pregnancy centers, end-of-life, and death penalty matters, across the Greater Philadelphia region.


We coordinate prayer vigils at each of the abortion clinics in the area, organizing hundreds of volunteers throughout the year to provide peaceful prayer and witness at each location. We serve to train volunteers in respectful, loving, proven sidewalk counseling techniques.  We work with 40 Days for Life Campaigns in Center City and suburbs in Greater Philadelphia.

Public Affairs

We educate officials in the Greater Philadelphia area and Harrisburg on the impact of existing and prospective legislation, forming relationships wherever possible to promote the dignity of human life at all stages.
