EWTN to air pro-life programs and special live events in January

.- EWTN will air special pro-life programming this month to mark the anniversary of Roe vs. Wade (Jan. 22), as well as to celebrate life and to fight the culture of death.

Dr. Ann Moell will give a lecture on reproductive issues and her new attitude towards birth control in “Life Is a Gift” (Jan. 20 at 5 a.m.; Jan. 23 at 11 a.m.).

Fr. Wade Menezes will address important life questions with concrete examples of how to live the gospel message of life, love, and joy in a society that seeks to devalue the mystery of God’s creation in his series, “The Gospel of Life vs. the Culture of Death” (Episodes 1-5, Jan. 20, from 9 a.m. to 11; Episodes 6-10, Jan. 21, from 9:30 a.m. to noon).

The program “Building a Culture of Life” will explore what pro-lifers around the world are doing to combat their government’s strong-arm pro-abortion tactics (Jan. 22-26 at 3 a.m. and 6:30 p.m.).

EWTN will also provide live coverage one of the largest pro-life rallies in the country, the West Coast Walk for Life in San Francisco. Fathers Francis Mary Stone and Mark Mary Cristina will provide coverage of the day’s events. (Jan. 20 at 1:30 p.m.; rebroadcast Jan. 20 at 8 p.m.; Jan. 22 at 5 p.m., and Jan. 25 at 1 p.m.).

EWTN will then go live to the Basilica of the Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington, D.C., for the Vigil Mass for Life and the Annual Mass for Life.  

Marcus Grodi and Deb Piroch will provide full live coverage of the 34th annual March for Life, beginning with messages from pro-life speakers at the Rally for Life (Jan. 22 at 11 a.m.; rebroadcast Jan. 22 at 10 p.m., Jan. 23 at 9 a.m., and Jan. 27 at 1 p.m.).
