.- The American Life League, the largest pro-life educational organization in the United States, marked the pope's 25th anniversary by establishing the Fund for Life in Honor of Pope John Paul II.

The fund will ensure that future generations will be educated about the sanctity of life and pro-life issues based on the pope's teachings in his 1995 encyclical, The Gospel of Life. This document is one of about 80 writings he has authored during his pontificate.

"The Gospel of Life in many ways was the inspiration for the creation of American Life League's Crusade for the Defence of our Catholic Church," Judie Brown, president of the league told the U.S. Newswire today. "We view the work we are doing to challenge the status quo regarding pro-abortion Catholic public figures as doing our part to bring the message of that encyclical to the American people."

She was quoted as saying: "There is no better way to show our gratitude for his tireless efforts on behalf of all human beings, especially the preborn, than to respond to his message of hope by living the Gospel of Life in every facet of our own lives."
