About Us

Who are we?

We are a non-profit organization of men and women of all ages and religious persuasions, from all walks of life, who agree that innocent human life must be protected.

We recognize that within our country exists an organized and well-financed attack on human life especially the unborn, the disabled and persons nearing life's end. Abortion has become a part of our culture. Euthanasia or mercy killing is gaining acceptance in some areas of our nation. We recognize that it is never acceptable to solve social problems by killing our fellow human beings.

Pennsylvanians for Human Life provides resources on abortion, alternatives to abortion, post-abortion healing and euthanasia as well as other pro-life issues like chastity education, human cloning, and stem cell research.

Our Information Center is located at 400 Wyoming Ave., Scranton, Pa. It is open five days a week from 11:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.. We provide referrals and assistance to women with problem pregnancies, as well as educational programs featuring films, videos, DVD's, and qualified speakers to public and private schools, churches, PTA's, college students and individuals in the community. For further information call us at 570-343-5099.

The Scranton chapter of Pennsylvanians for Human Life publishes a local pro-life newspaper, The Pro-Life Reporter. Click here for a subscription to The Pro-Life Reporter.
