Respect Life


respect_life_baby_feetThe Ascension Respect Life Ministry supports Birthline of Boynton Beach. Birthline offers compassionate help to women who find themselves in a crisis pregnancy by providing them with alternatives to abortion.

respectlife_baby_bottle_thankyouAscension’s Respect Life Ministry  would like to thank parishioners for their donations to the Baby Bottle fund.  Your generous donations go directly to the Diocese of Palm Beach for Birthline, where it helps save babies from abortion.  The mothers who come to Birthline are alone, frightened and wondering how they can pay for the services needed if they decide to keep their babies.  Birthline provides these women with counseling, free Ultrasounds and practical, material assistance.  That assistance includes gift items provided by Ascension parishioners during theRespect Life Ministry’s annual month-long baby shower in addition to the money from the Baby Bottle campaign.  We thank you again for all you have done this past season.
