Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) — Human Life International has launched a new domestic outreach that will focus on the abortion-contraception culture in the United States. The group is known for its pro-life work abroad, but wants to renew its focus on tackling abortion domestically with over 52 million abortions since Roe v. Wade.
"Today Human Life International announces the launch of HLI America, a new initiative aimed at confronting contraception and the culture of death throughout the United States," said Rev. Thomas J. Euteneuer, president of HLI.
"HLI is present in over 100 countries around the world. This new American initiative highlights what is true in both our personal lives and on the world stage — namely that ‘protecting life begins at home,’" he added.
The new group, he told LifeNews.com, "will bring Americans the truth about human life, the beauty of children and the devastating and harmful effects of contraception in America."
The new HLI America outreach will be led by Jenn Giroux the longtime founder and president of Women Influencing the Nation.
HLI America is already at work producing the most up- to-date materials on the link between contraception and abortion. It will also provide a rapid-response mechanism in order to confront the lies of the contraceptive and abortion industries which is so clearly needed in the modern media environment.
"Americans have lost sight of our greatest resource: our children," said Giroux, who will serve as executive director.
"After 50 years of mis-information and lies concerning birth control and abortion, we aim to present the truth to the upcoming generation about the assaults that have taken place on new life and motherhood," she said. "That is why we will both highlight the beauty of children and expose the ‘post contraceptive regret’ that is prevalent among women today who mourn everyday for the children they chose to prevent or abort."
Giroux is a mother of nine children who, as a registered nurse for more than 24 years, has witnessed first-hand the devastating physical and spiritual effects that contraception has had on women and their families.
