Respect Life Educational Programs


Our programs for children under 13 years of age are positive presentations of the beauty and value of human life. We carefully choose language which is appropriate to the child’s age and the class setting, with consideration of information that is best left for parents to give to their children. Care is taken to avoid explicit anatomical terms, with which children would be unfamiliar or uncomfortable. Please notify us if you have questions in this regard.

Right to Life Educational Programs

RTL-SC offers oral presentations and study materials to educate the pubic on matters concerning the protection of human life in all stages. Much of the information we share is unfamiliar to many people, but is crucial for the physical and psychological health of individuals and the well-being of society.

We have presentations appropriate for all ages.
