NEW YORK, NY (Priests for Life) - EWTN viewers can now get an inside look at the important work being done by Priests for Life and Gospel of Life Ministries as the 24th season of Defending Life premiered this week.

Hosted by Janet Morana, Executive Director of Priests for Life and co-founder of the Silent No More Awareness Campaign, and Father Denis Wilde, OSA, Associate Director of Priests for Life, the show will air at 2:30 a.m. ET every Wednesday and 11 p.m. ET every Thursday. Those tuning in by radio can hear the show at 6:30 p.m. Saturday and 6 p.m. Sunday.

The new season's 13 episodes will introduce viewers to the Priests for Life Pastoral Team, including Bryan Kemper, the Youth Outreach Director, and Dr. Alveda King, Director of African American Outreach. Gospel of Life Ministries' work around the globe will be highlighted by Bob Lalonde, Director of International Outreach for Priests for Life and Gospel of Life Ministries. Mr. Lalonde also will discuss the work of the Parliamentary Network for Critical Issues, which falls under Gospel of Life Ministries. Mrs. Morana's book "Recall Abortion" will be explored.

Other guests to appear during the season will include Wendy Wright of the Catholic Family and Human Rights Institute, and Monica Miller of Citizens for a Pro-Life Society and author of "Abandoned," who will discuss her work in recovering the bodies of aborted babies. Couples who have shared an abortion experience and now speak out as part of the Silent No More Awareness Campaign will be featured in the season's final two episodes.

"Defending Life was born from a conversation Mother Angelica and I had in 1994," Father  Pavone recalled. "We were in her office discussing my pro-life work. She told me, 'We need to have you tape a series on abortion!' She picked up the phone right then and there, talked to one of the producers, and we scheduled it!"

Here's some feedback Defending Life has received from viewers over the years.

"I had my own terrible experience with abortion years ago, but have experienced healing through Christ with His Church. I am a big fan of Father Pavone and enjoy watching Defending Life on EWTN. Thank you so much for your words of love and encouragement and hope."

"I heard your TV program. I am a retired attorney and I work hard to save the lives of unborn children and the elderly. Your program put great arguments in my mind and I will use them."

"The night before I was going to have an abortion, something woke me up and I saw your Defending Life program. Now I'm having my baby."

Mrs. Morana noted that leaders of pro-life groups have told her they use the show to open their meetings and jump-start their planning on various projects.

"Every show contains good information that groups can adapt to their own needs," she said. "Priests for Life also has resources that are available to the public to help individuals and groups increase their pro-life activism. In turn, we ask those groups to help us promote the show by announcing it on their social media sites and in their parishes."
