LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - Catherine Szeltner, a former correspondent of EWTN News Nightly, will be the show's host.

During a press release announcing "EWTN Pro-Life Weekly," Szeltner explained: "We want to help viewers become actively involved in the pro-life movement.

"What are the expectations here? What's realistic? What's not? What is Congress debating now? How do we hold our lawmakers accountable for their pro-life promises?

Szeltner continued, explaining the show is "the authoritative resource for the latest pro-life news" that will attempt to provide answers to some of the more difficult questions.

According to Christian News Wire, EWTN Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Michael P. Warsaw explained: ""Despite the fact that there are many signs of hope, our culture continues to chip away at the right to life from conception to natural death.

"I believe this is the perfect time to produce a show that takes pro-life reporting and analysis to the next level. 'EWTN Pro-Life Weekly' not only seeks to inform, but also to show viewers how to engage everyone from their friends and neighbors to their elected representatives on the life issues.

"The show will also focus on those who are already doing great work, such as the Susan B. Anthony List. Our goal is that viewers will be motivated, inspired, and equipped to make a difference."

Susan B. Anthony List President Marjorie Dannenfelser added: "Susan B. Anthony List is thrilled to partner with EWTN on this program that will go beyond delivering news.

"We will call on our audience to take concrete action to enact lifesaving legislation for unborn children and their mothers.

"SBA List will bring our political insight, legislative analysis, as well as relationships with legislators and members of the media to help create a dynamic, must-watch program.

"The show will collapse the distance between the White House, Congress, the press, and those at home who care deeply about saving unborn boys and girls, who want to know what more than can do. Viewers will meet the key players, see what they see, and become a part of the grassroots army engaged in high-stakes fights.

"With a pro-life White House and Congress, our movement is in the strongest position possible to advance historic protections for the unborn."

Szeltner made sure to include the show would take a "holistic, Catholic approach" around pro-life issues and throughout all stages of life.

"EWTN Pro-Life Weekly" will air January 26 with an encore on Friday, the 27. It will then air each week at 11 p.m. ET on Fridays, 10 a.m. ET Sundays and 3 a.m. Mondays beginning March 3, 2017. For more information on the show, please visit the official site.
