We Have the Power to Impact Our Future, and We’re Doing Something About It!

For over 50 years, a leading non-profit, Pennsylvanians for Human Life’s (PHL) mission has been to educate persons of all ages about the dignity of human life from conception to natural death. We recognize that the greatest threat to human life is the lack of information about the biological, intellectual and social uniqueness, absolute worth and irreplaceable value of every person. Through knowledge, PHL empowers youth and adults to achieve a future that RESPECTS EVERY LIFE.

Our Initiatives


We are not here to tell someone to choose life but rather to offer facts to enable well-informed decisions. Our presentations are designed to offer clear, engaging and accurate information that our audiences may not have received elsewhere. We seek to shed light on the process of human development before birth and to explain abortion through case studies. These studies share the dilemma that created the request for an abortion, the options and choices selected and a look back on alternatives. We delve into the spill-over impact of abortion on the increasing interest in infanticide, assisted suicide and euthanasia. We educate in private and public forums with a special emphasis on schools.

Classroom Speakers

PHL’s speakers bring a variety of personal, educational and professional experiences to the presentations. They include doctors, nurses, lawyers, teachers, artists, engineers and business leaders. Our speakers reflect society and have one thing in common, a solid commitment to life and believe that education is the way to change hearts and minds. Our speakers are trained with the most up-to-date information. We work to understand your needs and provide the best presenter that matches them.  We value feedback in order to be the best we can be.


As an educational leader, PHL recognizes the need for a range of information sources and support to navigate life decisions. Therefore, it is our pleasure to provide easy access to articles, insights, links, the latest in the news and other organizations also striving to build communities centered on the value of life..
