I’m writing from Washington, D.C., where I traveled to screen our latest film, Breeders: A Subclass of Women? The Catholic Information Center on K Street—just blocks away from the White House—hosted a diverse and influential audience, and we enjoyed a lively discussion after the film.

Your continued support helps us reach people with our educational films!

Our films remain a vital source of both information and revenue for the CBC, so if you haven’t purchased them, please do so now. If you know of someone who would benefit from our films, perhaps consider purchasing them as a gift. The holidays are just around the corner, and we’re told that they make for great stocking stuffers!

We’ve also been pleased to hear that our supporters are purchasing our films for church, school, and local libraries. Our library licenses are a great way to help us reach a large and often untapped market. Might you consider purchasing one for an organization of your choice? Visit the CBC Store link on our website to order.

Our fall schedule is filling up fast with great opportunities before us. I’ll be addressing over thirty delegates at the United Nations on November 1st. All of the delegates will receive copies of our trilogy of films on third-party reproduction. It a great opportunity to reach a global audience, educate them on the multi-billion dollar reproductive tourism industry, and help them think about international solutions to stop the exploitation of women and children.

In early November, Christopher White, our Director of Research and Education, will be speaking to Notre Dame’s Law Students for Life. Later in the month I fly to San Diego, CA, to speak at the annual Evangelical Theological Society’s meeting—an important opportunity to address theological leaders within evangelical churches.

Then I’m off to New York City for a meeting of the Evangelicals and Catholics Together project, which I’ve been involved with for the past two years. I count it a privilege to work with leaders and thinkers who share a vision for human life, human dignity, and human flourishing.

We’re pleased that the CBC has become the go-to voice for a defense of the most vulnerable among us—be it in the areas of third party reproduction, embryonic stem cell research, or physician assisted suicide.

In the past two months alone, we’ve been featured in the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, First Things, The Public Discourse, and many other media outlets.

It’s thanks to you that our voice is being heard! Your gifts allow us to keep forging ahead, raising the awareness of the work of the CBC, and growing our sphere of influence. Without your gifts our progress would be stalled—that’s why we’re always trying to expand our network.

Can you help us by introducing your friends to the CBC? Would you consider hosting a small gathering in your home and have me come and talk about our work? I would love that! Would you organize a screening of one of our films at your university, church, or other gathering? We’d love to help with that! Let’s be creative and think how together we can move ahead. We have exciting plans on our horizon in 2015, and we need your continued support.



Your faithful giving is vital to our work.
Together we are making a difference in the world.
Thank you!
