The semi-annual pro-life summit will be held Saturday, July 15 from noon to 3 p.m. in center city Philadelphia. The event will begin with Mass at 12 noon in the Chapel of the Cathedral Basilica of SS. Peter and Paul, 18th Street and Benjamin Franklin Parkway with the summit immediately following at the Archdiocesan Pastoral Center located at 222 N. 17th Street.
The documentary film “Hush” will be shown during the event. The film uncovers an array of important women’s
health information that has been hidden by the explosive political battleground surrounding the subject of abortion. Themes such as a woman’s reproductive history related to her breast cancer risk, premature
birth risk and psychological problems are explored in depth.
Directed from the point of view of a “pro-choice” Canadian filmmaker whose life and health is personally affected by the information she finds, the film is supported by “pro-life” Executive Producer Drew Martin and
“neutral” Producer/Editor Joses Martin.
“Hush” is a film that will have a lasting effect on health care, government and furthering feminist progress to unite left and right political ideologies by first helping to start a healthy conversation.
The summit will also feature guest speaker Dr. Angela Lanfranchi. She is the co-founder and president of the Breast Cancer Prevention Institute, a non-profit charitable corporation whose mission is to educate lay and professional communities in the methods of risk reduction and prevention of breast cancer through research,
publications and lectures.
Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
