Just in time for a presidential election that will determine the character of the United States for generations to come, the 30th season of Defending Life will premiere Sept. 21 on EWTN.

Created by Priests for Life in 1994 at the direct request of EWTN founder Mother Angelica to Fr. Frank Pavone, Defending Life is the longest-running, farthest-reaching show ever aired about abortion.

Returning as co-hosts this season will be Janet Morana, Executive Director of Priests for Life and co-founder of the Silent No More Awareness Campaign, and Father Stephen Imbarrato, pastoral associate at Priests for Life. Father Frank Pavone, National Director, is the creative director of the series.

The first three episodes will focus on the November elections.

“Voting with a Clear Conscience” will give viewers 10 easy steps to understanding how to apply Church teaching at the ballot box. “Ten Responses to Pro-Abortion Politicians” will teach viewers how best to respond to lawmakers and their lies. “The Vote for Life Campaign” will focus on faithful citizenship that includes taking action to change the political landscape of the nation.

Other topics to be discussed will include: Choosing life despite being homeless; Obamacare and the HHS mandate, and the “Death with Dignity” scandal.

“On Defending Life, we take on the most pressing life issues and we not only educate, but activate as well,” Father Pavone said.

Mrs. Morana, who is also the co-host of EWTN’s The Catholic View for Women, said the series highlights the work of pro-lifers across the country.

“We want viewers to know what might be happening right in their backyard, and we want them to get involved,” she said.

Also known as “The Protest Priest,” Father Imbarrato said he appreciated Pope Francis’s recent comments to young people that “we didn’t come into the world to vegetate … We came for another reason: to leave a mark.”
Father Imbarrato said: “When you watch Defending Life, you’ll have a clear idea of how to leave a mark for the unborn and the vulnerable.”

Defending Life airs Wednesdays at 3 a.m. ET and Thursdays at 11 p.m. ET, and also can be streamed online at by clicking on the “television” tab. Find out more on www.DefendingLife.TV.
