A few days ago we had a post entitled Pro-life Doctors – Heroes of Our Modern Age. We would like to highlight one such doctor, Dr. Thomas W. Hilgers. Dr. Hilgers founded and runs the Pope Paul VI Institute An Institute which in its own words is dedicated to building a Culture of Life.

For years I have heard about Dr. Hilgers in relation to his work with Natural Family Planning but what I didn’t realize is that his institute is dedicated to confronting many of the challenges to do with fertility including developing moral options to treat woman who are infertile. What brought my attention to Dr. Hilgers was a friend who told me her daughter-in-law, who is now pregnant with her third child, would never have been able to have children if it weren’t for the Pope Paul VI Institute.

Below the institute describes how it tries to build a Culture of Life:

“By confronting the contraceptive mentality, which is the gateway to abortion.
By confronting artificial reproductive technologies that suppress, distort, and alter women’s fertility; that negatively impact marriages and families; and that lead to the “new abortion.”
By confronting moral erosion.
By confronting Planned Parenthood’s agenda.”

Here are a few links that explain Dr. Hilgers work:
