The Mission of Human Life International (Ireland) is to advance and promote the authentic teachings of the religion of the Catholic Church in life, faith and family, by prayer, service and education.
"In our mission of education, research and publication of study, data and analysis, we seek to promote the social welfare and defend the human right of persons born and unborn. We promote natural methods of human procreation and educate persons in their obligation to respect and protect innocent human life from conception."
We are the Irish branch of a worldwide network of approximately 100 branches and affiliates. The US website is www.hli.org
We are a prayer-based organisation, relying on God’s grace for fruitfulness and success in our work. We work for God’s glory, not our own.
