Anglican Communion Network Partners with Anglicans for Life
Anglicans for Life has a new name, a new partnership and is starting a new decade, after 40 years of championing issues of the sanctity of life in the Episcopal Church. The Anglican Communion Network (ACN) has accepted Anglicans for Life as its first organizational affiliate.
“Partnering with the Network lends credibility to us as a team player among Anglicans,” said Georgette Forney, President of Anglicans for Life based in Sewickley, Pennsylvania. “We want to reclaim the Anglican Church as a pro-life church. Being part of the Network speaks volumes to people about how all biblical teachings on marriage, family and sanctity of life issues are connected and how important it is to work together to uphold them.”
Formerly known as “N.O.E.L., the National Organization of Episcopalians for Life Research and Education Foundations, Inc.,” Anglicans for Life was originally founded as “Episcopalians for Life” in 1966 by Bishop Joseph M. Harte of the Diocese of Arizona. “The name Anglicans for Life is more descriptive of the broader scope we now have in addressing life issues including abortion, stem cell research, euthanasia, abstinence, and adoption,” said Forney. “It also speaks of our new international reach as we respond to requests for help now coming in to us from countries like Kenya, Slovakia, Mexico, the UK and Australia.” the rest
