Jenn Giroux to Lead HLI America: 'Protecting Life Begins at Home'

FRONT ROYAL, Va., May 21 /Christian Newswire/ -- "Today Human Life International announces the launch of HLI America, a new initiative aimed at confronting contraception and the culture of death throughout the United States," said Rev. Thomas J. Euteneuer, president of Human Life International (HLI). "HLI is present in over 100 countries around the world. This new American initiative highlights what is true in both our personal lives and on the world stage -- namely that 'protecting life begins at home'. Led by Jenn Giroux, HLI America will bring Americans the truth about human life, the beauty of children and the devastating and harmful effects of contraception in America." 

HLI America is already at work producing the most up- to-date materials on the link between contraception and abortion, the often unseen effects of these assaults on women and the family, and the many health risks of contraceptive use. HLI America will also provide a rapid-response mechanism in order to confront the lies of the contraceptive and abortion industries which is so clearly needed in the modern media environment. 

"Americans have lost sight of our greatest resource: our children," said Giroux, who will serve as HLI America's Executive Director. "After 50 years of mis- information and lies concerning birth control and abortion, we aim to present the truth to the upcoming generation about the assaults that have taken place on new life and motherhood. That is why we will both highlight the beauty of children and expose the 'post contraceptive regret' that is prevalent among women today who mourn everyday for the children they chose to prevent or abort." 

Giroux is a mother of 9 who, as a Registered Nurse for over 24 years, has witnessed first hand the devastating physical and spiritual effects that contraception has had on women and their families. Before joining HLI America, she was founder and president of Women Influencing the Nation (WIN), an organization dedicated to reclaiming traditional morality in American society. She has appeared often in national media, including CNN, FOX, and MSNBC.
