Spirit & Life: Honoring a Fellow Pro-Lifer

Your Support Helps HLI Defend Life & Family Around the World! 

One blessing in doing pro-life and pro-family work around the world is that you meet the greatest human beings and Christians. In many ways they are all alike in their convictions, their opposition, their persecution, their problems, and, I might say, their consolations.
- Father Paul Marx, Faithful for Life
Human Life International and the global pro-life movement have lost a good friend and a dauntless defender of human life. On August 7, after a short battle with cancer in Moscow's Orthodox St. Alexei Hospital, Galina Maslennikova passed into eternal life and was laid to rest at Perepierzinsky Cemetery near Moscow on August 10. Galina was 68 years old and the mother of two daughters, Oksana and Aleksandra.
I have competed well; I have finished the race; I have kept the faith.
- 2 Timothy 4:7
Galina fought the good fight to the very end of her life and sacrificed all for love - love for her neighbor. Her last mission was to Latvia in June where she trained future pro-life leaders. For more than 20 years Galina, a woman of deep faith with an unwavering devotion to defending life and family, represented Human Life International (HLI) in Russia. Her pro-life efforts began when abortion in Russia was the most popular method of family planning, and the average woman had seven abortions. She inspired many to see the inherent dignity of the human person and to defend life from conception to its natural end. Many pro-life leaders in Eastern Europe began their work under Galina's tutelage, continuing to build on what they have received. 

Sincerely yours in Christ,  
Father Shenan J. Boquet
President, Human Life International
