The Human Life Review’s EXPECT and Pro-Life Future NYC co-hosted an interactive panel on September 30, 2017 at Fordham University Lincoln Center. The panel, which included WYA’s Director of Advocacy Nadja Wolfe, discussed innovative ways organizations are defending the right to life and protecting the most vulnerable.
Each panelist discussed current strategies for enabling the choice for life. Nadja highlighted that policy is really a wheel or a larger framework. Policy drives funding, domestic or international, and funding is for program implementation. WYA believes that once programs are implemented, they provide the clear outline of future policy needs. Working from this framework, it is clear that policy proposals must be tied to program options for implementation.
Through the Human Dignity Curriculum and affiliate women’s health program FEMM (Fertility Education and Medical Management), WYA is able to provide these person-centered solutions to government leaders, schools, and various communities worldwide.
Nadja Wolfe was joined by Aimee Murphy, Executive Director of Rehumanize International, John Hinshaw, Director of Operations of Good Counsel Homes; and Alexis Carra, Public Policy Advocate of the Archdiocese of New York. The panel was moderated by Tom Emala of Pro-Life Future NYC.
WYA wishes to thank EXPECT for inviting WYA to join the panel. EXPECT is a Human Life Review initiative providing discussion forums and intellectual support for young professionals. You may click here to read the full report on the panel written by Human Life Review.
