WHRTL is a peaceful, non-profit, non-partisan organization and is not affiliated with any church or denomination. Choosing to respect life as something good and sacred transcends political parties or beliefs, religious convictions, economic status, age, nationality, and many other things that might make us different from one another. We work to educate those in our community about the detrimental effects of disregarding respect for human life, and advocate for those such as the unborn who cannot speak for themselves.
