Founded in 1991 by J.C. Willke, MD, and Bradley Mattes, Life Issues Institute is a non-profit (501c3) international organization dedicated to changing hearts and minds of millions of people through pro-life education.

Our calm, factual approach enables us to reach millions with pro-life education and knowledge that saves lives.

To build a culture that respects life and counters the “who decides” and “pro-choice” mentality, the rights of women and the rights of the unborn have to be joined. We must reach out to every woman faced with the agony of abortion and say to her, “Your life and the life of your baby are important, and we will not desert either one of you. We love you both.”

Life Issues Institute’s role is crucial to the goal of restoring a culture of life, whether at its beginning or its end. We’re dedicated to encouraging, educating and supporting those who recognize the right to life.

We encourage you to examine our ground-breaking educational efforts through our websites

and through our e-newsletters, publications, social networks and Life Issues, our daily radio commentary. We’re working strategically to create a culture of life. We hope you’ll share our excitement and optimism and help support our efforts to change the hearts and minds of Americans on abortion, assisted suicide and euthanasia.
