Who We Are

St. Tammany Right to Life is a non-denominational 501(c)(3) corporation dedicated to promoting life.  St. Tammany RTL became a chapter of Louisiana Right to Life in 1986 with its primary focus on education and legislation.

St Tammany RTL has been a resource for schools by providing speakers to show the fetal development models (rubber models showing in real scale the development of the fetus in the womb) to elementary and high school youth. Working alongside the Crises Pregnancy Centers and many churches, St. Tammany Right to Life members have given countless Pro Life presentations and worked tirelessly on legislation and ensuring that voters are informed regarding candidates’ positions on life issues.

Four annual events are hosted by St. Tammany Right to Life: Life Chains in East and West St. Tammany, which attract 1000-plus people; the St. Tammany Right to Life Oratory Contest for high school juniors and seniors; March for Life in East St. Tammany; and Pro-Life Youth Scholarship awards for graduating St. Tammany parish seniors.  Quarterly meetings are held in February, May, August, and November at different locations in St. Tammany to encourage participation by all members and interested persons passionate about a Pro-Life Louisiana.

The chapter also offers scholarships to PULSE Weekend Immersions and the PULSE Leadership Institute for high school and college students and supports the crisis pregnancy centers.
