of St. Sebastian
is a membership organization that evaluates and explores pro-life public policy initiatives by applying the principles of Natural Law through the prism of the Catholic faith. Our fellowship represents pro-life scholars and other professionals in various disciplines who wish to serve the Church by helping one another in scholarly work and by putting their abilities more fully at the service of the Culture of Life. Just as St. Sebastian gave a voice to persecuted Christians 1700 years ago, by bringing their plight to the attention of the Roman Emperor; we seek to continue that tradition by speaking for those who face an unjust death through abortion, euthanasia, embryonic stem cell research, and unethical reproductive technologies.
Central to promoting our mission are our publications The Journal of Bioethics in Law & Culture Quarterly and the weekly column, Sebastian’s Point.

The Society of St. Sebastian is a wonderful resource for pro-life research and commentary. The fellows represent the best and the brightest of the pro-life movement. My association with the Society has aided me greatly in my understanding of timely topics dealing with the sacred right to life. I find I am much better-equipped to articulate the pro-life viewpoint to legislators and grassroots activists alike because of my affiliation with this prestigious organization.
