Description:

“Pharmacists For Life International [PFLI] is the only pharmacy association which is exclusively pro-life, something no other pharmacy organization can say (or would have the courage to say!). PFLI is a worldwide apostolate of thousands of pharmacists, plus hundreds of other health professionals, pharmacy students, interns, pharmacy technicians, and the public, in the USA, Canada and worldwide. We are represented on all of the continents except Antarctica, with active regional coordinators in many states and nations…

PFLI was founded in Cleveland, OH by four pharmacists of conscience. PFLI’s founding statement from May 1984 states: ‘PFLI defends, upholds and protects the sanctity of all human life from conception to natural death, regardless of age, biological stage, handicap or place of residence.'”
