About Us
Look around and you see an all-pervasive Culture of Death. The attack on the human person is subtle and sustained. Even before conception, before birth, during childhood, adolescence, adulthood and old age. Life becomes a battle. With modern-day advances, society has shrunk to such an extant that even nuclear families are now looked upon as unduly large entities. The family as we knew it - mother, father and children - has shrunk to DINKS (Double Income, No Kids), live in relationships, single-parents... where are we headed?

It is to arrest this Culture of Death and to spread the Culture of Life, that Respect for Life, India, came into being on 6th August, 1986, followed by a nation Pro-life Conference in Bangalore.

First the society was "National Association for Respect For Life". Subsequently in 1997, when the organization was registered under Karnataka Societies Registration Act of 1960, the name was changed to "Respect For Life India". RFLI is a non-profit, secular organization of people from all walks of life. It consists of a governing body, volunteers and resource persons united in a common goal to promote life in all its stages from conception to natural death, and to act against all that would lessen human dignity. The Association is concerned with issues like abortion, child labour, drug addiction, alcoholism, suicide, battered wives, dowry deaths, the plight of disabled, euthanasia and HIV/AIDS.
