Various ProLife organizations are active in the diocese. Among them are the following.
Kelowna Right to Life is a non-profit charitable organization working to educate the public about the realities and consequences of abortion and euthanasia. Upholding strong moral values and the promotion of traditional family structures are fundamental elements of this work.
Kelowna Right to Life believes that the civilization of a society is measured by the care and protection given to its weakest members. We reject the anti-life philosophy that offers death as a solution to human suffering, especially when the label "choice" is used for the killing of pre-natal infants, so-called "useless" members of society, and the infirm and aged.

( Ezechial 18: 3)
The human being is to be respected and treated as a person from the moment of conception; and therefore from that same moment his or her rights as a person must be recognized, among which in the first place is the inviolable right of every innocent human being to life.
(Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith)
