Jim and Joy Pinto, who host regular radio and TV programs on the Eternal Word Television Network (EWTN), were active participants in the 2014 NRLC Convention held in Louisville, Kentucky. Jim Pinto presented an articulate and motivational talk at the annual Friday Prayer Breakfast, speaking on the importance of the pro-life movement and reaffirming EWTN’s deep commitment to the pro-life issue. He enumerated the serious threats to innocent human life and stated that EWTN has a desire to continue to work with National Right to Life on restoring a culture of life in our nation.

In referring to Christ’s words at the last supper, “Remember me,” Jim said. ”That’s the work of the National Right to Life, and EWTN wants to stand with you. That’s the work of each and every one of us: Go and remember — remember my children. Remember the weak, the disabled, the widow, the orphan, the unborn. Remember them and bring them to Me.”

Jim also said, “I bring you special greetings from Michael Warsau, CEO and Chairman of the board, and Doug Keck, President of EWTN and Chief Operating Officer.”

In concluding his talk, Jim said, “We are in partnership together in this fight. Be strong! Be courageous!”

Joy Pinto was a panelist on the Thursday opening general session joined by Kathryn Jean Lopez of National Review Online and Dr. Jean Garton, author of “Who Broke the Baby?” The session was entitled “The Real War on Women,” and was moderated by NRLC President Carol Tobias.

Mrs. Tobias posed a series of questions designed to get at the truth–that the real war on women is abortion and all its ramifications. The real consequences of abortion for women can include medical complications, psychological damage, and–for many–lifelong guilt.

The panelists also addressed the almost total absence in the media and government of the true facts about abortion and its negative impact on women. Informed consent laws and other legislation are crucial in providing women with this information as they consider a choice between life and death for their unborn children.

Pinto, Lopez, and Garton felt that the ‘The War On Women’ mantra was a propaganda tool used by the pro-abortionists to make it sound as if denying women unfettered access to abortion was a grave injustice. The real War on Women is, in reality, legalized abortion.

Jim and Joy Pinto are Co-Hosts of Marriage & God’s Plan ∙ Eternal Word Television Network (EWTN), At Home with Jim and Joy.

Jim and Joy Pinto were born and raised in New Jersey, met in their teens, dated for six years and, after experiencing a profound conversion to Christ, married in 1977. The Pintos are blessed with four children and 15 grandchildren. For the Pintos: “marriage and family is the place where God daily manifests Himself and the means by which He desires to transform the world.”

EWTN, the largest Catholic cable and satellite network in the world, airs the Pinto’s, Marriage and God’s Plan teachings throughout the day, making them available to over 150 million television households in more than 140 countries and territories.
