Eternal Word Television Network’s (EWTN) airing of the five-part miniseries When They Say You Say during the first week of October was an outstanding success. The miniseries was a joint project of National Right to Life and EWTN.

This powerful miniseries is designed to prepare pro-lifers for addressing the tough question about abortion, euthanasia and other life issues. Whether you are talking to a friend over coffee or being interviewed by the media, now you will understand the true nature of the questions being posed and how to skillfully answer them.

FACEBOOK pages around the county were heralding the miniseries. EWTN’s own Facebook reflected extremely positive responses. Each night the comments about the show on EWTN’s Facebook page were over 500 “likes”, and the last show received 880 “likes” and was shared 93 times! “LIKE” statements included:

· Excellent show!!! Thank you so very much!!!

· This is just so fantastic. And such a good presentation.

· That’s so awesome, so overdue, and yet so timely. Bravo!

· I have it on now! What a GREAT show!!! LOVE IT!!! Please reshow it! PLEASE AND THANK YOU!!! LOVE YOU GUYS

· Been watching from the start; just great! Very empowering!

EWTN was proud to partner with the National Right to Life Committee on this one-of-a-kind program, which educates pro-life people on how to effectively engage pro-abortion people in dialogue that stands a chance of changing hearts and minds,” said Doug Keck, President and Chief Operating Officer of EWTN. “We had a tremendous reaction to this series from our viewers who sent us letters and emails, and who flooded our social media sites. We hope many pro-life groups will purchase the series through EWTN Religious Catalogue so everyone they know can be better educated about the most effective way to reach out to others on this foundational issue!”

When They Say You Say featuring Olivia Gans Turner is available on DVDs from EWTN and should be part of every pro-life educational resource collection. The miniseries is expected to be aired again by EWTN early next year.

When They Say You Say was created by Mary Spaulding Balch, JD, and Olivia Gans Turner as a teaching tool which has helped thousands of individuals learn how to effectively answer tricky questions asked about life issues. The miniseries is based on an extremely successful workshop developed over the years and presented at numerous conventions.

National Right to Life and EWTN worked together for more than a year to bring this important miniseries to completion. NRLC is extremely grateful to all EWTN staff and management who made this series such a wonderful success.

Over the last three years, EWTN and NRLC have cooperated in a variety or activities. Mr. Keck has attended and participated in two National Right to Life Conventions and supports expanding cooperation between EWTN and NRLC.

NRLC president Carol Tobias, and other NRLC staff have been interviewed numerous times on EWTN’s News Nightly and other EWTN programs.
