Human rights start when human life begins.


About Us

The Pro-Life Alliance of Gays and Lesbians began in 1990 as local groups in Washington DC and Minneapolis. At first it was called "Gays Against Abortion", but the name was changed in early 1991 to reflect our membership of both gay men and lesbians. Today PLAGAL strives to promote a respect for life within the gay community and encourage gay and lesbian participation in the pro-life cause.

Our membership includes women and men of various sexual orientations, political affiliations, and geographic locations -- all committed to raising awareness of the pro-life ethic as consistent with the gay and lesbian struggle for human rights.

As activists, PLAGAL members and chapters have participated since 1990 in marches for GLBT rights as well as annually in the March for Life. Regional groups throughout the country present educational forums, support programs that serve pregnant women and their children, and participate in local pride events. We also do outreach through the print and online media with opinion columns, interviews, and letters to the editor in both the gay and straight press.
