Pro-Life Journeys

an anthology from Leaven for the Loaf, a Granite State pro-life blog

In a collection of essays spanning a decade, Pro-Life Journeys is about people whose life-affirming work is building a foundation for the future.

Learn about their journeys…and about the journey ahead for the pro-life movement.

Pro-Life Journeys is an anthology of posts from Ellen Kolb’s blog Leaven for the Loaf, where she writes about the pro-life movement with a focus on her home state of New Hampshire.

In Pro-Life Journeys, you’ll meet people who found their way to pro-life work via unexpected paths. You’ll hear about a woman who spoke out courageously against assisted suicide while confronting her own terminal illness. You’ll read reports from the State House describing legislative battles that carry lessons for activists everywhere. You’ll find the author’s report from the Nation’s Capital on unconventional pro-life allies who defied stereotyping.

There are essays about New Hampshire activists as well as people who have made their mark nationally. Some of the activists share the author’s Catholic faith, while others hold a firmly secular worldview. What they have in common is a commitment to peaceful pro-life action.

About the author

Ellen Kolb

I’m a Catholic hiking pro-life activist who writes about all of it, which makes branding a problem but keeps life interesting.

My pro-life advocacy at New Hampshire’s State House sparked the creation of the blog Leaven for the Loaf.

Being a mother of five prepared me to pursue and write about multiple interests, especially my Catholic faith, pro-life commitment, and favorite New Hampshire trails.

I’ve spoken at conferences, rallies, and churches all over New Hampshire. I’ve been a political campaign staffer, a consultant to nonprofit organizations, and a volunteer with groups dedicated to conservation and recreation.
