March 9, 2011 (LifeSiteNews.com) – A brand new program from EWTN, the Catholic View for Women, features two leaders in the pro-life movement as well as a third well-known pro-life Catholic commentator as co-hosts. The show, a takeoff from the popular women’s morning talk and entertainment program, ABC’s The View, will premiere on EWTN Global Catholic Network on March 11.
While The View’s panel includes the likes of Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar, Elisabeth Hasselbeck, and Sherri Shepherd, all of whom laud abortion and same-sex “marriage” rights, hosts of the Catholic View for Women include Teresa Tomeo, Janet Morana, and Astrid Bennett Gutierrez, well-known for their efforts in pro-life and pro-family work.
“As hard as it apparently is for most television shows to realize, the view of millions of women goes beyond the mirror – it even goes beyond Manhattan,” said Janet Morana, Executive Director of Priests for Life, co-founder of the Silent No More Awareness Campaign, and co-host of The Catholic View for Women. “We will be talking about the real world where real women face real issues.”
Astrid Bennett Guitierrez, Executive Director of Los Angeles Pregnancy Services, said, “Anyone tired of the same old view should tune in and give us a look. You’re going to like what you see.”
EWTN announced that in the first episode the co-hosts will share the goals of The Catholic View for Women and their testimonies. Future shows include, among other topics, “Radical Feminism vs. New Feminism,” on Friday, May 13 and “Extreme Makeover: Seeing Yourself through the Eyes of Christ,” on Friday, June 10.
“On The Catholic View for Women our feminism will fully embrace life, not self, and our makeovers will start at the foot of the cross, not 5th Avenue,” said the third co-host Teresa Tomeo.
The show will air Friday at 3:00 am EST and again at 6:30 pm EST.
