    Hello Everyone,

    Re: Life Movement?

    Movement here has a similar meaning to organization or campaign. The "right to life" movement opposes abortion on the grounds that a fertilised egg becomes human at the point of conception.

    Affiliated means he is a member of one of these organizations or works with them.

    Attention: I'm not a teacher.



    Hi sky753,

    There are some words concerning the matter in question:

    The Christian Life Movement (CLM) was founded in 1985, in Peru. At that time a number of initiatives from members of the Sodalitium Christianae Vitae, now a Society of Apostolic Life, had already begun to bloom.
    Christian Life Movement members who participate in Pro-Life have felt a calling to promote the sexual ethic which springs from the faith of the Church and is taught by the Magisterium. Members of this service promote, encourage and defend the Christian way of living sexuality, and respect for human life, from its conception until its natural death.


    Provides HIV prevention services to incarcerated/adjudicated, drug treatment-based and shelter-based homeless youth in Philadelphia using a theater-based approach grounded in behavior change theory. Trained peer actors use theater-based and skill-based components to teach HIV prevention skills, HIV risk reduction and explore issues addressing HIV risk-related behavior.

    affiliated belong (to), be reckoned
    joined, added (to), integrated (with),

    affiliated [only before noun]
    an affiliated organization/club/member etc an organization, club etc that is a member of a larger group or organization, or is closely connected with it:
    The Association provides information on affiliated clubs.

    Regards.
