St. Tammany Right to Life is a non-denominational 501(c)(3) corporation desicated to promoting life.  St. Tammany RTL became a chapter of the LA Right to Life in 1986 with it's primary focus on education and legislation.

St Tammany RTL has been a resource for schools by providing speakers to show the fetal development models (rubber models showing in real scale the development of the fetus in the womb) to elementary and high school youth. Working alongside the Crises Pregnancy Centers and many churches, St. Tammany Right to Life members have given countless Pro Life presentations and worked tirelessly on legislation and ensuring that voters are informed regarding candidate's positions on life issues.

Two annual events are hosted by St. Tammany Right to Life, the Slidell Life Chain-which attracts 1,000 plus people, and the St. Tammany Right to Life Oratory Contest for high school juniors and seniors. Quarterly meetings are held in February, May, August and November at different locations to encourage participation by people of various faiths.

The chapter also offers scholarships to Camp Joshua and the Joshua Leadership Institute for high school and college students.

The chapter supports the crises pregnancy centers and Danielle Inn.
