Goodness, not until I listened to today’s Pro-Life Perspective did it dawn on me that we are less than a month from THE pro-life educational event of the year—the 2012 National Right to Life Convention, which runs June 28-30. For information how to register and reserve a hotel room at the Hyatt Regency Crystal City Hotel, click on http://stoptheabortionagenda.com/convention.
National Right to Life President and Pro-Life Perspective Host Carol Tobias will use Thursday’s and Friday’s broadcasts to remind you why you and your family and your friends ought to attend the convention, which takes places minutes from Washington, DC.
Think about how the good news that is taking place—everything from legislation to the growth of pro-life camps to the big decline in people self-identifying as “pro-choice”—and how that those good tidings are directly connected to what will take place those three days in June.
There is a reason Congressman Chris Smith calls NRLC “the hub, the nerve center, of the pro-life movement” and the late-Congressman Henry Hyde described NRLC as “the flagship of the pro-life movement.” NRLC is indispensable to our Movement and the convention is indispensable both in grooming young people for leadership positions and in bringing the latest information to grassroots pro-life America. First held in 1971 at Macalester College in St. Paul, Minnesota, the National Right to Life Convention grows in importance, year by year.
Mrs. Tobias puts it this way:
“At the convention, you’ll hear from grassroots, state, and national leaders and be able to meet with them personally. You will learn about all the amazing new strides being made in legislation, the great victories at the state and national level, and the newest battles we must fight.”
But perhaps most important of all you will around fellow champions, the kind of people who are there for the babies in season and out, when times are flush and when times are rough. That mutual encouragement alone is worth coming for.
In Part Two, Mrs. Tobias will elaborate on her closing comments today:
“This Convention isn’t just for leaders in the movement; it’s for everyone. It’s for the teenager just learning about pro-life issues, and the veteran volunteer who knows, as well as anyone, that the real force of the movement comes from those who are willing to give of their time to make phone calls or stuff envelopes. It’s for the interested citizen looking for tools to take back to their local community. In short, the convention is for you.”
