If you haven’t already, it is really time to make plans to attend the pro-life educational event of the year: NRLC’s annual convention. NRLC 2016 takes place this year in Herndon, Virginia. July 7-9. (For full details about the convention, see nrlconvention.com.)
It is my pleasure each year to alert everyone to an important gathering at the convention—which actually takes place the night before NRLC 2016 officially opens.
It is the annual meeting of the Association for Interdisciplinary Research in Values and Social Change. Beginning at 8:00 pm, July 6, some of the finest pro-life researchers and educators will deliver a series of papers on very important and relevant subjects.
If you are not familiar with the group, the Association for Interdisciplinary Research in Values and Social Change is a professional organization which offers a forum to exchange ideas of scientific and social science disciplines. The Association is a network of pro-life professionals who encourage research and academic publication and the development of textbooks and curricula for high schools and colleges.
You can access past Association bulletins at abortionresearch.us. This is very much worth your time. If you can come on Wednesday, July 6, you will be given the opportunity to hear:
Priscilla Coleman, Ph.D., Developmental Psychology Professor, Bowling Green State University, Bowling Green, Ohio. The topic of her talk is Analysis of Research and the Scientific Literature on Abortion and Women’s Mental Health.
Angela Lanfranchi, M.D., Breast Surgeon and Clinical Assistant Professor of Surgery at Robert Wood Johnson Medical School, will speak on The Cover-up of Research Findings that Give Evidence of an Abortion/Breast Cancer Link.
Donna Harrison, M.D., Obstetrics & Gynecology. She is the Executive Director and Director of Research and Public Policy, American Association of Pro-Life Obstetricians and Gynecologists (AAPLOG). Her topic is Pro-Abortion Bias in Professional Organizations: American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology
Dr. Priscilla Coleman will speak on Pro-Abortion Bias in Professional Organizations: American Psychological Association.
The M.C. for the evening is the Association’s president, Wanda Franz, Ph.D. The program is free and refreshments will be served at 10:00 p.m.
Don’t forget: full information about how to register and make hotel reservations, if needed, is found at nrlconvention.com.
