Three weeks from tomorrow–can it be that soon?–and pro-lifers from around the globe will descend on Herndon, Virginia, for the 2016 National Right to Life Convention. If you have never attended, you must go to nrlconvention.com to register. If you have attended, you know you need to mark July 7-9 down on your calendar.
That roster of speakers includes Guy Benson, who is the Political Editor of Townhall.com, a Fox News Contributor, and co-author of “End of Discussion”; a panel discussion titled “The Deadly Consequences of Medical Discrimination”; and a panel of pro-life women who will discuss “Sharing Our Stories: How Abortions Affects Women’s Lives.” These women will come at abortion from every angle: those who have had an abortion, those who have survived an abortion attempt, and those who have worked for the abortion industry and left.
Today I’d like to talk about three other dynamic speakers.
At the Friday morning Prayer Breakfast, Jean Garton, the ultimate pro-life story teller, will educate, delight, and motivate you. If you missed her essay that we reposted yesterday, take a moment to read, “You cannot ‘unsee,’ once your eyes are open to the tragedy of abortion.”
Closing out the three-day convention, we will have a husband and wife team– The Hon. Matthew Schlapp and Mercedes Viana Schlapp –to address attendees at the closing Banquet. Both have vast public policy (they met while working in the White House) and media experience, including contributions to CNN, C-SPAN, the Wall Street Journal, the Washington Post, the Washington Times, the Hill, Politico, Breitbart, Daily Caller, U.S. News and World Report, FOXNews.com, and the Hill.
Also, we will hear from pro-life hero Congressman Chris Smith with a legislative update.
