The NRLC board of directors met this past weekend to conduct the business of the preeminent single-issue pro-life organization in the nation.
Much of the conversation revolved around today’s vote in the Senate Judiciary Committee on the nomination of Judge Neil Gorsuch to replace the late Justice Antonin Scalia on the Supreme Court and whether, as expected, pro-abortion Senate Democrats attempt to filibuster his nomination.
But that left plenty of opportunity to talk about the annual gathering of pro-life activists from across North America–National Right to Life’s three-day educational conference held this year in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
As the PDF below explains, this has become an annual event for grassroots pro-lifers. Its uniqueness is that the subject matter covered is so comprehensive there are multiple opportunities to learn whether you’ve been in the Movement for decades or just threw your lot in with the greatest movement for social justice of our time.
Workshop topics (the heart and soul of the convention) range from the connection between abortion and breast cancer, the dangerous campaign for “Do-It-Yourself” abortions through debunking the myths about embryonic stem cells and the legacy of Terri Schindler Schiavo. They will be supplemented by multiple general sessions, a Friday morning Prayer Breakfast, and a Saturday night closing Banquet.
We will be posting additional stories about the general session speakers over the next three months. So far you’ve already had the opportunity to read about author/speaker/columnist Ben Shapiro and Ann McElhinney, one-half of the dynamic team that has produced both a book about abortionist Kermit Gosnell — Gosnell: The Untold Story of America’s Most Prolific Serial Killer–and a forthcoming movie, “Gosnell.” There will be a sneak-peak screening of “Gosnell” at the convention.
When you go to nrlconvention.com, you’ll find all the information you need, not only about the guest speakers already lined up, but also how you can register online in just a couple of minutes.
It’s April 3rd. Hard as it may be to believe, June 29th will be here before you know it. Be sure to register soon!
