Start making your plans to attend NRLC 2022, National Right to Life’s annual convention! 

By Jacki Ragan

The upcoming National Right to Life Convention, June 24 and June 25, promises to be one of the best ever!  Held in Atlanta, Georgia, this is an event you do not want to miss. For details, please visit nrlconvention.com. 

We will host 48 workshops, 5 General Sessions, an opening Prayer Breakfast, a closing Banquet, a National Teens for Life Convention, Pro-Life Exhibits,  and the opportunity to meet and talk with other pro-lifers from all across the nation. Childcare is, of course, provided.

Let me give an updated list of speakers which we are adding to constantly.

We open the convention with our Prayer Breakfast. Our speaker is Catherine Davis, the founder and president of The Restoration Project. She often partners with the National Black Prolife Coalition, the Network of Politically Active Christians, and the Frederick Douglas Foundation in an ongoing effort to educate Americans about the issues that are impacting the Black community. 

Right after the Prayer Breakfast, heading our first General Session is Wesley J. Smith, J.D., one of our most popular speakers. Wesley will be speaking on “Preventing Technocracy Crucial to Sanctity of Life.” You are familiar with him as an author whose columns are regularly reposted in National Right to Life News Today. Wesley is now Chair, Discovery Institute’s Center on Human Exceptionalism, and is Host of their “Humanize” Podcast.

On Friday afternoon, we will host a session featuring Melissa Ohden, who survived a saline abortion meant to take her life in 1977. She manages the website, The Abortion Survivor Network.

In her words, “Behind the word ‘choice’ is a person. You are more than a choice. So are we. We’re someone’s son or daughter, grandchild, sibling, niece or nephew, cousin, friend, co-worker, neighbor. Many of us are someone’s spouse, someone’s parent.” 

This session is a must attend to be on top of what is going on and the sheer number of abortion survivors.  

On Friday night NRLC 2022 welcomes Super Bowl Champion & Author Matt Birk. A graduate of Harvard University, Matt was the recipient of the 2011 Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year award for his excellence on and off the field. Matt speaks to organizations across the country about the value of true inspiration, lasting leadership principles, the dynamics of teamwork, and fulfilling potential. 

We will also hear from David Scotton, whose story was featured in “I Lived on Parker Avenue” and will be featured this summer in the new Kendrick’s Brothers film, “Lifemark.” The National Right to Life Video Contest winner will also be announced for 2022 at this session!

Opening the second day of the convention is Rep. Michelle Fischbach, J.D, discussing “The Guide to Winning!” Others will also be joining us for this session so check back to the website often for new names added. 

Saturday afternoon, we will feature the must attend session tentatively titled, “More than a Tylenol ~ Risky Business” and will bring you completely up to date on the “abortion pills” and Abortion Pill Reversal.  We are bringing back Dr. George Delgado and several others for this session.  Find out what you need to know about chemical abortions, how many are being done, what you can do to help save lives, and hear the testimony of some that have been through the process.  

Closing out NRLC 2022 jam-packed two-day convention is Jim Daly, president of Focus on the Family. The daily radio program which he hosts has a massive audience of more than 5.6 million listeners a week and has been honored as Program of the Year by the National Religious Broadcasters. He will be joined by the winner of the National Right to Life Oratory Contest who will deliver his or her winning speech.

Our number one goal each and every year for the convention is to make you glad you came, felt you received your money’s worth and that you can’t wait for the next one. The General Sessions alone will be well worth the trip. 

We really are looking forward to seeing each and every one of you in Atlanta. Check nrlconvention.com regularly as new speakers are added.
