Those are just some of the words that come to my mind when I think about the 52nd annual National Right to Life Convention, which was held last week at the Hyatt Regency at the Pittsburgh Airport.
I met people from around the country who were amazed at the breadth of the material presented. Even long-time advocates for life expressed amazement at all they learned at the jam-packed two day event.
One year after Dobbs v. Jackson overturned the tragic 1973 Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision, the clear message seems to be: Let’s get busy!
Threats to innocent human life abound. And yet, we have so many bright and capable people who are up for the challenge of defending the sanctity of life.
As the host of the 2023 Convention, the Pennsylvania Pro-Life Federation stands ready to assist in the valiant effort to empower pregnant women, people with disabilities, and other vulnerable populations.
Yes, we face a culture of darkness. But the convention equipped us with the light of understanding to point the way to a path of Hope and Healing.
The NRLC Convention 2023 may be history, but the lessons learned will last a lifetime.
