Your president Kelsey Hazzard here. What a whirlwind week! I’m finally home and able to look back on SPL’s incredible advocacy for life on the 42nd anniversary of Roe v. Wade.
On Thursday at 11:00 a.m., I gathered with some of SPL’s strongest supporters, both non-theist and theist, to announce Pro-Life Allies, a new coalition dedicated to ending infighting and focusing our energies on saving lives. A video of the press conference is below. (Many thanks to pro-life atheist Michael Crone for videotaping.)
We then marched together on the national mall with SPL’s impossible-to-miss banner:
|Pro-life lesbian atheist blogger and researcher extraordinaire
Sarah Terzo of ClinicQuotes.com
|Our liberation CANNOT be bought with the
blood of our children!
|“The world says I’m unwanted, but I am adopted and loved.”
In the background: “When our liberation costs innocent lives,
it is merely oppression redistributed.”
After a much-needed night’s sleep, it was off to the Students for Life of America national conference in Upper Marlboro, MD. Photos here. Secular Pro-Life distributed outreach kits to 88 schools from across the country! And already, students who couldn’t make the conference are asking if we have any left over that we can send to them. (Answer: yes, we still have a few left. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to claim one for your school. If you’re not a student but appreciate what we’re doing, we’d appreciate your donation to help cover shipping costs.)
A recap of SPL’s activities in California for the West Coast Walk for Life will appear on the blog later this week. Thank you so much for all of your support!
