Pro-Life: An Awakening Conference (September 24,2016)

This was forwarded to me a short time ago.  I thought that I would share.


A little background on how we got here - last year, I read a book entitled Persuasive Pro-Life: How to Talk About Our Culture's Toughest Issues by Trent Horn (Catholic Answers,  It changed my life.  After completing the book, I knew it was the resource that needed to be in the hands of every pro-lifer.  The book is a synthesis of all the very best pro-life defenses for pro-choice arguments by Mr. Horn who has a decade of experience defending life where it matters most - person-to-person.  I thought, "What if every pro-life person utilized Trent's gracious and persuasive approach and just changed the mind of one other person?"  What if?  Could we change the county?  The state?  The country?  So, with my husband, Seth, my partner in crime Kitty LaHood Adams, and Charles County Right to Life president, Sid Marcus, we began a book study of Persuasive Pro-Life this past January.

What began as a book study has blossomed into a fledgling grassroots movement.  Here's where our pro-life conference, Pro-Life: An Awakening comes in.  We've asked Trent Horn, the author, to come and speak to as many pro-lifers as we can pack into the St. Joseph's Parish Center, in a seminar-style speaking engagement.  We're pairing Trent Horn's powerful keynote address with an afternoon session on using your power as a Maryland constituent and voter and an impact session designed to send everyone in attendance out like Christ sent His disciples to change the world!  We know with enough support and attendees, we can do something about the culture of death in this country by first changing our community into a culture of life. 

The conference website, which is the best way to find out more and to keep abreast of updates, is  Right now, the Trent Horn Keynote, lunch, a pro-life networking fair, and both afternoon workshops is just $10 at the Early Bird Registration rate!  We've purposely kept registration low and sought outside sponsorship so that this event is truly open and accessible to everyone.  The pertinent information is as follows:
