TeenSpeak 2013: “Reclaiming Our Generation for Life”

—Posted by John (January 16, 2013 at 11:37 am)

On Saturday, February 2, Generations for Life is excited to bring you TeenSpeak 2013, Illinois’ largest annual pro-life teen conference.

TeenSpeak 2013 will feature The Radiance Foundation’s Ryan Bomberger, who is one of the fastest rising stars in the pro-life movement.

His own personal story gives Ryan a very unique perspective on abortion. He was conceived in rape, but his biological mother courageously chose to place him for adoption with a large, multi-racial family:

Today, Ryan is himself an adoptive father of four children and an Emmy Award winning creative professional who specializes in training pro-lifers to communicate their message through visual media in the most impactful way possible. You won’t want to miss the chance to meet him! (more…)

Eric Shares Expertise at International Pro-Life Youth Conference

—Posted by John (November 14, 2012 at 9:51 am)

Eric Scheidler speaks at the International Pro-Life Youth Conference in Los Angeles Nov. 10 This past weekend, Eric Scheidler and I traveled to Los Angeles for the second annual International Pro-Life Youth Conference to join hundreds of enthusiastic young pro-lifers and an All-Star cast of speakers, including Lila Rose, Fr. Frank Pavone, Ryan Bomberger, Star Parker, Troy Newman, Bryan Kemper, and Kristan Hawkins.

The conference was hosted by Survivors of the Abortion Holocaust and Priests for Life and co-sponsored by several other including the Pro-Life Action League League, which provided copies of our Sharing the Pro-Life Message handbook to all attendees.

On the first day of the conference, Eric Scheidler delivered a new PowerPoint presentation provocatively titled “First Convince Them You’re Wrong”.

Eric explained that when we talk about abortion with those who are firmly committed to the “pro-choice” ideology, they very often think that the pro-life position doesn’t deserve a hearing, and that we pro-lifers are completely crazy.

Our first step, then, has to be convince our “pro-choice” audience that they need to give the pro-life position a second look. (more…)

Come to the International Pro-Life Youth Conference Nov. 9-11

—Posted by Eric Scheidler (October 30, 2012 at 3:19 pm)

IPYC 2012 logoTwo of the most exciting things going on the pro-life movement right now are:

  1. The exploding pro-life youth movement
  2. The expanding ties among pro-lifers internationally

These two dynamic forces are coming together next week at the second annual International Pro-Life Youth Conference, November 9-11 in Los Angeles.

The conference is being hosted by Survivors and Priests for Life, with the sponsorship of Ireland’s Youth Defence, Students for Life of America, such cutting-edge pro-life groups as Stand True Ministries, the Radiance Foundation—and Generations for Life’s parent organization, the Pro-Life Action League.

I’m proud to be one of the speakers at the IPLY Conference, along with such pro-life “rock stars” as: (more…)

Bringing Our Campuses to Life!

—Posted by Warren (October 22, 2012 at 3:48 pm)

SFLI conference logoThis weekend, downtown Chicago was rocked by the presence of over 85 college students from 16 Midwestern colleges in the annual Students for Life of Illinois Conference at Loyola University. Keynote speakers shared personal struggles and years of wisdom in their presentations on how we can become effective pro-life leaders.

Students were inspired by Melissa Ohden, a saline abortion survivor who has dedicated her life to showing the trauma of abortion on families. Marko Culjak, a freshman in the UIUC business school, says, “If you’re on the fence about abortion, you would be inspired by Melissa Ohden’s talk.” Ohden and the other speakers brought a powerful personal note to the emotionally charged conference as we were compelled to seriously examine why we are pro-life, and how to spread the message across our campuses.

National Pro-Life Chalk Day Is September 6

—Posted by John (August 22, 2012 at 8:07 am)

sidewalk chalkWhen I first heard about National Pro-Life Chalk Day, I thought to myself: “This is a GREAT idea!”

On Thursday, September 6, Rock for Life and Students for Life of America are inviting pro-life students everywhere to take part in this very simple, yet very impactful event.

The idea is simple:

  1. Pick up some sidewalk chalk
  2. Find an area that has a lot of foot traffic
  3. Use your chalk to write pro-life messages

If you chalk pro-life messages all around your school campus — or anywhere else — you’re sure to get a lot of discussions started about abortion!

You can find suggested chalkable pro-life messages and other tips on the National Pro-Life Chalk Day website.

Great Pro-Life Internship Opportunity from AbortionWiki.org

—Posted by John (July 25, 2012 at 8:53 am)

abortionwiki.org logoEarlier this year at the March for Life, I spent a lot of time talking with New Zealand born pro-life activist Andy Moore, who has started a great website called AbortionWiki.org, a comprehensive database built on the model of Wikipedia that aims to be the reference of choice for all information relating to abortion.

Now Andy has a great opportunity for all pro-lifers, but particularly teens and young adults, who would like to get involved in helping the pro-life movement by working with him on this important project.

The AbortionWiki Internship is a 10 week program which will provide you with an improved understanding of many crucial aspects of the fight to abolish abortion. These will include skills specific to the injustice of abortion, as well as skills which will be applicable in many other fields. The Internship is aimed at pro-life youth, however people of any age are welcome to apply. The internship is FREE and dates are flexible. You will learn a lot and make new friends in the Pro-Life Movement!

Get more details and apply for this great opportunity here!

Don’t Take Free Speech for Granted

—Posted by John (July 18, 2012 at 3:50 pm)

freespeechnz.org logoAlthough there are certainly some exceptions, high school and college students in the United States are usually able to form pro-life clubs and operate on their campuses with relatively little trouble from the administration.

But students in other countries don’t always have it so easy.

Consider the case of Prolife Auckland, a student club at Auckland University in New Zealand who “embrace a secular pro-life philosophy.”

On May 16, members of the group distributed copies of this leaflet [PDF] titled “Right to Know,” dealing with informed consent and abortion.

The university students association claimed to have received an anonymous complaint about the leaflet, and as a result, tried to have Prolife Auckland banned from campus.

Seriously.

To illustrate the insanity of it all, Prolife Auckland produced this video: (more…)

Over 100 Cities to Rally for Religious Freedom on June 8

—Posted by John (May 4, 2012 at 2:12 pm)

Stand Up Rally locationsThe next Stand Up for Religious Freedom Rally is still more than a month away, and this week our list of cities taking part reached 101!

The number of cities already on board for June 8 shows that the massive turnout seen at the first Nationwide Rally on March 23 wasn’t just a one-time thing.

Opposition among the American people to the HHS Mandate’s assault on religious freedom is intense—and getting stronger!

From Portland, Maine to Portland, Oregon and all the way out to Honolulu, Hawaii, Americans of all ages are sending a message that we will not stand idly by while the federal government forces all employer health plans to provide free contraceptives, sterilizations, and abortion-inducing drugs, regardless of any moral or religious objections.

Check out the Locations Page to see all the cities taking part and find a Rally near you.

National Pro-Life T-Shirt Week: April 24-30

—Posted by John (April 9, 2012 at 2:02 pm)

NPLTWNine years ago, American Life League came up with a simple idea: they asked pro-lifers of all ages to wear a Pro-Life T-Shirt for one day in April.

They called it “National Pro-Life T-Shirt Day”.

Since then, the Day has gotten bigger and bigger each year. In fact, it’s so big that National Pro-Life T-Shirt Day has now become National Pro-Life T-Shirt WEEK!

The great thing about wearing a pro-life T-shirt at your school, at work, or wherever, is that it gets people talking about the humanity of the unborn child and the violence of abortion — which a lot of people never think about.

Imagine how many people’s minds can be changed — and babies’ lives can be saved — when we give this witness for 7 straight days from April 24th through 30th!

There’s more information here.

To participate, you can wear one of the official NPLTW shirts (available here), or any other pro-life shirt.

I hope you’ll join me in participating in National Pro-Life T-Shirt Week. Just by wearing a pro-life T-shirt and being out there in public, you’ll be helping to build a Culture of Life!

Be a Part of History This Friday

—Posted by John (March 19, 2012 at 2:57 pm)

Stand Up for Religious FreedomThis Friday, March 23, you have a chance to be a part of history.

The Nationwide Rally for Religious Freedom is being held this Friday, March 23 at noon, local time, outside federal buildings, Congressional offices and historic sites all across the country.

The theme for the Rally is “Stand Up for Religious Freedom—Stop the HHS Mandate!”

Thousands of Americans of all faiths and of all ages will be participating in these peaceful rallies — organized by our parent organization, the Pro-Life Action League, along with Citizens for a Pro-Life Society — to oppose the new mandate from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) that requires all employers provide free contraceptives, sterilizations, and abortion-inducing drugs through their health plans, even in violation of their consciences.

There is going to be a very strong youth representation at the more than 100 Rally sites across the country, and I hope you’ll be a part of it!

You can find the site nearest you here.

Teens Launch 2012 Pro-Life Letter Campaign

—Posted by John (March 7, 2012 at 10:40 pm)

We recently received an email from 15-year old Angela Kim, president of the Teenage Life Club, who asked us to promote a very ambitious project their club is sponsoring: the 2012 Pro-Life Letter Campaign.

We’re happy to help!

Here is Angela’s letter:

The Teenage Life Club is hosting The 2012 Pro-Life Letter Campaign, and we need your help, participation, and prayer. We are a small, national group of six teenage girls in five different states. Our goal is to have 1 million letters sent to the White House and the Supreme Court during the month of March.

Why are we doing this and why should you participate? Abortion has been in this country long enough, and The Teenage Life Club has decided to help bring it to an end. 1 million letters won’t stop abortion, but it will make an impact in the pro-life movement. As elections approach, we want to remind this nation that abortion is still present. It is deadly, it is wrong, and we still care. (more…)

South Carolina Youth Rally a Huge Sucess

—Posted by John (March 1, 2012 at 4:37 pm)

Pro-life literature on display at South Carolina Catholic Youth Rally for LifeA few months ago, we received a call from Mary Beth Vernau, a high school senior from South Carolina, who requested that we send some of our pro-life materials to distribute at the South Carolina Catholic Youth Rally for Life on January 14.

Needless to say, we were more than happy to do that!

Earlier this week, we heard back from Mary Beth, who wrote to tell us that the youth rally was a great success.  Total attendance was nearly 1,000 — double the size of last year’s event!

She also sent along several testimonials from teens who attended the rally. The one that jumped out at me the most was this one, from Josh R., age 14: (more…)

Chicago Pro-Life Clubs Doing Great Work

—Posted by John (February 3, 2012 at 11:41 am)

GFL Pro-Life CurriculumThere’s an article in the current issue of the Catholic New World — the newspaper of the Archdiocese of Chicago — highlighting four strong pro-life clubs at Chicago area high schools: St. Patrick and Mother McAuley High Schools in Chicago, Regina Dominican High School in Wilmette, and The Willows Academy in Des Plaines.

All of these clubs have either used our Pro-Life Curriculum, or had members attend our TeenSpeak conferences over the past few years — or both — and based on personal experience, I can assure you that they’re all doing great work!

You can read the article here.
