Law of Life Summit is bornJanuary 21, 2012 No Comments
January 21, 2012 -WASHINGTON DC -
Law of Life Summit today! This is the day I and many others have been planning for over three months.
The idea for the Law of Life Summit came about last fall after a meeting with students and faculty at Ave Maria School of Law.
David Bereit had just spoken at an event the night before and a small group of us met for breakfast. At the breakfast the idea for action and collaboration came about. How can we bring leaders together to focus on overturning Roe v Wade? How can students, particularly future pro-life lawyers make use of their intellect and passion for winning the war against abortion?
I went home and my brain was spinning. I kept thinking that the March for Life would be a terrific opportunity for collaboration with pro-life leaders and students. But what exactly do we need to be focusing on?
Law: Roe v Wade at the federal level. We also must consider ways to defeat organizations like Planned Parenthood at the state and local levels.
Media: It will be much easier to change the laws if we can win the hearts and minds of the people. The mainstream media overwhelmingly supports abortion on demand. But, there are increasingly independent pro-life blogs and news websites springing up around the nation and the world. We need to educate people on the truth of abortion and on the assortment of wonderful alternatives that are available.
Action: How can we strategically advance the cause of life? By picking away at the foundation of Roe v Wade or rendering it obsolete through innovative initiatives, we can put an end to 39 years of legal genocide.
Law + media + action, the idea for the Law of Life Summit was born!
Pro-life leaders, lawyers and media professionals will come together with law students from around the country today in Washington D.C..
The Summit objective is to create measurable and achievable objectives for overturning Roe . Wade.
Specifically strategies for ‘engaging local communities’ to defend the Sanctity of Human Life.
