The Susan B. Anthony List has recognized five young women who have displayed strong pro-life leadership. I'm happy to see that there's a nice balance of secular and religious (both Catholic and Protestant) activism. And I fully agree with the idea that "youth are not the future of the pro-life movement. We are the pro-life movement."
Let's meet the winners:
Amanda Haas is a sophomore at Liberty University, where she leads a pro-life prayer group. She organized a pro-life conference at the university, and has raised nearly $1000 for a local pregnancy center.
Amanda Lahr is Senior Legislative Assistant in the office of Congressman Joe Pitts, where she has worked behind the scenes on a variety of pro-life legislative battles. She is a graduate of Gordon College.
Laura Elizabeth Peters is a graduate of the University of Alabama. She is a leader of Alabama Students for Life, helped coordinate a local 40 Days for Life campaign, and participated in the SFLA summer internship program.
Lila Rose... okay, if you don't know who she is by now, shame on you. She's an obvious choice for the award.
Jill Sanders is a graduate of Fransiscan University and produces EWTN's "Live on the Rock," a pro-life show geared toward Catholic young adults. She is also responsible for covering the annual Walk for Life West Coast.
