Upcoming events: #ProtestPP, remembering the victims of the one-child policy, and more


There are several upcoming events that may be of interest to our readers.

The #ProtestPP rallies on August 22 were so successful, the organizers have prepared an encore. There will be more protests tomorrow at Planned Parenthood locations across the country. Find your protest here.

On September 25, China marked the 35th anniversary of its one-child policy, which can only be described as a human rights disaster. As we previously reported, Americans United for Life had planned an event to mark this tragic anniversary, but it was postponed for security reasons. (To my knowledge, there was no specific threat; AUL's office is in a central area of Washington, D.C. and gets caught up in security issues on occasion.) The event has now been rescheduled for Tuesday, October 13 at 6:00 p.m. It will feature the incredibly brave Chinese human rights activist Chen Guangcheng, Reggie Littlejohn of Women's Rights Without Frontiers, and Americans United for Life CEO Charmaine Yoest. Registration is required. Details here.

The annual Pro-Life Day of Silent Solidarity is coming up. Mark your calendars for Tuesday, October 20 and check out SilentDay.org.

And finally, registration for the Students for Life of America conferences is open! The east coast conference will be in Upper Marlboro, MD (the D.C. burbs) on Saturday, January 23, the day after the March for Life. The west coast conference will be in San Francisco on Sunday, January 24, the day after the Walk for Life. Secular Pro-Life president Kelsey Hazzard will speak at both conferences. Registration is required, and they always sell out, so don't procrastinate! Get all the details and purchase your tickets at SFLAlive.org.
